I’ll be honest: I’ve been listening to podcasts more frequently than actual music these days (the Juan Epstein episode with Chris Rock and ?uestlove was gold), so I anticipate this sit-down between Jack and LL to be a good listen as well.
We couldn’t end this year right without having the G.O.A.T. on. How he survived an abusive upbringing, studied his craft with early rap pioneers in the same rap dojo with Kool G. Rap, becoming the foundation stone that became Def Jam, building with Queens’ street legends, battling this rapper, that rapper and JAY Z, why he didn’t sign management with Diddy, the “Accidental Racist” thing, flipping burglars in his castle and the victory of seeing his wife survive cancer, it’s all here and more. From Hollis to Hollywood, this episode is most certainly blowticious. LL Cool J will forever remain hard as hell. Pause.
LL’s G.O.A.T. 2 is coming soon.
