7 things to know about Lil Jon

Watch Lil Jon and the Kool-Aid Man drop Christmas beats

Who needs “The Little Drummer Boy” when you have Lil Jon dropping beats with the Kool-Aid Man?

The Atlanta-based rapper has unveiled “All I Really Want for Christmas,” a self-penned track that includes the Kool-Aid Man injecting some “oh, oh yeah’s” to the tune of “Jingle Bells” later in the song.

In the groove-laden jam, Lil Jon name checks the flavored beverage in between his trademark guttural rapping about all he really wants for Christmas (“…is everything on my list, bay-be!”).

The festive video accompanying the song finds Lil Jon bopping around in a Santa hat and shades, dancing with kids and, of course, ditching the egg nog down the sink in favor of…Kool-Aid.

“All I Really Want for Christmas” is streaming on all major platforms. Check out the video below.

Lil Jon also recently spoke to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about his involvement in the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest in the week leading up to the game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
