Recent years haven’t been entirely kind to James Todd Smith, better known as LL Cool J.

Particularly, many of us would like to forget the firestorm ignited by “Accidental Racist,” his misguided attempt to forge cross-racial harmony with Brad Paisley.

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.

Now he’s dropped “I’m Nice,” with Ron BrowzMurda Mook and Raekwon.
