LL Cool J had some fun with fans yesterday on Twitter, then reveals he’s back in the studio.
Twitter began to react after seeing a tweet from the G.O.A.T announcing that he was retiring, saying, “Just kidding yall.. I’m not dropping an album… lol focused on my current endeavors.. but that was a hilarious rant… 😀 I had a wonderful music career. Enjoy the classics.”
Everyone took that to mean that he was announcing the end of his career.
Hours later, Cool J assured everyone that he was just playin’.
Today I’m officially coming out of retirement. And starting a new album .. studio time is set for 8pm.. I’m gonna massacre the rap game!!!

Last week a video showed LL Cool J giving a preview of what he may have up sleeve after spiting crazy new bars over an unreleased Dr. Dre beat. Also news has surfaced that L.L. was gearing up to drop a game-changing album.
“I got an itch so crazy right now, I need to find a hydrocortisone connect,” he said. “What I’m going to do is make something for [the fans]. Like a special record that’s really going to be for hip-hop. I get into experimental mode and I get in my creative scientist mode and I like to do different things. Every now and then, I like to do weird s**t*. I’m going to give them something special, you’ll see. And what it’s gonna do is, it’s going to change the game because a lot of people are getting away with 25-point games right now and they need someone to drop 50 on ’em. This s*** is crazy to me!”
