Woman notices that with her parents now in their 70s, every conversation is like talking to Lil Jon.

Sandra Lott (34), whose two parents have just entered their 70s, has made quite a peculiar pop culture connection – they both now sound like rapper, Lil Jon. Known for his limited and repetitive style of lyrics, Lil Jon’s vocal focuses on three words: what, huh, and okay.

“It’s uncanny. As soon as Trev and Beril, my oldies, ticked over into their 70s, their hearing went. That’s when I first noticed the Lil Jon connection,” said Sandra.

At first we here at the Drunkensober Chronicle were skeptical, but after an afternoon with the Lott family we too saw the similarities. Beginning in the mid-afternoon, Sandra started a basic exchange:

Sandra: “Do you want steak for dinner?”

Trev: “What?”

Sandra: “I said do you want steak for dinner?”

Bev: “What?”

Sandra: “DO YOU WANT STEAK?”

Trev and Bev: “Yeah. Okay.”

Having gotten used to having a pair of Lil Jon’s around the place, Sandra now takes every opportunity to have some fun with it.

“Well, their hearing is gone so what can you do but have some fun with it. “Hey, dad? Turn it down for…”

“What?” asks Trev.
