Lil Jon is back in action with his latest song featuring a posthumous appearance by Bay Area legend Mac Dre on “Ain’t No Telling.”
After doing some digging in the crates Jon ran across the song originally produced for Janet Jackson.
“For me, I put Mac Dre right up there with Biggie and ’Pac as legends who have since passed on,” Jon tels XXL. “I woke up one morning and remembered a beat I did for a Janet Jackson remix. She never used it. When I heard his vocals over the beat I was like ‘this is it!’ I think maybe God had me do that beat for Mac Dre the whole time…that was the reason Janet never used it.”
The song was given the green light by the late rapper’s mother, Mac Wanda, who gave Jon her full blessings for the track to be released.
