Two-time Grammy®-winning recording artist LL COOL J steps back to the mic with the release his 14th album "Authentic." The legendary rapper returned to the studio and kicked the volume up to create a powerful album that would speak to his fans. "Authentic" features the iconic rapper in his element anchored by LL’s expressive attitude where his sensitive side is as present as his slicing lyrical switchblades. The album comes to life with crazy club jams, tender tracks, personal tributes, and hard-hitting commentary addressing the current hip-hop climate. First introduced to the world in 1984 as a Def Jam Records flagship artist, LL is the first rap artist to amass ten consecutive platinum-plus selling albums. A two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee, the veteran rapper has evolved his scope of work across entertainment, including currently staring on the hit CBS drama "NCIS: Los Angeles."
