KORN Frontman To Once Again Collaborate With Rapper LIL JON

According to a post on the KORN fan site KornWeb.cjb.net, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis revealed during an online chat Sunday (March 27) that he will once again be collaborating with rapper Lil Jon on an as-yet-untitled "crunk rock" song. Davis was said to be unsure if the track will end up on Lil Jon's next album or it will surface on an upcoming soundtrack. Jonathan also explained that he and Lil Jon have many things in common, including the fact that both artists have a 9-year-old son named Nathan.

KORN had previously collaborated with Lil Jon on a cover of PUBLIC ENEMY's "Fight the Power", but the rapper's contributions were subsequently replaced by those of XZIBIT — allegedly due to an unspecified "record company" issue. The KORN/XZIBIT collaboration will surface on the soundtrack for "XXX: State of the Union", due April 19 via Jive.

As previously reported, the recording sessions for KORN's as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2003's "Take a Look in the Mirror" are scheduled to begin on April 11. A September release is expected.
