YMMV / LL Cool J

  • Awesome Music: Generally considered to be Radio or Mama Said Knock You Out.
  • Critical Dissonance: Walking With A Panther was understandably roasted by critics (though it was eventually Vindicated by History), but was certified Platinum in 1990, and also had a Gold-certified single ("I'm That Type Of Guy") to boot.
  • First Installment Wins: Radio is probably his most critically acclaimed album. Second is, obviously, Mama.
  • Memetic Badass: If the comments left on YouTube for the video to "Mama Said Knock You Out" are to believed. Those comments came after a burglar broke into LL's house and wound up with a broken nose and jaw.
  • Signature Song: "Mama Said Knock You Out"
