“The day we cured racism?” he asked her.

Paisley is on LL’s new album, Authentic. He knows that the song isn’t perfect, but he wanted to express love. He wants to eliminate judgements and insert love. He thinks the controversy is a good thing. He said it’s ridiculous to say that he would make light of slavery.

LL said that he wants to “land of the side of love” and “get better” in society. The song is about connecting as human beings. We’re divided by our individuality, but we need to put it aside and come together as a community. He said that if people will stop judging his style and personality then he won’t define himself by slavery and the past. He wants to be an American and a person with faith first.

LL Cool J Authentic Album Review

This new album, Authentic, aims to break the mold of pop and rap. He has assembled Paisley, Snoop Lion, Earth Wind and Fire and more amazing artists to make music. It’s true to him and true to the other artists as well. It’s almost an experiment in breaking down musical barriers. Kudos, LL Cool J.  video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player
