What!? Lil Jon's favorite is a Sadowsky.

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by tightbidness, Apr 14, 2005.

  1. The May issue of BP arrived in the mail today. There's an interview with ATL session ace LaMarquis Jefferson, who's played with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B. Apparently Jefferson's 5-string Sadowsky is Lil Jon's favorite. I imagine the sessions go something like this. . .

    Jefferson: Would you like the Sadowsky on this track?
    Lil Jon: What?
    Jefferson: The Sadowsky! Should I play the Sadowsky?
    Lil Jon: What!?
    Jefferson: I'm going to play the Sadowsky.
    Lil Jon: OKAY!

    I saw some episode of MTV Cribs with him, and he had a home studio. There was a bass on there, and I think it was a Yammer, but I can't recall. I remember at the time thinking "My that bass is prominently displayed."

    I saw that too, I thought it was an Ibanez, but it was only a glimpse, so I'm not sure. I wondered, when I saw it, if Lil Jon played bass...I guess he doesn't. I also remember seeing an MTV documentary on DMX (I think) and it showed some scenes of him in the studio playing a Fender P for a few tracks.

    Lil Jon is also a big fan of hardcore, Dead Kennedys and Suicidal Tendencies and the like.

    Which month was the Marcus issue? I got a subscription, and that was the first issue, but I thought it was March...I haven't gotten anyting since it, yet. That, and I lost that issue at school, so I can't check myself.

    Like a fair amount of people in Hip Hop, Little John has more of a music background than is readily apparent. There was a good piece in the New york times a few months ago about his ability with the synthesizer. Hip Hop, like R&B before it, is more performance or show oriented in a way than rock. While in rock, the player is out front with his guitar, in hip hop or r&b, the front man or woman may be good musician, but the presentation will emphasize vocals, dancing, or some other aspect of presentation. Fundamentally, this is a cultural difference but it is rarely seen that way.

    I bet you said that out loud to yourself didn't you? I've always imagined that there would be a lot of "my"s in a conversation with you. Maybe a lot of "My word!"s too.
