Ll Cool J Hits Out At Jay-z

LATEST: Rapper LL COOL J has slammed Def Jam President SHAWN 'JAY-Z' CARTER for putting his artists' careers at risk by coming out of retirement. The CONTROL MYSELF hitmaker last month (OCT06) accused Carter of failing to promote his latest album TODD SMITH properly. Now he claims he won't re-sign with Def Jam when his contract expires after one more LP, because it'll mean competing with his label boss. LL Cool J tells MTV, "How am I gonna re-sign with competition? I'm not a 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, B."

Now LL you know I love (every inch of) you baby boy, but I can't back you on this! I get where you're coming from, but overall, well let's just say you're bigger and better than this, k?It really shouldn't matter to you whether J's tryna come back or not; the fact is - as you say - YOU ARE LL COOL J; it doesn't matter who comes out or what stable they come from; unless they're K-Fed they will have a niche market that will or will not impact across the board - it's not something within you're power to control, so why worry about it? In plain terms, said with the utmost love and devotion baby - stop whining! This is NOT the kind of vulnerability that works to your advantage and keeps you hot!
