Just hours after news surfaced that Lil Jon is helping out those less fortunate in Ghana by building a second grammar school, the hit DJ/producer decides to get back to the music. Earlier in the week, Lil Jon announced that he had a new single dropping this Friday called “Alive” with Offset & 2 Chainz. “I put out my 1st single in 1996 and now 22 years later Im still here,” said Lil Jon. “Can’t wait for everyone to hear my latest single ‘Alive,’” and alas here it is right on schedule.
“Alive” is a loud & boisterous trap anthem that finds Lil Jon celebrating life & thanking God for being “alive,” just as the title depicts. “Thank God that I’m alive,” he screams on the chorus. “I’ve been poppin’ all my life / It’s like my birthday every night.”
Ooh, thankin' the Lord I'm alive (God)
Your diamonds not lookin' alive (dead)
Bentley truck swervin', it's wide (skrrt)
Heard you be talkin' to 12 (who?)
But I do not fuck with them guys (no)
