This is Platinum Hip-Hop’s Throwback Thursday pick – LL Cool J
“I’m Bad” (1987)
Platinum Hip-Hop went all the way back to 1987 and found Def Jam artist, LL Cool J’s “I’m Bad”. I’m Bad is the first single from LL Cool J‘s second album, Bigger and Deffer. It released in 1987 for Def Jam Recordings and was produced by the production group, The L.A. Posse and LL Cool J. Russell Simmons was the executive producer of the single. This single was followed by “I Need Love” and “Go Cut Creator Go”.
The song samples the “Theme from S.W.A.T.” by Rhythm Heritage, LL Cool J’s “Rock the Bells”, Federal Signal Corporation’s famous Q2B siren, and an interpolation of the theme song from the 1960s syndicated animated series Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse. (Wikipedia)
