LL Cool J On ‘The Combat Jack Show’


Ill Bomb.

Combat Jack caps off the year with The G.O.A.T., James Todd Smith. He discussed his upcoming album The G.O.A.T 2, family life, and of course, 30 year career. Read a summary below.

We couldn’t end this year right without having the G.O.A.T. on. How he survived an abusive upbringing, studied his craft with early rap pioneers in the same rap dojo with Kool G. Rap, becoming the foundation stone that became Def Jam, building with Queens’ street legends, battling this rapper, that rapper and Jay Z, why he didn’t sign management with Diddy, the “Accidental Racist” thing, flipping burglars in his castle and the victory of seeing his wife survive Cancer, its all here and more. From Hollis to Hollywood, this episode is most certainly blowticious. LL Cool J will forever remain hard as hell. Pause.

    Why do I never listen to these but willingly listen to the hyena podcasts. The annoying-ness of yn really makes you appreciate the combat jack show.

        Go home chicken little.

  • The history on The Combat Jack show should be gotten by any and every Hip Hop head. From beginning to now no one comes close. Maybe Juan Ep because they’ve been at it longer but the Combat Jack show gets ppl to open up a lil more besides the music because the atmosphere seems like a bunch of friends kickin it. Well wit the exception of that Rick Ross episode and even then I did learn somethin new. I’m sure this episode clockin in jus under 2 hours will be rite up there wit the best of em tho. Salute! I wish Dallas Penn came back.

    Besides Combat and Juan Ep, r there any other solid hip hop podcasts that’s worth checking out?

    • Yea there a few more that deserve ur attention. This Week In Hyoe is great and so is the blog, The Cipher (use to be Rap Genius), Shots Fired, The Champs, and oh Ice T got one he jus started. They podcast is becoming increasingly popular for expanding brands so more and more have been popping up. Those are jus a few. If u jus want commentary on pop culture check out Charlamagne’s Brilliant Idiots and Complex’s Desus vs Mero.

    • Keith Eades

      Yes!! All he want to do is get a chance to show the world he can squash Jay-Z, but it will never happen he got a better chance at joining him then beating him!! lol

  • D_nicess1

    • Keith Eades

  • Keith Eades

    Really good interview! Glad he touched on the Over Hyped rap battle between Jigga and himself!! Wished they would have touched on the Canibus battle, the Phenomenon album a bit more because Puff hands was all over that joint and the best track from the album was produced by Erik Sermon(4,3,2,1)!! He;s genuine but you know there is somethings he really want to get off his chest!! lol

  • Dialtone
