Rapper Lil Jon made news for traveling cross-country to Atlanta to vote in last week’s mid-term elections.

Coincidentally he had a show in Knoxville, Tenn., a few days later. So naturally he turned up at his adopted school for a visit.

The Atlanta rapper visited with Tennessee’s football team during its bye week and even looked in on a practice.

GOT TO TOUR THE VOLS PRACTICE FACILITY TODAY!! 🍊🍊

Why, you ask?

Well, the Volunteers have adopted Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” as their third-down bump up theme song. He’s so thrilled he made the team a hype video broadcast at Neyland Stadium (see above).

The message here is if you want celebrities to love you, play their music.
