Twenty-five years after making his debut appearance on “Arsenio,” LL Cool J returned to where it all began. The rap icon-turned-“NCIS” star, who was the first hip-hop artist to appear on late-night TV, co-signed some of today’s stars including Kid Ink, Tyga, and Chris Brown.
“They remind me of me when I first started,” said LL, who appears on the remix to Kid Ink’s “Main Chick.” “So I was happy to get on that song.”
He also acknowledged ScHoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, and Kanye West “when he’s not complaining.”
“I love you man, but you gotta stop complaining,” LL told Yeezus before joking, “Don’t hit me.”
Plus, he spit an impromptu version of his 1987 classic “I Need Love” and explained how Michael Jackson once punked him.
