Musical style

.Jason Birchmeier of allmusic has described Lil Jon's production as "bass-heavy" and his album Put Yo Hood Up as having "a long and varied list of guest rappers to accompany the beats". With the guest performers featured on that album much more than the East Side Boyz, Birchmeier remarked: "[T]he end result is an album that resembles a street-level mixtape rather than a traditional artist-oriented album".[9] Alex Henderson, also of allmusic, compared Lil Jon's style of "rowdy, in-your-face, profanity-filled party music" to other Southern rappers' gangsta rap sound that he perceived as delivering "serious sociopolitical messages".[10] Lil Jon has also found influence in rock music, having worked with Rick Rubin and Korn.^ Crunk Juice is Lil' Jon & The East Side Boyz's 6th studio release.
