Lil Jon starts his own winery (Goblet sold separately)

April 4th, 2008 // 55 Comments

Lil Jon may be the greatest mind of our generation. The mad scientist is throwing caution to the wind and daring to combine crunk and classy. How is that even possible, you ask? By starting his own wine label: Little Jonathan Winery. POW! The AP reports:

“It kind of came out of nowhere,” Lil Jon told The Associated Press of his new venture, Little Jonathan Winery. “We were just going to do some private label stuff (for parties) and we did it, and people was like, `Hey, it’s pretty nice.’”
Lil Jon acknowledges that he’s no wine connoisseur. “I’m not no ‘drink wine every day’ kind of dude,” he said in a telephone interview. “I’m not like an expert, so don’t ask me no questions … I just like the taste.”

But Lil Jon wants to make sure customers know he’s dedicated to the quality of his products:

“My full name is Jonathan,” the Atlanta-based artist said. “The wine is more nature: I wanted to not just have a direct connection, but make it just a little bit more upscale than regular ‘Lil Jon.’ … This is not no ghetto Boone’s Farm; this is some real wine.”

Lil Jon: Entrepreneur, pioneer and no drink wine every day kind of dude. His shit’s for real, son – and it tastes like grapes!

Thanks to Karen who, if she were a wine, would be Cabernet sauvig-awesome.

    He just bought the Mad dog 20/20 winery and pimped it……


  3. YEAH!

    OMG, so disgusting. Many friends I met on a millionarie dating site called meetingwealthy.c o m think so too. They are successful men and women. We usually talk together.

  5. Guy


    Just another insignificant rapper talking about his bitches and ho’s no doubt.

  6. Monkeybiz

    As if I would ever consume anything this animal had anything to do with.

  7. Spazz

    Fuck off Franklin.
    And take ‘Lil Annoying Snakeoil salesman with you please.

  8. Randal

    Yikes! Now there’s an ugly face to start Friday off with.

    Hopefully it ends with some Britney.


  9. KillMONTAG

    Ugly fuck, he’d look better is someone steam rollered his head.

  10. heyoooo!!!

    I wouldn’t go anywhere near that man’s grapes.

  11. bootlips

    I’m so tired of these degenerate apes.

  12. Grape kool aid, grape “drink”, and grape ape are no more considered actual wine than Grape Ape is.

  13. I said grape ape twice. I loved that cartoon.

  14. Auntie Kryst

    eeeYAAAYA!! I hear his wines are pretty good. He’s mixing a lot of varietals with certain herbs. The Rzaling pairs nicely with Popeyes chicken. The Chibaney and Syrahsemia are very palatable, nice balance of tannins and paranoia. Trouble is you feel the urge to eat a wheel of brie after drinking them.

  15. I enjoy fermented canibus as well.

  16. LOL

    This guy is hilarious. I mean hes just another dumb smoke but good for him for thinking otherwise. I love him!

  17. Guy

    I guess he needs sum’ purple drink to grip n’ sip

  18. Erik

    It scares me that, because he’s some second-rate “musician” that he’ll probably make a buttload of cash doing this. God bless America.

  19. I got no problem with anyone who tries to make a nice bottle wine..

  20. bakinmycake

    New bottle features include a place to put your 9, fingerprint proof glass, optional molitav cocktail and also available in the convienent to go size of 32, 64 and 128 ounce sizes!!!!!

  21. LB

    nice rope

  22. Grunion

    You can never be too crunk.

  23. Sam

    To “keep it real” he dips his teef into every batch before it’s bottled. Enjoy.

  24. toolboy

    He named a winery after his penis??
    Can you imagine a wine tasting at his winery? Maybe some wine pairings with Michael Chiarello or Martha Stewart…I would pay cash to see that.
    Michael: “Today we’re going with a special Mother’s Day theme. My mother always loved a good meal and good wine, along with plenty of good friends. For the main course we are going to make a delicious Slow-Roasted Halibut with Asparagus and Salsa Genovese. That covers our good meal, and for good wine and good friends, I have invited an entertainer and budding wine maker, Lil Jon. Lil Jon, what vintage have you paired with todays offerings?”

  25. crabby old guy

    Where’s a nice pandemic when you need one?

  26. MLK

    Another minstrel living Dr. King’s dream.

  27. #25 that was funny!!!

  28. amy

    HAHAHAHAHA #25 that was hilarious!!

  29. bb

    This douche bag is a slimy fucking idiot! I would love to run his ass over with my H2, (or his own H2!)

  30. I wonder when he’ll decide to give Whoopie Goldberg her hair back?

  31. deacon jones

    This guy is the epitomy of what is wrong with this country

  32. MyThai

    I love this:

    Lil Jon: Entrepreneur, pioneer and no drink wine every day kind of dude. His shit’s for real, son – and it tastes like grapes!


  33. I’d buy some if it came with a “grill” and some numbers of bail bondsmen who are cool… if you know what I mean.

  34. The Laughing G-d

    @25 that was good, that was good

  35. sweetz

    boone he is ……..haha

  36. Hannah T

    ARGHHHHH Looking at this guy makes me fear for the human race!!!!!!!!!!! Not to mention giving me a severe urge to vomit.

  37. wino

    This is what musicians are up to now? Because we all download their music instead of pay 20 bucks for one or two songs out of 20? Hah, what will they do next?

    I think Snoop will start a grape farm to sell to “Jonathan”

  38. 0h

    Ew. He fucking scares me.

  39. I am loving #14! Too funny…
    So I guess if you have money you can claim to be a wine maker/producer. I am sure that Paul Hobbs Winery, Silver Oak Cellars & Treana will have to sharpen up on their producing tactics just to keep up. =)

  40. yummy

    i thought monkeys liked bananas…???

  41. That dude is my fucking hero!

  42. sheeee-it

    He’ll never top ‘fit-e cent’…brother make 100 mil on flavored water….sheee-it!

  43. Racer X



    1 rapper, 1 bullet.

  45. bleepingurmom

    why the fuck are you people so racist…yeah he’s ugly but a monkey..come the fuck on now…and # 25…there should be a pandemic on ur dick and balls..

  46. bleepingurmom

    I mean #26..sorry #

  47. khirsch

    Just because he has grill on top doesn’t mean he doens’t have to brush his bottom teeth. Gross.

  48. Lexoka

    Someone should tell him he’s got something on his teeth…

  49. Kiko The Republican Cabana Boy

    Kiko sees Leetle Juan still have his grill. Or did Juan just blow the Tin Man?

    Kiko must run. Senor Senator Craig wants Kiko to do waxing. Brazilian, he say! He such kidder…
