4. LL Cool J Releases "Accidental Racist" With Country Singer Brad Paisley
Fail Occurred: 4/8/2013
No one's questioning LL Cool J's legacy, especially after comfortably situating himself as one of the best rappers ever. However, his embarrassing inclusion on "Accidental Racist" is a setback that even the Queens MC can't justify. The record starts out innocent enough, with country singer Brad Paisley pandering to his wholesome audience over serene guitar strums. Unbeknownst to the listener, LL bursts in around the four-minute mark with, "Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood/What the world is really like when you're living in the hood." Yikes. Topping off the performance with lines like, "If you don't judge my gold chains/I'll forget the iron chains" and "Feel like a new fangled Django, dodging invisible white hoods," makes this a series of hip-hop quotables for all the wrong reasons.
