TMZ cameras caught up with Jonathan Mortimer Smith -- aka Lil Jon -- at the Ed Hardy headquarters in Culver City, Calif., where the boisterous rapper gave his thoughts on all things Britney ... and O.J. Whaaaat?!
The empathetic rapper told TMZ that, "People need to leave Britney alone, pray for her and try to help her." Maybe she can sing a hook for his next single?!
Jon Jon also dishes on O.J., saying, "I think he got set up ... they want to get him for something." Sure, okaaaaay!
