“This event will be a defining moment in the Crunk movement,” said Lil Jon. “Our AOL Music LIVE! performance is the perfect stage for us (Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz) to show the world how Crunk music is like black punk rock music.”

Months after the live events, individual original performances from these concerts consistently appear on AOL Music’s weekly Top 11 charts, often outpacing the traditional music videos for the same songs.
