I counted LL out in the 2000s but Headsprung is still a banger.
There needs to be a drinking game for how many times he licks his lips in a music video. mmm mmm mmm.

i think the way j. cole has approached his new album (not telling anyone about it, randomly surfacing with a new single and release date) is a strong indicator that it's gonna be something special. we'll see come tomorrow, when he drops the new single.

Gonna spend part of today watching behind the scenes of Trapped In The Closet.

it's for the better.

"LL Cool J will release his 13th album on February 12, 2012." you mean 2013??

whoops! it'll take a while to get used to writing 2013, ya feel me?

that new song is tooooooooooo good. very excited for how he follows up sir lucious -- which was a 9+/10 imo.
