Crunk rapper Lil Jon is a man of many talents. Not only can he hype a crowd, produce and DJ, but he also knows how to handle himself in the boardroom which we can see on the current season of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice (he’s been the only one brave enough to get Omarosa fire). But he’s not stopping there.

According to Boston Magazine, Lil Jon has linked up with celebrity Zumba instructor Gina Grant to create a Zumba nightclub series – bringing that nightclub energy to fitness class. While some might think it is an odd collaboration, it makes perfect sense when you think about Jon’s high-level, high-energy crunkness.

“It was a natural fit for me to team up with Zumba and for us to try and do something together because… my voice pushes people a little bit and helps them get a little more amped up,” he said. “I’m known for energy. A lot of people would tweet me and be like, ‘Yo, your song helped me get through my workout today.'”
