Rap Was Changed Forever When This Record Dropped 25 Years Ago

at 2:00 pm | By

LL Cool J is one of the most consistent MC's in the game, and has been around since hip hop was just taking off in the mid-80's. The rapper has been going hard on the microphone since he signed to Def Jam in 1985, but there were some monumental music moments that still go down in history since then. This past week, LL recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of his critically acclaimed "Mama Said Knock You Out" single being released to the public. This is definitely something we need to acknowledge and celebrate within hip hop as a community.[above1]
