We gave it a B+

While the title may overstate it, LL Cool J’s ninth album G.O.A.T. Featuring James T. Smith the Greatest of All Time finds the Queens-bred rapper in near top form. Talking trash, passing the mic to guests like DMX and Snoop Dogg, reeling off endlessly inventive boasts — he makes it all seem as easy as chillin’ on the boulevard on a hot summer night. The only downer is the creeping note of defensiveness, as though the old goat (who’s all of 32) felt compelled to convince a new generation he’s still relevant. B+
