Recent years haven’t been entirely kind to James Todd Smith, better known as LL Cool J.
Well, as they say, no better way forward than through: LL announced a new album this year, G.O.A.T. 2, and has released two tracks off it so far. “Hustler” came out a few weeks ago, featuring a few lively bars and an appealing turn from the “Gully God” Mavado on the chorus.
