    Great HipHop CD with Oldschool Flavor - Exit 13 is HOT!!!

    I am oldschool, and a lot of the hip hop out there today, sucks and is based on "catchy hooks" and one-hit wonders, this CD is nice I like it, but I have been an LL Cool J fan for years. I really enjoy bumping this CD when I am riding. Favorites on the CD "oldschool,new school" "Baby" & "Baby" remix (Rock style); "Cry", "We Rolling"; Mr. President; Rocking with the G.O.A.T. and all the other songs, too! Get this CD you won't be disappointed I wasn't, because the quality is there in every song, beat and LL's flow is awesome....Love this CD, one of my favorites of 2008.

    Call THIS a comeback!

    I haven't heard LL Cool J sound this inspired in a minute. Granted I'm not a huge LL fan, but I have a few of his albums, This is probably one of my favorite albums by him. It mixes up the more aggressive songs with some party songs and love songs, though there's nothing too romantic or sexy here. Cry is probably the one most geared towards the ladies, but that's it. It kicks off nicely with It's Time For War, a banging track that &quot predictably&quot is LL claiming his king-like status in the game and it's all about him making his comeback and returning to form. It's hot nonetheless, though. The following, Old School New School is good. Feel My Heartbeat, I didn't like at first, though now it's grown on me a little. Get Over Here, I think it's called, is LL joined by a couple of young proteges, if that's what you wanna call 'em, over a more South-flavored beat. They flow faster to it and keep it pretty bouncy. That one's hot, too. Baby is a good song, but I think it's started to become a little old and overplayed to me now. The remix was a nice touch, though. Definitely an interesting rock remix of the song. Rockin' With the G.O.A.T. is a good, hard track as is You Better Watch Me. Ringtone Murda is hot, too, with a more street edge. Grandmaster Caz hopped on that one to give LL a hand with the chorus. I don't have time to go through the whole CD, but it's good. I've read customer reviews that say otherwise, but I don't think they gave it a chance. If you're an LL fan, I can't see you not liking this. It's a return to form. LL even said himself that this is the first album he's made in years that he wasn't working on other things on the side. It shows. This is his best album in years.

    Wrong Exit

    Unfortunately for me, LL's new album felt more like a sampler CD of new unusual ideas that he was just throwing around in the studio one restless night. The tracks are a mixed bag of hit or miss songs that may or may not make the hit list, with some fresh old school styled club bangers to some been there done that rehashed sounds. Not a bad last ditch effort for the label he helped launch and put on the map, Def Jam, but not his strongest. I feel his last album, Todd Smith, had an LL Cool J personality and didn't sound like the rest of the run of the mill rap crowed. Exit 13 started off strong but towards the end the week moments like American Girl and Mr. Presindent which didn't quite fit, brought the CD down a notch, with an anti-climactic ending. I'll give it a 31/2, because I like LL's style and delivery, but not in this package.
