LL Cool J to release 14th Studio Album!

429 RECORDS LL COOL JCelebrating his 30th year in music (wow, LL’s is getting up there), LL Cool J’s newest album Authentic features LL in his conventional L(ady’s), L(ove), C(ool), J(ames) sensation. Executive produced by the multi-platinum artist himself, this time around LL has returned to jump up the volume and create an album of power that speaks directly to his fans.

“With Authentic, I wanted to work on a project that was for the true fans,” LL says. “I’m not trying to compete with 17-year-olds on the radio, but I am talking directly to the folks who came up with me. We may not be teenagers anymore, but we do still like to have fun.” LL does have a point, real, meaningful music needs a comeback. However  as far as succeeding in album sales goes, does Cool James not know that adults his age rarely buy music anymore- and that teens and young adults make up the largest margin in music sales? On the bright side, even if this album does flop, LL has long made his iconic mark on the music industry.
