LL Cool J Explains Accidental Racist Collaboration With Brad Paisley (Recap)


.
On Friday LL Cool J Explains Accidental Racist Collaboration With Brad Paisley was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) LL Cool J has spent as much time in front of the camera as he has in the recording studio in the last decade, but first and foremost, he's known for dropping some killer verses.

Hosting the Grammys has shown his MC preeminence outside the hip-hop world, but now LL's returning his focus to music. His 13th album, Authentic, finds him working with some of the biggest names in music, across all genres. He previewed some of his collaborators during his GRAMMY performance this year, with Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Travis Barker of Blink-182 and Chuck D of Public Enemy joining him onstage for new song "Whaddup."

Still, there's more to come in the special guest department. Guitar god Eddie Van Halen, country superstar Brad Paisley and funk legend Bootsy Collins will also appear on Authentic, out April 30. "It's not like, 'Oh the country meets the rapper and it's a hoedown!'" LL joked of his song with Paisley, titled "Accidental Racist."

Radio.com spent some quality time with LL and spoke to him about his recent collaborators. On Brad Paisley: "You know, working with Brad was amazing. We did one for his album, which is called 'Accidental Racist,' which I think is very thought provoking and very interesting. It's going to get a lot of attention… and I'll leave it at that 'cause I wanna let him [talk about it]… I don't wanna spoil his thing on his album but we did something that was really cool. The song we did on my record… it's not like I'm trying to do a gimmicky thing. It's not like, 'Oh the country meets the rapper and it's a hoedown!' It's none of that. He's a great singer. I let him sing on something that I felt he would sound cool on… And play the guitar as well because musicianship is a huge part of this record. That's why I also got like Bootsy Collins on this album. I wanted great musicians on my album. Brad was a lot of fun in the studio. He's playing the guitar. I mean, this whole album is like a genre-smashing moment." - Read what he had to say about the other collaborations
