Besides releasing his new LP "Exit 13", LL Cool J will treat his fans with another project this year, which is his first ever mixtape called "The Return of the G.O.A.T." The hip-hop artist confirmed that news to the press stating that the mixtape, which he works with DJ Kay Slay, is finished and ready to be released.
The rapper revealed the details about the tape's working process to MTV saying, "Me and Slay was just talking: 'Let's do a mixtape'. Let's knock it out. Let's hit them something hard, something hot, Let's do something for the fellas so they don't feel I'mma oil my chest up, roll around in some feathers with my toenails painted." Moreover, the rapper also mentioned that his upcoming mixtape will feature him freestyling some new beats, exclusive songs, and another rapper's version of his classic songs.
LL also explained to MTV the reason why it took him more than three decades to finally make a mixtape saying, "I do things when I feel it. I'mma do a mixtape for no money, just to show cats how nice I am on the microphone. You have a whole generation of people who think all I ever do is love songs."
Meanwhile, the rapper's new album, which will be his 13th and last record under Def Jam, is planned to hit the stores on July 8. For the upcoming LP's promotion he has just spawned the first single from it titled "I Cry" in late April.
