Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow dished on bringing LL back for a fourth consecutive year.
“His unique expertise allows him to set the right tone for the show and connect with everyone—from his musical peers to fans at home.” (Statement)
Aside from this, LL recently talked about working with rap star Eminem.
“Me and Em have a song. He just recently let me hear his verse and it’s crazy. He’s chainsawin’ sh*t. It’s good, it’s good. I think people are gonna be pleasantly surprised when they hear me and him on a record together.” (Rap-Up)
Over the summer, LL said his upcoming G.O.A.T. 2 album would be geared toward having a more street feel.
“People [are] wondering what this album is for and this album is mainly for the n*ggas. It’s gritty. This one is not for the ladies. This album features nothing but real stories, true stories, what I want to do keep it true and embrace the current environment and take it to the next level. I am not trying to sound like I’m from down South and I’m not trying to sound like I’m ’90s New York. It ain’t about how old you are, it’s about how you connect with the people.” (HHV)
