LL to MTV News on leaving DefJam because Jay-Z is boss:
“How am I gonna re-sign with competition? I’m not an idiot. I can’t depend on that man to promote my record while he’s somewhere writing rhymes. I’m LL Cool J. I ain’t doing that.” “I can’t depend on that man to promote my record while he’s somewhere writing rhymes … I’m LL Cool J. I ain’t doing that, B.”
After poor album sales, LL previously blamed Jay for poor promotion of his album and rode on Jay-Z for only being concerned about Jay-Z (himself) while pushing his artists to the backseat.
Some speculate that LL is hating because he was one of the first artist on Defjam and he was passed over for the CEO position for Jay. LL Cool J is a legend but he is washed up, think about stepping your game up old man, a record company or some other business venture, something. That taking off your shirt and licking your lips steez is not working anymore old man. LL went on to say that his next album is going to be more “street”. SMH
