Lil Jon, DJing at Surrender, able to balance business, partying

One of the most fascinating, nicest guys in the club scene is rapper Lil Jon, who DJs tonight at Encore’s Surrender nightclub.

One minute, you’ll be talking to him and he sounds like an uber-professional businessman. The next minute, he’s screaming “Yeah!” and “Shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots!”

If you ever saw Dave Chappelle’s old sketch parodying Lil Jon as a half-calm/half-crazy CEO party animal, then you know the Lil Jon stereotype — and that stereotype is correct.

In fact, Lil Jon once told me he loved that Chappelle sketch.

Anyway, if you ever doubted whether he really does party hard, listen to what DJ Steve Aoki tells me about the rapper/DJ at Surrender:

“Lil Jon — he can drink! He’s partying all the time,” Aoki says.

“But if you’re gonna do it, you have to be a Jon — where you have your head on straight, your business straight, your diet and your health straight.

“He’s a very healthy guy. He’s always drinking his green tea. … He’s constantly healthy.

“If there’s anyone who can keep a crazy lifestyle — but maintain the most level-headed, entrepreneurial head on his shoulders — it’s Lil Jon. It’s amazing.”
