LL hates j.


i get the logic but the people got the music,thats the most important thing...and the best way for an artist to know if he "touched the people" is to go on tour
And thats what hes doing

FYI :the best fans dont always buy music ,some of u cheap mofos havent bought an album in the last 10 years

“We've seen people like LL Cool J have longevity and we respect the heritage of what he's done but it's not like right now he's competing on the same level as Lil' Wayne so for me to still be able to compete at that level at my age, that's rarefied air, it's never been done.”

So LL thinks that people arent listening to the album?
LL is simply saying that it'd matter more to him to know that 1 million people felt loyal enough to buy an album vs. selling it to a company. Listening to it is a given; people can do that via free download. Hell of a power move by Hov, but I see nothing wrong with LL's comments.

My thing is, I don't think that LL is salty at least not in this case cause its been known that he and Hov never were cool even before the Def Jam prez deal, but the thing is that people are not grasping the fact that regardless if Samsung bought copies of the album, there were still a million people who went and downloaded the app to download the album, so whether directly or indirectly, a million copies of the album were moved, Samsung was simply the digital vendor. It would have been no different than if a million people themselves went to Target or Best Buy and physically bought the album.

exactly.

n*gga did sound salty. better believe 1million people have heard the album.

he's doing 500k+ not including the samsung deal. more than a million people downloaded the app.

the landscape in music now calls for new business innovations. but how can you expect a guy who signed his life away in a 13 album deal to really comprehend that.
The bolded part

LL has to realize that it's not 1997 anymore, the last time he even had a platinum album. One of the reasons why he isn't relevant in hip-hop anymore, because he doesn't want to think outside the box.

^^^THIS. These days if you do or say anything other than stand and applaud someone, you're a disrespectful hater... LL only pointed out an obvious truth. This snippet is a perfect example of why he's one of the last few Hip-Hop artists I look at as a role model!

True its not the same but its still a good marketing scheme. That's 1mill u can give away to anyone who CHOOSES to download it,so its still touching the ppl as LL states. Imo its no diff then ppl buying albums online,it jus so happens the first mill is free. Plus I don't doubt Jay will sell a mill in stores,hell he's halfway there. But LL did make sum good points without hating

Man gtfoh

Jay sold his soul and d!ck rode his way to the top, sh*t and he still is a d!ck rider

The opposite what LL did
My argument is about Jay's business model and him finding ways to increase his brand, I wasn't even talking about the particulars of how both theses dudes are viewed coming up in game, in the opinions of outsiders, like yourself and me. And what's the love affiair with LL all of sudden on here? If I'm not mistaken wasn't dudes on here were calling LL a sellout as well? Thing is I respect LL as pioneer and think he is one of the goats of hip-hop...but his way of thinking is archaic.

LL is right, selling 1 million records to samsung is different from 1 million fan buying it.
Yah he's right but for the folks that's saying he's salty/hating b/c of past issues need to give that sh*t a break. From what I saw LL was speaking truth. The rap game is so small now that only a handful of mainstream artists is making any serious money. LL made all his money when the rap game was HOT! Now he making that TV/Movie money so he ain't hurting at all.

Be a sh*tty actor, and shut the fu*k up. Weakest fu*king legend in hip hop when you look at his catalog: LL Cool J. fu*k whatever argument he's trying to make, this bum should stick to being on bad tv shows I don't wanna watch, and let hip hop be a distant memory.
