If you long for the days when hardcore rappers rapped about being late for school or forgetting to do their homework, then this is the rap record for you, foolz! Yep, yep, LL pulls out all the stops on this late '80's-era classic. Beat box is invented on "Bigger and Deffer," as is "street flowin'". There's even a softcore ballad called "I Need Love," where tender LL finally decides he needs to settle down with four chicks instead of the usual seven! Too rad!! That song brings tears to my eyes every time.
Elsewhere, cool LL raps about usin' a pick instead of messin' with a comb, chewin' on yogurt instead of eatin' less healthy ice cream, and upgrading to his new IBM processor rather than puttin' pen to paper, which is how he wrote the lyrics to the less successful and rather bland album "Radio." Kinda reminds me of why I bought my Frogger watch back in the day, so I wouldn't have to waste quarters in the regular arcade game.
NO RAPPER CAN RAP QUITE LIKE I CAN, I TAKE A...
KEEP IT ROLLIN'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
