Looks like the G.O.A.T is back! You can say what you want about the legendary MC LL Cool J, he taught most of our favorite rappers today how to rap. I know, that I personally was rapping “Mama Said Knock You Out” as a 4 year old. Today Uncle L took to the internet to release the album art as well as the tracklisting for his new project entitled ‘Authentic’. The album is projected to release April 30, so be on the look out for that. This summer is going to be hot. Furthermore, LL summons the talents of some of music’s prime possessions including Chuck D, Earth, Wind & Fire, Seal, Monica, Snoop Dogg, Charlie Wilson, and Fitz and the Tantrums. LL will be hitting the road this spring with Ice Cube, Public Enemy, and De La Soul for the Kings Of The Mic Tour.
