No matter what you think of LL Cool J, he has earned his dues, having been around since the mid 80s! You could even say he is part of the reason Hip Hop music has become more popular than Rock in the charts over the past 25 years, but we will skip over that point!
You may be asking why we are here talking about LL Cool J on a rock site, well here is the answer. Guitar legends, Van Halen and Tom Morello will appear on the rappers new album Authentic! Yes thats right, they will appear along side Cool James on tracks Getting Paper and Waddup!
It doesn’t end there, Blink 182‘s Travis Barker will also feature on the album which is due out at the end of April!
Now rock/ rap collaborations are nothing new and they are often not too great… so we will just have to see what this one is like! Lets hope it is as cool as it sounds!
