Over the last 30 years (yep, you read that right…), there has not been an MC who better straddled the line between lover and fighter than LL Cool J. James Todd Smith has been both the rapper that ladies loved with Hip-Hop ballads like “I Need Love” and “Hey Lover,” as well as the MC who took off heads with cuts like “Rock The Bells,” “Jack the Ripper” and “4,3,2,1.” Ahead of his GOAT 2 project, he releases “Know Your Name,” which clearly fits in the loverman lane. Take a listen and weigh in on which LL you prefer.
