Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: LL Cool J – I Need Love

LL Cool J I Need Love

I saw via Okayplayer that July 22nd marked the 28 year anniversary of LL Cool J’s I Need Love, so I had to pay respect and feature it on WJSS Weekend Sounds.  Plus, I need love.

I remember when this came out,  thinking how smooth LL was, but I didn’t realize that I Need Love actually gave birth to the rap ballad, allowing LL and many rappers who followed, a chance to shed their hardcore personas for a softer, more romantic side.

No more to be said about this classic song and video which truly reflect the time in which they were made.  You only have to watch and listen.

Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds – LL Cool J: Around The Way Girl

13 May

When I’m thinking of music to post here, I usually want to put up something fun; something energetic.  For that, my mind automatically goes back to the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s–to old school rap, funk and soul.

I was always attracted to LL Cool J’s energy, which ranges from playful, to bold, to sexy.  Around the Way Girl is pure fun, and since I’m tired right now, I want something to dance around to and wake up.

Enjoy!
