Trivia / LL Cool J

  • Career Resurrection: Even if he insists he's been here for years, Mama Said Knock You Out definitely restored his credibility with people after Bigger and Deffer and Walkin' With a Panther saw him be accused of "selling out" and watering down his image.
  • What Could Have Been: Serious Effect, a New Jack Swing track LL had recorded with Michael Jackson for the album Dangerous in 1991. Due to said album running nearly 80 minutes with 14 full tracks, Mike ended up shelving the song for special edition releases in 1993 and 2001, only for the song to get shelved indefinetly (the first time due to Jackson's child molestation allegations, the second due to both growing tensions between Jackson and Sony, and Def Jam vetoing the release of the song).
