Rapper/Actor LL Cool J is one of those old school music artists that feels they have a right to speak on the current state of Hip Hop…and he’s more than qualified to do so.
According to Revolt TV LL Cool J had this to say in regards to Jay-Z selling 1 million albums to Samsung before Magna Carta Holy Grail even dropped.
“Numbers are Numbers. In the numbers is truth, but in terms of touching the people it’s a little different. For me as an artist I still want to be able to touch the people individually. It still matters to me that people individually went out and bought my record. Although I still think a million sold is a million sold, but for me I like to know that a million PEOPLE bought my record, not a company bought a million copies of my record.” View video here
LL we get what you’re saying, but you already know everyone went out and bought Jay-Z’s album or downloaded it. Regardless he’s selling records, touching people through his music, and making a lot of money. LL knows damn well if Samsung offered him a deal like that he would jump on it quick fast….like he did when he hosted the Grammy’s 2 years in a row.
