Now if you know me you know that I am an avid LL Cool J fan. He taught me that b-boy lifestyle in the 80’s and I haven’t looked back since. But I also came to the realization that LL has seen his better days. The last few albums by him were more miss than […]

One good thing about April Fools is that you know Google will come up with something. This year they introduced Gmail Tap. Hey “You can tap it in the morning, you can tap it at night, you can tap it in the bathroom…”

Well Taylor Swift kind of gets her beatbox on with James Todd. Maybe we can say it is more like she is meowing while LL beatboxes.

  LL Cool J recieved the I Am Hip-Hop Award during the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards. And for his acceptance speech, he pulled out his Blackberry and scrolled thru what possibily could be the Illest Shit He ever Wrote!!! Or at least the illest verse since 2001!! My acceptance speech/ What I won’t do is […]

  Now this would make a great gift for someone out there, we’re sure about that. “Def Jam Recordings: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label is a celebration of the first twenty-five years of the label that defined hip-hop music and culture. This is the story of Def Jam in the […]

We discussed, before, the difficulties that surround the art of cutting a successful cover song of an already classic tune.  Those that do, find an unmistakable way to make the song their own. In the summer of 1987, L.L. COOL J‘s release of “Bigger And Deffer” owned the airwaves and ruled the world of Hip-Hop. […]
