Accidental Racist: LL Cool J and Brad Paisley have joined forces on a country-hip-hop hybrid. Now, whether that appeals or sounds like you're worst nightmare, you've probably heard that it's caused quite a stir for its treatment of race relations in the lyrics. LL is standing by the "bold statement."
