LL Cool J is known more as a lover than a fighter (except for that one time), but that doesn’t mean the hip-hop veteran can’t get gully when he wants to. On freshly-minted street single The Hustler, Cool James offers a series of gritty lyrical snapshots of life of the block, flowing over a trap-informed beat by Grammy-winning producer Jerry Wonda. Dancehall heavyweight Mavado provides a catchy, yet hard-nosed guest hook. This jam isn’t part of a larger set but, rest assured, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest from LL Cool J as we learn more about his plans.
