LL Cool J recently spoke to Billboard about the recent freestyle he did with Dr. Dre and the new album he’s been working on. During the interview LL revealed that he’s already recorded a track with Eminem and that he has it in his stash.
“He actually did his vocals and everything. It really happened. I want the overall project to be good. Em is my man and I love him. He’s also a friend of mine, so we’ll definitely get it poppin’. The world has been waiting for that. They’ll get it the right way and it’s gonna be amazing. People should just gear up for this project. Quote me on the things I said about it, and hold me accountable when I deliver it.” LL Cool J told Billboard.
He went on talk about his friendship with Eminem and how Em has always shown him respect.
“It’s funny, I hardly remember it. I just know that meeting Em and talking to him, he’s such a student of hip-hop. He knew all of my music. He called up the radio station singing “Go Cut Creator Go” and that’s a song nobody knows until you’re a diehard LL aficionado. Every time I’ve met Em, he’s had a great spirit. We’ve hung out many times. When I got my [Hollywood] star, he did something cool for me — he bought me a cool ad in a mag. He’s always given me love. I respect and appreciate what he’s done in his career. It always made me feel good to see somebody that I inspired take it to that level. These are the kinds of people that, at one time in their lives, saw me on TV and they were rapping along then went on to have such a illustrious career. I love Em and look forward to including him in this next project.” LL Cool J added.
LL Cool J said that his new album will be more in the spirit of the recent freestyle he did with Dr. Dre.
