Hip-hop icon LL COOL J plays a fun game with Hoda and Jenna on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna
where he answers five questions about his musical preferences, including the first song he memorized, his favorite music video and who is on his Mt. Rushmore of hip-hop.
“In terms of collaborators, would be DMX because I introduced him to the world. Eminem because he’s one of the collaborators on my new record you have not heard that song yet. Method Man because I just love working with him. And then Biggie, because we did Flava In Ya Ear. That’s collaborators, remember! I don’t want to get bunch of tweets and Xs like ‘bla bla bla bla.’ These are my dudes! I love them!” LL said.
LL COOL J has a new album loading, and the release has some heavy hitters. According to LL himself, Eminem, Nas, Fat Joe, Rick Ross, and Saweetie are set to be featured on the album. To make it even crazier, the album is set to be entirely produced by Q-Tip.
It will mark the first ever collaboration between Eminem and LL COOL J. About a month ago, the 10 seconds snippet of the song surfaced online and it appears the two legends of hip-hop are going back and forth, murdering the Q-Tip-produced beat.
