Album Review

It's not the tour de force of Mama Said Knock You Out, but 14 Shots to the Dome is a solid effort finding LL Cool J maturing gracefully and strongly, without selling out. 14 Shots may not have sold as well as Mama either, but at least half of the album ranks with his best work.

Customer Reviews

Forget itunes review, this album is dope!

As far as rhymes, this is LL's best album. He kicks some of the coolest, battles rhymes from the East Coast. Production is above average, and the album is easy to listen to front to back. How I'm Comin' was hands down my favorite rap song of '94 and a few years after. It still bangs!!!

The Transformation

It's hard for me to imagine how little this album is remembered by Hip Hop fans. Lyrically, "L" made those who thought it was safe to go after him on wax, think twice about doing so. There are only a handful of emcees that will never lose their street status, while maintaing a corporate appeal. He is in the top 3, without question. Marley Marl doesn't nothing but add to the equation with his production. Cop this is you're a fan of Hip Hop.

He quickly developed an alternate style, a romantic -- and occasionally sappy -- lover's rap epitomized by his mainstream breakthrough single, "I Need Love." LL's first two albums, Radio and Bigger and Deffer,...
