On Monday, LL Cool J disappointed ladies who love Cool James around the world when he announced his retirement from the rap game. “Today I officially retired from music,” he wrote. “Thank you for the love.” Very soon after, the rap pioneer deleted those tweets, reversed course, deleted that tweet, and announced that he was actually working on a new album. How quickly sands shift on social media!
“Today I’m officially coming out of retirement,” he tweeted. “And starting a new album .. studio time is set for 8pm.. I’m gonna massacre the rap game!!!”

Oh because I've been doing this a long time I can't have fun with this twitter game ? Lol 😆😆😆😆— LLCOOLJ. (@llcoolj) March 15, 2016
Whatever LL has up his sleeve, we’re here for it. Though he’s spent more than a decade padding his resume with other entertainment credits like actor, GRAMMY host, Lip Sync Battle chairman and more, a back-to-basics album will remind us where the multihyphenate started.
