LL Cool J Is Back In Action After Some Upsetting Tweets.

Thirty-one years after the release of “Rock the Bells” and LL Cool J is still hard as hell. The Queens native joined Dr. Dre‘s “The Pharmacy With Dr. Dre” show on Apple’s Beats 1 Radio and laid down a few bars as the Good Doctor mans the board. Sounding as fresh as he did when he first burst on the scene in the ’80s, LL hasn’t lost a step when it comes to his flow and drops a bar that pays homage to his breakout hit “I Can’t Live Without My Radio.” The legendary MC joined the legendary producer’s show back in Sept. 2015, but the footage of the session just surfaced this week.

LL has been adamant about his status as one of the greats throughout the month of March. On March 2, the MC took to Twitter to respond to a blog post that says “there’s a whole generation of kids who’ll never know that LL Cool J was a rapper, and a pretty good one at that.  “Please stop pretending that we all don’t know [that] I’m one of the best to ever touch that mic,” he tweeted. “I stepped away and let you breathe. I can cut off your air supply with one single. Don’t test me…I don’t care if you Google my net worth. It’s more to it than that. I’m telling you on Twitter.”  Forgive the EXTRA long intro in the video below, the freestyle begins at 0:30.

R.I.P. Chris Lighty.


Chris Lighty was one of Hip-Hop’s most successful executives, helping/managing the careers of numerous artists such as 50 Cent, Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Mariah Carey, Q-Tip, Missy Elliott, Mýa, Diggy Simmons, Cormega, Ja Rule, Mobb Deep, LL Cool J, Nas, and more. Violator Management founder Chris Lighty has passed away in his Bronx Apartment, according to numerous confirmed reports. The cause of death appears to be suicide. A gun was recovered next to his body. His last tweets from 2 days ago are troubling: He retweeted the following: ‘Life is about perspective. It’s not what you see, but how you see it. What you see is what you get.’

I tend to make predictions about songs and their future popularity.  (Some wrong some right)  But I’ve predicted that ‘Look At Me Now’, ‘6 Foot 7’, and ‘Back Seat Driver’ would blow up when most of my colleagues said they’d be duds.  And I’m willing to bet that the new track ‘Killin Em’ from Bussa Bus, and LL Cool J will blow up.  Now I may be correct, I may be wrong, but take a listen to the track by clicking the pic, and let me know what you think.
