Classic Album: LL Cool J “Mama Said Knock You Out”

This album takes me back to 1990. I was in middle school and LL Cool J was one of my 2 favorite rap artists at that time. It was him & Big Daddy Kane. So when I saw that Marley Marl was the producer of this album I went crazy! See, Marl produced all of the Juice Crew records that I was a big fan of, so it’ was like my favorite rapper had joined my favorite crew musically. When I heard the Jingling Baby remix that Marl had done I was hoping that he would produce for Cool J and when it happened, I kinda felt like I had something to do with that in some weird telepathic way! Lol. So, here is my classic album of the day. LL Cool J’s Mama Said Knock You Out. Ironically one of my favorite joints on here is Milky Cereal. I was such a nerd. But of course this album is hard. Aaaaahhhhh I miss the 90’s…

  1. I was so close to buying an LL Cool J album last week because He’s got some classic tracks I love. And even his old CD’s were still $17 to $21 I had to pass it over cause sleepy brown and sade was on sale for $1.99 and i went to get that new Ledisi anyways… But LL Goes hard and I will definately be picking up this album right here!
