Default 50 Cent Got LL Cool Jís Mojo Back

Quote:


Rap veteran LL Cool J has thanked 50 Cent for helping him "get his mojo back".

The star - real name James Todd Smith III - insists he was shocked when the New York rapper - real name Curtis Jackson - called him up to offer some constructive criticism on 2006 LP Todd Smith.

But LL Cool J remains adamant the advice helped him get back on track - and even inspired him to hire 50 Cent as co-producer on new album Exit 13.

He tells MTV.com, "Itís an incredible feeling. And you know what? I have to give 50 props for that. If a guy calls you on the phone and says, íYou know what? Your last record was kinda slow and this was a little weak.í It was like, íYo, I just thought the record was slow, man, donít mess my LL up.í

"Itís great. I donít mind having a conversation with a guy who seems to have his finger on the pulse and having a conversation with him and talking with him and seeing if he can push me a little bit and get my mojo back.

"I didnít feel I fell off, but I felt I was a little bit out of touch with the things I should be thinking about."

Exit 13 is set for release next year.

LL needs to retire. Nobody is gonna buy his next album except the ladies because he forgot about his male fans who liked his hardcore stuff. He'd rather make gay songs for the ladies.

50 is obviously trying to get him to sign to G-Unit records.

LL has been washed up for years, 50 Cent is FINALLY on a downward spiral and knows it, I am not remotely interested in a new LL Cool J album and having 50 Cent a part of it will make it much worse.

Why should he quit? He ain't got no fucking album that ain't at least gone gold. Good ass formula IMO.

He needs to make his next shit a bit more agressive tho.

LL should quit rapping because his music is lame. I don't care that most of his albums are gold and platinum. His last couple of albums haven't been selling and that's because his music is soft and corny.

His style has always been for the ladies (MOST that is), so saying it's soft and corny is what we'd expect from someone who trys to appeal to ladies more then men.

Your right but at least back in the day, LL had more hard songs than soft songs for the ladies. Nowadays he's doing more soft songs than hard songs and i got a problem with that.
