With his rather unfortunate comeback single Ratchet raising a lot of eyebrows, hip-hop legend LL Cool J had a lot to prove with whatever was to follow, which ended up being the Joe assisted Take It. Luckily for him though, it was more than enough to get the stamp of approval from the majority of his various generations of fans and with the release of his 13th studio album drawing closer and closer, he’s unveiled the single’s official music video to give it an extra push towards the charts. The strippers, cars and alcohol are all a a bit cliche and now at the ripe old age of 44, a bit more class might but appreciated but it’s still one of the smoothest rap songs of 2012 and after all, the ladies do still love Cool James, so he is forgiven!
LL Cool J’s 13th album Authentic Hip-Hop drops February 12th, with the only other collaboration being with Monica.
