LL COOL J Returns with New Single “Saturday Night Special” Featuring Rick Ross and Fat Joe

LL COOL J Returns with New Single “Saturday Night Special” Featuring Rick Ross and Fat Joe

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and two-time Grammy® Award-winning hip-hop icon LL COOL J triumphantly returns to music with his new single “Saturday Night Special” featuring Rick Ross and Fat Joe. Released via Def Jam Recordings and Virgin Music Group, the track marks LL’s comeback after a decade-long hiatus.

The new single, produced by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Q-Tip, kicks off with an innovative sonic approach. LL COOL J, Rick Ross, and Fat Joe navigate the track with lyrical finesse, depicting life’s harsh realities and intricate dynamics and the code of ethics that governs it. Named after the revolver class “Saturday Night Special,” the song explores key players in the hustle, such as the “greedy killer” who reacts violently to disrespect and the “daredevil type” who seeks attention. Emphasizing self-preservation and strategic interaction, the song’s core message revolves around trust and reciprocity in the hustle.

The minimalist, black-and-white music video, directed by JakeTheShooter with creative direction from HiHat, brings the hustler anthem to life. Shot in Miami, Florida, the video features LL, Fat Joe, and Rick Ross performing together.

“‘Saturday Night Special’ is just the beginning,” LL said. “There’s a lot more where this came from, and I’m hype for y’all to hear this new record. We’re doing this for the fans and for Hip-Hop culture.”

The single is the first release from LL’s highly anticipated 14th studio album, The FORCE (Frequencies of Real Creative Energy), set for release this fall. Executive produced by Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, the album celebrates the 40th anniversary of Def Jam Recordings, the label that first launched LL’s career.

Today In Hip Hop History: Rick Ross Arrested For Marijuana Possession In Atlanta Nine Years Ago

Screenshot 2024 06 10 at 7.02.40 AM

In 2015, “The Bawse” Ricky Rozay was pulled over in his Bentley in metro Atlanta for a window tint violation, but Atlanta Police smelled the odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle and later discovered some weed from inside of the vehicle, resulting in his arrest.

The Maybach Music founder was processed in the Fayette County Jail before he was released on bail later that day, similar to his arrest for marijuana possession just a year earlier in Greensboro, North Carolina for failure to appear in court for another marijuana charge.

Fortunately for Ross, the marijuana laws have loosened up extensively around the country, allowing many misdemeanor marijuana charges to be automatically vacated or offenders have been given dramatically reduced sentences.

Uma Thurman Offers Drake Her ‘Kill Bill’ Suit Amid Rap Beef

uma thurman kill bill vol 3 1024x684

Drake was having a bit of fun with his current beef, highlighting how the numbers aren’t in his favor with disses coming from everywhere.

Hitting Instagram, Drake shared an image of Uma Thurman from Kill Bill with one sword out and aurrounded by many attackers. Seeing the post, Thurman shared an image of the actual yellow suit she wore in the film: She wrote, “@Need this? @Champagnepapi.”

Drake dropped off “Push Ups,” but he says that’s just the tip of the iceberg. In an Instagram conversation with Ernest Baker, Drake says the red button is “not even close” to having been pressed.

You can see the message below.

It’s officially up. Drake has responded to shots fired at him from all angles with the new diss track “Push Ups.” The single heavily targets Kendrick Lamar following the “Like That” diss verse but also takes aim at Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, Future, Rick Ross, and one that nobody saw coming, Ja Morant.

Throughout “Push Ups,” Drake shades Kendrick Lamar over his size and being an “extortion baby” losing 50% of his income to Top Dawg Entertainment. Additionally, Drake calls out being forced to drop verses for Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, and more.

Drake also addresses bars specifically from “Like That”:

“You won’t ever take no chain off of us
How the fuck you big steppin’ with a size seven men’s on?”

and

“Just to have this talk with yo’ ass, I had to hike down
Big difference between Mike then and Mike now
What the fuck is this, a twenty-V-one, nigga?
What’s a prince to a king? He a son, nigga”

From there, Drake turned his attention to The Weeknd:

“Y’all nigga manager was Chubbs lil’ blunt runner
Claim the 6ix, and you boys ain’t even come from it
And when you boys got rich, you had to run from it
Cash blowin’ Abel bread, out here trickin’ (Out here trickin’)
Shit we do for bitches he doin’ for niggas”

He swiftly had a bar for Metro: “Metro, shut your ho ass up and make some drums, nigga”

He even got back into the “Officer Ricky” association to RIck Ross, while jabbing Ja Morant:

“Niggas really got me out here talkin’ like I’m 50, ayy
Niggas really got me out here rappin’ what I’m livin’
I might take your latest girl and cuff her like I’m Ricky
Can’t believe he jumpin’ in, this nigga turnin’ fifty
Every song that made it on the chart, he got from Drizzy
Spend that lil’ check you got and stay up out my business
Worry ’bout whatever goin’ on with you and (Uh)
Ayy, shoutout to the hooper that be bustin’ out the griddy
We know why you mad, nigga, I ain’t even trippin’
All that lil’ heartbroken Twitter shit for bitches”

You can hear all the madness below.

Well, let’s hear her out!

Rick Ross’ former girlfriend has alleged that the “Hustlin’” rapper has been quiet on the set since the sexual misconduct allegations against Diddy because she claims he made cameo appearances in the Bad Boy honcho’s infamous “freak off” party sex tapes .

Tia Kemp, who is also the mother to Ross’ child, took to IG to not only criticize Ross and his fatherhood, but also claims that he participated in Puffy’s rumored sex parties.

“Don’t be scared now! No Diddy. You scared now, huh? I know you on them tapes. Freaky bitch. I know you is. 10 children having muthafucka. I ain’t gonna let off you … What you quiet for?” she snickered.

“Nobody wants to see your Louis [Vuitton] outfits and sneakers, bitch. Nobody don’t don’t care to see the jets no more. You running out of hoes now. Go over there and give Diddy a hug. Go ride the bike with him, you fat bitch.”

Rozay has yet to respond to the allegations or to Kemp and it’s not confirmed as to whether or not Ross appears in any tapes of if these such tapes even exist.
