Celebrity Photographers - Behind The Scenes: Lil Jon
Talk about mixing business with pleasure. When Atlanta hip-hop royalty Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz rolled into Playboy's Santa Monica studio to try their hands at the world's greatest job -- Playboy photographer -- they knew before the first flash that they were going to have a blast. Why? Because they brought a party with them. Walking through the facility, Lil Jon clutched his infamous bejeweled goblet and carried a case of his signature Crunk!!! energy drink under his arm. He also toted bottles of vodka and tequila. "We need some ice," he bellowed, as bandmates Big Sam and Lil Bo scrutinized the sexy bedroom set where they would be working. As the drinks flowed and music pumped, Lil Jon, Big Sam and Lil Bo worked together like a well-lubed machine. While one man snapped away, the other two assisted with directions and suggestions, helping pose Cyber Girl Cynthia Lea and tweak the set. After the last picture was taken, the hip-hoppers hopped into bed with Cynthia to take some group shots for posterity. Seemingly in awe of where he was, Lil Bo lied back, looked at his partners and hollered, "Fuck it now, I'm movin' to L.A."
