Ol’ Skool Sunday: Around the Way Days

Happy Birthday, Mr. Smith! The rapper/actor celebrated his 44th bornday on Jan. 14. This Ol’ Skool Sunday is a brief commemoration of his musical contributions to hip hop and pop culture.

One thing i’ve always admired about L.L. Cool J was that even though he was widely known as a battle rapper, he also made songs like “I Need Love,” which expresses emotion and affection for his muse. Along with his tracks “Radio” and “Rock The Bells,” Uncle L was able to develop a well-rounded persona, which he used to branch out into other art forms.

Of course, there are several other great L.L. Cool J tracks that are now hip hop classics. What are some of your favorites? These are some of mine:

“I Need Love”

“Radio”

“Rock the Bells”
