#679 LL Cool J – Mama Said Knock You Out

LL Cool J‘s critical and commercial successful album Mama Said Knock You Out was released in 1990. It was his fourth studio album. I know I will hate this because I hate hip hop and rap. There are a couple of exceptions, but only a couple. I think I have heard a song by LL Cool J before, but it was probably in 1990 or near it. The album was certified double platinum. The New York Times, Jon Pareles wrote that Cool J was “the most articulate of the homeboys”.

Around the Way Girl” is the song I have heard before, but I did not like it then nor do I like it now. It is better than the hip hop artists that I heard recently. It is still better than anything from Will Smith. 5/10.
