LL Cool J ft. 50 Cent, Mobb Deep, Kool G Rap & Tony Yayo - Queens

DJBooth_logo2x

After falling behind Def Jam roster mates Ne-Yo, Rihanna and Young Jeezy on Jay-Z's priority list, LL Cool J got mad. On the new track, Queens, which features fellow New York natives 50 Cent, Mobb Deep, Kool G Rap and Tony Yayo, he seems to think he's getting even. Discussing his love for the 'old days' when Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin were the big dogs at IDJ, LL takes shots at Jay's administration and his professionalism. What may get lost on listeners however, is that despite Mr. James direct remarks, the track features high quality performances from both 50 Cent (think Power of the Dollar days) and Tony Yayo (yes, the only Tony Yayo you know.)
