LL Cool J will release his 13th album, Authentic Hip-Hop, on February 12th. Produced by The Trackmasters, who have worked with LL since 1996, the album includes two tracks already available on iTunes: "Ratchet" and "Take It."
LL says he made the album for "true fans" and that he's "not trying to compete with 17-year-olds on the radio." He adds that he's "talking directly to the folks who came up with me. We may not be teenagers anymore, but we do still like to have fun."
Uncle L will co-host the Grammy Nominations Concert Live! -- Countdown to Music's Biggest Night, which airs on CBS on December 5th.
