LL Cool J song added to radio stations - April
LL Cool J is out to top "the greatest of all time."
The tireless rapper/actor will enter the studio later this month to begin work on the follow-up to "G.O.A.T. Featuring James T. Smith: The Greatest of All Time." The as-yet-untitled album should be in stores in September or October, LL said.
Radio will soon have his new single, "Put Your Hands Up," from Violator the Album: V2.0, a compilation featuring clients of hip-hop management firm Violator.
"It's a crazy party song," LL said of the track, which he recorded with Ruff Ryders producer Swizz Beatz.
"Put Your Hands Up" is one of the album's three initial singles, along with Busta Rhymes' "What It Is Right Now," featuring Kelis, and Noreaga's "Grimey," which were both produced by the Neptunes. The compilation is tentatively due July 10.
LL arrived in movie theaters Wednesday in the comedy "Kingdom Come," about a dysfunctional family gathered together for a funeral. The flick co-stars Whoopi Goldberg, Toni Braxton, Jada Pinkett Smith and Vivica A. Fox. He'll resurface on the big screen in this summer's "Rollerball," a remake of the 1975 action-thriller.
