LL Cool J reveals the concept and cover art for his thirteenth studio album, due out next year.
Rapper/actor LL Cool J has announced that he will be releasing his thirteenth studio album Authentic Hip-Hop February 12 2013. So far the veteran emcee has revealed two singles, ‘Ratchet’ a month ago and more recently a Trackmasters produced track featuring Joe, called ‘Take It’.
The Hip-Hop pioneer says that this project is for the real lovers of the genre – those who have been with him from his humble beginnings and that he’s not trying to adapt to what the newbies are bringing out:
“With Authentic Hip-Hop, I wanted to work on a project that was for the true fans,” he says. “I’m not trying to compete with 17-year-olds on the radio, but I am talking directly to the folks who came up with me. We may not be teenagers anymore, but we do still like to have fun.”
LL’s Authentic Hip-Hop will be available to pre-order on iTunes from November 27.
