LL Cool J - Mama Said Knock You Out

After the failure of Walking with a Panther, LL Cool J was all but counted out as a contender. Coming to his rescue, Marley Marl helped make Mama Said Knock You Out one for the record books. Covering his bases, the title track appealed to tough guys while “Around the Way Girl” had heartthrob appeal for women. Bringing both crowds together, the “Jingling Baby” remix is a classic party jam considered to be amongst LL’s biggest hits. Also notable, LL Cool J became even more respected addressing Kool Moe Dee, MC Hammer, and Ice-T verbally on “To Da Break of Dawn.”
