Because I am suddenly old, I was watching VH1 Classic and the video for “Mama Said Knock You Out” came on. It really got me thinking. Does anybody NOT like L.L. Cool J?
This is not rhetorical.
I freely admit that I both have too much free time and am avoiding things that actually really matter, but I spent quite awhile thinking about this.
I don’t really care much for radio friendly hip hop from the 90s. In fact, I hate most things these days, but I cannot muster up any ill will toward L.L. Cool J. He is talented, attractive, he seems charming and he was the only good part of that movie “Toys”.
I can’t think of anybody that doesn’t like him.
For a few minutes it occurred to me that I might just be in a really good mood. Sometimes when I am extra happy I will put songs in a playlist that I think are great at the time but then when I listen to them the next day I realize that my own Serotonin tricked me into downloading an entire Dramarama album.
No offense to Dramarama, but wow, that one song would have been plenty.
So yeah, I thought I might be giving L.L. too much credit because I am alone in my house for the first time in eight days, but then the video for “Stay” by Shakespeare’s Sister came on and I wanted to spit on my carpet so I knew it couldn’t be that.
Own up people. Is it just me or does everybody like L.L. Cool J?
If you can’t decide this might help.
Yes, I know he says he is going to bomb a town, but I don’t think he really means it.
