Artist Bio
Hordes of hopeful contenders have claimed to be it. Rabid rap fans will debate and argue about it from sundown to da break of dawn. But in the world of hiphop what does it truly take to be The Greatest Of All Time? Lyrics. Charisma. Personality. Versatility. Longevity. A command of the studio as well as the stage. The ability to conquer any and all obstacles from a brash newcomer or wily veteran picking a rhyme fight to the changing tastes of a fickle rap audience and emerge stronger than ever. As many living legends as hip hop has produced within its 20 years of recorded history, only one artist can honestly count all of these qualifications amongst his arsenal of talents: LL Cool J. From the moment a teenaged "young legend in leather" named James Todd Smith exclaimed "I Need A Beat" to the world in 1984 as Def Jam Records' Flagship artist, LL Cool J has blazed an unprecedented legacy of achievements. A two-time Grammy Award winner, respected television and feature film actor, author, humanitarian and devoted family man, he has never gone less than gold on any of his eight album projects. The St. Albans, Queens native is also the first rap artist to amass six consecutive platinum-plus selling albums and six gold singles. Now, with his ninth effort, G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time), LL officially and rightfully assumes the title that has eluded all others.

Review ...With eight albums under his belt, LL is arguably the best MC to ever touch the mike. With his latest offering, G.O.A.T., LL attempts to end the argument--and he makes a pretty good case... this is no stroll down memory lane... LL...seems to have regained the fire that was sorely missing from his previous release, Phenomenon.

Review ...LL has been rocking the bells since his 1985 debut, which is a century in rap years... and G.O.A.T. glows with the heat of his rhymes. G.O.A.T. highlights LL's greatest talent: to be everything to everybody. A freaky hybrid of bad boy and good guy, LL is as hard as any gangsta but can also be cuddly and sincere. And he's got showmanship to spare.
