Kings of Crunk is the fourth studio album by Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz.[5]

Based on the success of the album's second single "Get Low", Kings of Crunk made the top twenty of the US album chart in September 2003. In the same year, Lil Jon put out a compilation CD and DVD called Part II, which included remixes of "Get Low" featuring Busta Rhymes, Elephant Man, and the Ying Yang Twins.

The album was available in an edited version, which removed or replaced profanity, sexually explicit lyrics, and drug and alcohol content, eliminating for instance the song "Weedman" with its pervasive drug references.[citation needed]

The singles "I Don't Give a Fuck" and "Nothin's Free" were released To Radio in 2002, while "Play No Games" and "Get Low" were released to radio in 2003. Also, "Nothin's Free" was released on Vinyl, while "I Don't Give a Fuck" and "Get Low" were released on CD.[citation needed]

"Play No Games" was also released on vinyl and cd In 2003.

The Album Was Certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA in 2003 for Sales of Over 2,000,000 Copies.

This Album Is Usually Seen By Fans As Their Best Album and It Is Considered an Atlanta Classic By Most.[citation needed]
