LL Cool J is prepping for G.O.A.T. 2, the sequel to his 2000 album. He previously dropped his Mavado-assisted street anthem "The Hustler" and is now back with a gritty collaboration with Raekwon the Chef and Murda Mook called "I'm Nice."
As Rap-Up notes, the Ron Browz-produced track sees LL reminding listeners why he is the greatest.
"Rambo to your jugular / Fuckin' baloney smugglers / Nobody's fuckin' wit' me, tell 'em all come and get me," he spits.
In an interview with VIP Saturdays, he talked about his motivation behind the sequel.
"The whole G.O.A.T. 2 project is so exciting. ...I'm not doing the music for no money. I'm doing it because I love it and because I've been a part of damn near ever era of hip-hop. When I get little kids coming up to me and they don't know I ever made music, then I say, 'Okay I need to do an album' and let them see what it is," he said.
"Generations change and things change," continued. "And rightfully so, there's nothing wrong with that, but when you get to a point where people are like, 'Oh, he makes music? Oh he raps?' For some people that sounds sacrilegious but then there's a generation that don't know. That inspired me. I said, ok then I gotta go ahead and give it to them and show 'em what's what and show 'em the difference. ...It's time for me to give 'em an album. But a real joint that's for the hood that's for the people not like me trying to see how big I can be. But it's more about just being real; it's about the roots, the touching down, touching the ground."
