A few years ago I decided to relocate to Seattle and take a job with Microsoft. One of the things I knew I was going to miss was the Atlanta night life and all the various clubs that played crunk music. As luck would have it, I moved here around the same time that music from the Dirty South started to gain national prominence. I'm still taken aback sometimes when I hear Lil Jon played at the average yuppie infested club or bar in downtown Seattle when back in my college days you had to go to clubs outside downtown Atlanta if you wanted to hear Oomp Camp, Lil Jon, Pastor Troy, Ying Yang Twins or any other crunk local acts.

Of course, not all the good crunk stuff gets radio airplay despite how much Lil Jon is being played these days. Below are some of the songs that have been getting regular play as part of my daily routine. Depending on where you live some of it is mainstream while some of it isn't. Enjoy.

  1. Give Me That - Lil Boosie & Webbie (Featuring Bun B)
  2. I Smoke I Drank (remix) - Body Head Bangerz (Featuring Youngbloodz)
  3. Still Tippin' - Mike Jones (Featuring Slim Thug And Paul Wall)
  4. Girlfight - Brooke Valentine (Featuring Lil Jon & Big Boi)
  5. Some Cut - Trillville (Featuring Cutty)

If you have some suggestions for new tracks I should check out, post a comment below.

Man, the first time I heard Lil' Jon in a Boulder, CO club, I had to take a q-tip to my ear, just to be sure. My little brother (Ejike, not Chime) is into deep dirty south (Tennessee, Houston, ATL, etc.) and I've heard all that stuff before, but I've never been all that much into it (OutKast and GooDie MoB are about as stank as I go).

But Boulder club DJs are hoes, anyway. I've heard everything from Norteños and Latino hard-core rap to chopped and screwed to underground Oaktown funk here, all before they really busted out nationally. It's kinda cool.

I'd have to check with Ejike as to whether you need to be checking some other sh...

Thanx for those tunes I really liked them. Can you recommend any other crunk bands?
