LL Cool J believes that the Drake vs. Kendrick Lamar music battle was fantastic.

What LL witnessed between the two stars is amazing.

Kendrick Lamar vs. Drake is more than just a fight. The whole hip-hop media landscape in 2024 has been driven by the back-and-forth between the two superstars. Every famous rapper has appeared on a podcast to provide insight, and every public figure has offered their opinion on who won. One of the only people that remained silent about Drake vs. Lamar during their fight is LL Cool J. But now that everything has calmed down, LL is all praise for both parties.

Recently, Bootleg Kev and LL Cool J had a conversation regarding the war of the decade. The rapper made it clear that he was speaking from the viewpoint of a fan and that he found Drake and Dot’s performance to be quite entertaining. He said, “I thought it was great for hip-hop.” “I felt that was the appropriate course of action. They both performed well, in my opinion, and held their own.” But LL Cool J did declare who he thought was the winner, and it was expected. He said, “I thought Kendrick prevailed.” However, I felt that Drake did not in any way humiliate himself. He very certainly made an appearance.”

LL Cool J Compared The Rappers To LeBron And Steph

LL Cool J is a battle-tested veteran, himself. He’s gone at Canibus and Wyclef Jean among countless others. He was happy to see that competition is still a big part of hip-hop’s appeal. “The key to that stuff is as long it doesn’t distract you from your ultimate goal,” he stated. “It’s a wonderful thing to participate in. I love it, man.” LL took things a step further than comparing Drake and Kendrick Lamar to some of the great rivalries in sports. “This is no different from LeBron and Steph. Jordan, when he was coming in, and Magic was going out. It ain’t no different.”

One rapper who LL has been less thrilled with, lately, is Andre 3000. He recently gave his opinion on Three Stack’s flute album, and told The Shop‘s Lena Waithe that he was disappointed. “I need him to spit,” the rapper noted. “Flutes? Man, come on, bro. His bars is all the way up. I’m very clear. Not the flute, B. Not the flute.” LL Cool J put his money where his mouth was, too. He just dropped the single “Saturday Night Special” with guest appearances from fellow legends Rick Ross and Fat Joe.
