Don’t call it a comeback. LL Cool J returns to the streets in the gritty video for his Jerry Wonda-produced single “The Hustler.” The hip-hop pioneer teams with the Gully Gad Mavado in the Benny Boom-directed clip, which was filmed in his old neighborhood of Queens.
LL is readying his new album G.O.A.T. 2 with appearances from Raekwon and Murda Mook.
“This album is hard. 85% of is just knockin’ beats. And current. We’re not trying to put our ’95 high school rings on,” he told Fuse.
Watch his triumphant homecoming below.
