clue: He and his boyz would like me to ask, "who's the king?" Unfortunately out on the east side, they're stuck asking "WHAT?"

explanation: Lil Jon's band is called the East Side Boyz, and they have an album entitled "Kings of Crunk." Dave Chapelle had fun at Jon's expense borrowing phrases from a song on which he collaborated with Usher. People all over can now be heard screaming "WHAT? OKAY! YEAH!" more…

solved by: Russ Wilhelm, Steve West, Denise Sawicki, Amy Austin, Mike Eberhart, Aaron Shurtleff, Dave Mitzman, Elliot Farney, Jerry Mathis, Scott Horowitz, Megan Baxter, Lori Lancaster, Chris McKinnon, Jackie Mason, E. M., Wendy Hampson, Anthony Lewis, Marc Kelley, and Mike Miller

trivia: This goo has the historical distinction of being the first based on a source photograph taken by one of the players: Erik Bates snapped this photo of Lil Jon at an airport in Atlanta, and asked to turn it into a goo to stump players who rely too much on Google Image Search. Erik wrote the clue and the explanation.
