One day while at my son's soccer practice, I took a break from watching my son play sharks and minnows and started goofing around with my iPhone, specifically, "Lil Jon: The Official Soundboard from Gabe Jacobs Productions. In case you're not familiar, Lil Jon is a rapper and music producer, known for his shouts ("Hey!" "Yeah!") in his work. The soundboard displays 17 phrases. Tap on one and you'll hear Lil Jon cry out the phrase.
