LL Cool J: Respect The Architect

Sometimes you just gotta give it up for LL. Yeah he hasn’t made the most memorable albums in the past 15 years but he is still making music. He gave us Radio, Bigger And Deffer, Walking With A Panther (my fav), Mama Said Knock You Out, 14 Shots To The Dome and Mr. Smith to name a few. Since them he’s sprinkled us with some vintage LL, like “Ill Bomb.”

LL, at age 41, still has it. He doesn’t flex it like he can but if push came to shove LL could definitely retire a rapper of choice should he feel inclined to. While I can’t validate whether or not this is a real album or that LL will even see a dime on it, I can say they are high quality (remastered) tracks of some of his greatest cuts. Even though we all could do without a handful (or even more) of some of them, the great tracks certainly overpower the weak ones. Download this jawn and remember just how vicious LL Cool J was on the mic. Hey Rick Rubin if you’re reading this why not hit up James Todd Smith and do another album together? Go out on the right note. –Philaflava
