The reason behind the release of his Total Meditation album was revealed by Lil Jon, which, as the title suggests, is a guided meditation record. The artist, known for making music for rowdy nights, explained on the show to Gayle King and Charles Barkley that his age influenced the creation of the album.

“I was turning 50 years old , a lot of things going on in my life, a lot of life changes, health issues. You had to go get that colonoscopy and you’re worried about your health,” Jon stated.

“The meditation was something I started to do to help me deal with the issues that I was dealing with in my life,” he continued, confirming that they were “personal” issues. “It gave me some peace, some calmness, and it calmed my mind. It changed my way of thinking.”

Jon further mentioned that he encountered Total Meditation producer Kabir Sehgal during that period and revealed that they have additional unreleased meditation music. He shared that the album has instilled in him a new sense of purpose, which is to assist people.
