#10. LL Cool J, Mama Said Knock You Out (1990)

Label: Def Jam/Columbia/CBS

Game: “That album was crazy. Of course LL was already around but that was like the first classic album of the ’90s. He was beefing with Kool Moe Dee and my whole career is fueled on beef. That was one of the first beefs that I was old enough to understand.

“I was a kid and when I heard that I was like, ‘Fuck Kool Moe Dee. You’re dead.’ I was like 10 years old and I remember putting on my Kangol and wanting to fuck everybody up. Fuck it, I wanted to fight. That album made me want to fuck people up. The craziest part about it was that you could just blame it on your mom like, ‘My mom said to fuck you up.’”
