Access 206: J. Pinder Interview

At some point in an artist's career, he can feel like he only do so much in his city. For J. Pinder, that happened and he ended up moving down to Los Angeles in 2012. A move that might have been criticized a little bit, but has turned out to ...

Posts tagged ‘LL Cool J’

Look in your own backyard and realize there is talent in it. Action Bronson did this with a highly unexpected line-up for “Strictly 4 My Jeeps (Remix).” LL Cool J drops what might be his best verse in a decade, riding the beat perfectly, and making it clear that he needs to work with Harry […]

From the last time we heard about LL Cool J’s 14th studio album, the title was Authentic Hip Hop and the album cover was a little eh. There was literally no buzz, so that February 12 release that once was proposed has now been pushed back until May 7. Not only that, but he dropped […]

Did you come to party with two legends and Fatman Scoop hyping it up throughout? LL Cool J may have struck gold a bit with this new single. It’s club friendly and lyrical in ways we know LL and Snoop can do at the same time. Todd Smith also has some words for the critics […]

There’s hope for Authentic Hip Hop and it starts with “Take It.” The late night sexing record gets a treatment that fits well into that grown man notion displayed on the song. Trackmasters really did a solid job on the production. His album comes out in February. Previously: LL Cool J Ft. Joe – Take […]

If you were in the group that didn’t like “Ratchet” (see: everybody), Todd does himself a great justice with “Take It.” The song is more of the radio single that he’s known for, and it’ll do well, but it may not connect as hard as his past singles. Nice to see that Joe is still […]

LL Cool J – Ratchet

October 5th, 2012

With James Todd Smith, his feet are always in two different fields: acting and music. He, like most rappers-turned-actors, doesn’t have a necessarily great balance but he does a good job whenever he invades either one. “Ratchet” won’t blow you away but it’s pretty much how you’d expect LL to go, subject wise, in 2012. […]

To portray a character on NCIS: Los Angeles, Uncle L dove back into the lab with Rico Love, Jim Jonsin and Ne-Yo to craft the perfect song. It’ll be making an appearance on the episode tomorrow. In the mean time, this track is going to get constant rotation treatment. I hope LL drops a new […]

You should expect Busta to do his business all over this record. However, surprisingly, in his first verse in months, Uncle L shows him up. This is the type of music I want to see from the two. Matter fact, they should do an EP together. From one NY legend to another. “You want to […]

I remember when this originally leaked with just Usher and Robin Thicke. It turns out Quincy Jones put it together for his album. The only sore thumb here is deep voice Barry White. You got to respect how creative Quincy can get. Hey Khaled, take some notes. On November 9, go support Soul Boss Nostra. […]

Back when artists did freestyles for DJs a lot more than today, DJ Kay Slay had everyone doing some for him. He even got Eminem to do one and Em doesn’t do that kind of stuff, but I digress. LL Cool J is one of the top 10 of all time for numerous reasons. So, […]
