Here are the 17 Greatest Moments From Lil Jon's Reddit AMA

Who knew he loved snowboarding?

  • We knew Lil Jon was good at making music (“Yeah!” was an instant classic on the mid-2000s bar mitzvah circuit), and that he also did pretty well on Celebrity Apprentice (yep, we watched that).

    But as of yesterday, we now also know the 43-year-old rapper is capable of hosting the greatest Reddit AMA we’ve ever seen — yes, greater even than that guy with two dicks. 

    It seems the initial purpose of the AMA was to hype up Lil Jon’s new single with DJ Snake, “Turn Down for What,” and its accompanying website. But the end result is something so much more than a mere promotion. It’s funny. It’s poignant. It’s honest. It offers meaningful commentary on world events. It highlights some of Lil Jon’s hopes and dreams. It’s a beautiful window into Lil Jon’s soul, written in all caps.

    Here are some of our favorite moments.
