LL Cool J appears to be gearing up for a return to making music after announcing a brief–actually only lasting a few hours–retirement on Twitter. The now recanted and deleted retirement announcement followed a long series of tweets–also deleted–that pushed back against the idea that he was too old to make music.
A few days ago, LL joined up with Dr. Dre in the studio to drop a new verse, leaving many hip-hop fans curious about whether new music from the legendary emcee was on the way. He sounded hungry and motivated, as his now deleted Twitter rant expressed. And it appears he’s been feeling this way for a while.
A couple of weeks ago, the rapper and actor let off another series of tweets that were aimed at an unnamed detractor.
