Long before Lil Jon named himself the "King of Crunk," he had dreams of ascending the thrown with childhood friends Big Sam and Lil Bo. The Atlanta-based rap group that would become Lil Jon and The Eastside Boyz was originally formed in 1997 with Jon at the helm. Their debut album Get Crunk, Who U Wit: Da Album was released after the popularity of their first nationwide hit single "Bia' Bia." In 2002, the group followed up with the release of Kings of Crunk, made popular by the single "I Don't Give A..." featuring Mystikal and Krayzie Bone. The group also worked with the Ying Yang Twins on "Get Low," Lil Scrappy on "What You Gone Do," and Usher's "Lovers and Friends."
