Lil Jon will hype up Miami Wednesday night at Liv Miami Nightclub at the Fontainebleau. Lil Jon has always shown Miami love. His Outta Your Mind 2010 video, which features LMFAO, was filmed around the Fontainebleau pool, at Nikki Beach, Ocean Drive, and other Miami Beach hotspots. According to his latest tweets, the rapper turned Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice began soaking in Miami sunshine on a yacht shortly after arriving on Tuesday. Maybe if you shake it like a salt shaker he'll invite you to board his boat. Cheesy 2003 reference?
