LL Cool J Says

LL Cool J: "This album is mainly for the niggas. It's gritty. This one is not for the ladies."

LL Cool J says he understands his discography can be divided into two different types of projects, according to the rapper's recent interview with Hip-HopVibe.

"In my career, I’ve done two types of albums," LL says, "Cultural albums, and then the ones that people will always like. The people connect with my cultural albums, as it connects with the streets. But, with this new album, I dealt with my man, Bim, and I got all kinds of artists on this album from Maino, Raewkon, Uncle Murda, and a lot of others because I wanted to give them opportunities to shine.

"The other part of it is people wondering what this album is for and this album is mainly for the niggas," he continues. "It’s gritty. This one is not for the ladies. This album features nothing but real stories, true stories, what I want to do keep it true and embrace the current environment and take it to the next level. I am not trying to sound like I’m from down South and I’m not trying to sound like I’m '90s New York. It ain’t about how old you are, it’s about how you connect with the people."

LL Cool J's career spans nearly three decades. The emcee's debut album, Radio, was released in 1985 under Def Jam Recordings. His most recent album, Authentic, was released in 2013. That album featured Charlie Wilson, Snoop Dogg, Chuck D and Monica, among others. 

Authentic earned a 2.5 out of 5 X rating in its HipHopDX review.

    I like a lot of LL's older music, but it's time to wrap this shit up. It's embarrassing now.

    Can't front, Cool J is one of the building blocks of this hip hop thing as we know it, but his last CD was hot garbage (the joint with Brad Paisley, anyone?) He's an actor now. Taking bets on the producers so he can 'seem' relevant now: Mike WIll Made It, DJ Mustard, (any producer with a trap beat. He should gracefully hang up the mic. If he continues, he's just tarnishing his legacy by putting out bullshit.

    People diss LL for his joint for the females, but he's a beast on the mic.

      But he's not when he makes bullshit ladies tracks.
    • Anonymous
      He doesn't have to be a beast on the mic when he's making songs for the ladies. As long as he keeps it 100. He acknowledges that there are two types of albums that he puts out.
