In this clip from Jay-Z’s Life + Times, Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson answers the question “Are veteran MCs trying too hard?” by evaluating LL Cool J’s “Ratchet”, Fat Joe’s “Instagram That Hoe“, and Eve’s “She Bad Bad”.
A man who tried to rob LL Cool J is now in the hospital after receiving a broken jaw at the hands of the rapper/actor. Mama said knock you out…and she meant it.
The Grammys haven’t had an official host in seven years. But this year they’ve named LL Cool J as this year’s MC. The 54th Grammy Awards will air February 12th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
“I’m thrilled to be part of Music’s Biggest Night. I will always have fond memories of my first Grammys Awards and to now be hosting the Grammy show, in the company of so many other incredible artists, is a dream come true.”
