Customer Reviews

Far from classic.

I bought my first LL COOL J album in 1987. I bought BAD from the local tape store. Yeah, TAPE store. Anyhow, after the first play through I had to run back and grab Radio and Panther. LL was a wizard with the mic and only a few could touch him back then (Rakim!). Those were great albums, and it pains me to see people calling this album a classic. After Mr. Smith, LL Cool J sold out and became everything he used to dis. He made stupid Radio friendly music with R&B girls. He mad movies and had a TV show. Now, I don't hate anyone for making money where one can, but this album is far from classic, matter of fact, it isn't even good.

LL Cool J - 'G.O.A.T.' Review

Once again, Cool J as provin' himself the best rapper ever! Okay, so, 'Imagine That' is good. Great sound. Honestly, my favorites were 1-7 (Not including, 'Intro' or 'Skit', but, no one likes those). 'Homicide' is a good song as is 'The G.O.A.T.' but, the rest... Oh, heck, they're all good. But, this is one of the better albums.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Hip-hop is notorious for short-lived careers, but LL Cool J is the inevitable exception that proves the rule. Releasing his first hit, "I Can't Live Without My Radio," in 1985 when he was just 17 years old, LL initially was a hard-hitting, streetwise b-boy with spare beats and ballistic rhymes. 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,...
