LL Cool J

Exclusive: LL Cool J In The Studio Working On New Music

(AllHipHop News) LL Cool J may have semi-retired after 2008’s album Exit 13, but the Queen’s rapper has by no means put down the microphone.

LL is currently enjoying airplay with the new song “No More,” featuring R&B superstar Ne-Yo.

The track is taken from an episode of CBS’s hit series “NCIS: Los Angeles” which stars LL Cool J.

While LL stopped short of announcing a full-fledged comeback, the pioneering rapper told AllHipHop.com that he is in the studio, recording new material.

“I been doing some music, but I’ve been really focusing on ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ quite frankly,” LL Cool J told AllHipHop.com, before admitting he was actually still recording.

“I did work on some new music, with Ne-Yo. I been working with Jim Jonsin in the studio and doing some music,” LL Cool J told AllHipHop.com. “I got real crazy music, but I’m just taking my time.”

Jim Jonsin is a multiple platinum producer who has churned out hits for a who’s-who in the music industry, ranging from artists like Beyonce Knowles and Lil Wayne, to Pitbull and Eminem.

LL Cool J’s last official full-length release was Exit 13, which was released in 2008.

The album was LL’s final release for the label, after a 20-plus year association.

In related news, LL Cool J will host “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live,” which is taking place November 30.

Announced performers include Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Jason Aldean Rihanna, Sugarland, Ludacris and others.

In addition to serving as host, LL is also producing the one-hour special, which airs on CBS live, from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

      Real Talk is real lame.  

    • THIS NIKKA ISK..LOL..

    • Oh, you critique how men look? LOL….Most straight cats like to critique how women look. Sounds like u HATIN quite hard….Real men know how to turn it on and off. Be hard when you need to be, when the time calls for it and soften up for the ladies. Its a skill that needs to be developed homie and if you judging how men look then we know u don’t have it……

  • Lets see,
    Step one announce comeback. If that generates no buzz then hate on Jay-z to generate buzz. Step three go back to making sit-coms.

    • Either way he is making more $$$$ than you and I together ignorant jit.

    All you simple ass children need to respect your elders, Uncle LL built the foundation of Def Jam, what did you clowns build oh yeah, nothing!

  • I hope he’ll do some more rap. He’s a legend.

  • LL needs a battle , not a commercial one, some hardcore, gritty , mix tape , freestyle type $hyt that he can use to show he’s still got that flow.

    Tracks with Ne-yo, Beyounce & other commercial stars won’t showcase his true skills.
    Good look producing & acting though , probably pays more than rap , so it is what it is….but LL Cool J is still a legend!
