  • Over the years, hip-hop's reigning king has accomplished much more than the average rapper. With his own book, television sitcom, and, oh, yeah, a stack of platinum-selling albums, LL Cool J is proof-positive that hip-hop can translate to the mainstream with it's integrity intact. PHENOMENON comes 12 years after his debut, and LL still represents the essence of true hip-hop.
  • LL's success is probably due to his ability to cross over without selling out, and to his versatile style. The hard-core rapper that "rocked the bells" in 1986 coexisted with the sensitive smoothie who "needed love" from all the ladies. And in 1997, while LL Cool J makes it "Hot, Hot, Hot" on an incendiary, Puffy-produced track, James Todd Smith tells his story of growing up as an abused child on "Father."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/30/97, pp.65-66) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...The love zone is where L.L. dominates on this album....he holds his own against certifiable heavyweights Busta Rhymes...and Method Man and Redman..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/17/97, p.73) - "...With its happy beats, easy funk bass, and eager R&B melodies, PHENOMENON best recalls the early rap LL grew up on. Think Sugar Hill for the '90s, but with a wholly new kind of role for LL: the rapper who never had a real father here aims to father us all."

- Rating: B+

The Source (12/97, p.179) - 3.5 Mics (out of 5) - "...PHENOMENON is, musically, a safe ride...LL knows just what he has to do to eat off another platinum plate--keep the people dancing to his latest jams..."

Rap Pages (1/98, p.97) - Solid Material - "...Uncle L has managed to maintain his rap authenticity while developing into other areas of the entertainment industry....Not too many rappers can call themselves a phenomenon and actually make you consider the possibility..."
