LL Cool J Steps Into the Mixtape Realm
Legendary rapper, LL Cool J is preparing his first-ever mixtape titled, The Return of the G.O.A.T., which will be hosted by DJ Kay Slay and is slated to be released in the next couple of weeks. You have to commend LL for still trying to be relevant in the game even after 20 years, but I wonder how younger listeners will respond to an artist that they view as that guy that makes rap songs for the ladies? And furthermore, in a time when gangster music and the south are both in full swing right now, will the listening public want to hear a NY rapper who only spoke of symbolically killing people on the microphone? Hopefully these question will be answered in the weeks to come. Stay tuned for more details on the return of one of hip hop’s true pioneers.
