9 December 2013 – LL Cool J – Mama Said Knock You Out – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

Don’t call it a comeback.

But, for reals, it was part of a comeback – more on that in a minute.  LL Cool J had dropped out of sight for years.  Gangsta rap was dominating the scene.  And LL was being dissed – DISSED – by other artists.    So, he did what any big hip hop star would do.

He whined to his grandma.

Who told him to “knock out” his critics and dissers.

So he wrote this and proceeded to dis Kool Moe Dee.  “How you like me now?!”

This was by no means LL Cool J’s biggest hit – it actually was the single that preceded this one, “Around The Way Girl”, which was the ACTUAL comeback – but it is one of his most bombastic and memorable songs. 

And yes, that’s Grandma at the end, asking Tom to take out the garbage.
