      Growing up in Queens, NY during the 80’s and 90’s LL was a legend and inspiration to us… he showed us that nothing is impossible. Sky was the limit if you were willing to grind it out and rise up. A true General of the game and well deserved induction in the R&R HOF. 🙏🙌💪☝️

      Honor and respect…. The same Dre that is a fake studio gangsta. The same one that beats up female journalists. His straight out of Compton propaganda might work on the dumb but everyone in the hip hop world know, Dre was no a tough guy or a gangsta and was afraid of eazy and made the movie to try a ridicule eazy e and make Dre look hard. He’s a joke and 100% know what was planned to bring eazy down. F Uk him

    When I was growing up, LL became an inspiration to me. I loved the confidence he portrayed for everything whether it was music, TV shows, interviews, etc. I emulated his confidence as a adolescent because I didn't believe in myself.

    I never thought the song Hey lover would be my catalyst for a crush, until I started dating.

    🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤 Thank you, LL, for the memories. The most impressive thing I always was in awe of was your lyricism at such a young age. You spit rhymes on your songs as if you were battling EVERYBODY. You were never lazy about having the dopest production, writing your lyrics and delivering them with passion on wax and in concert. I felt you gave me my money’s worth and my time well spent. I have prayed for your continued success and supported your music, movies and shows. I can truly say “I love you, my brother.” Even though I haven’t met you yet. I subscribed instantly so I can check out your latest endeavor “Rock the Bells.” I think you should buy the Troop company and hire me to redesign the clothing and kicks! Ha. Peace god M.C. 🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐

      He's the Motown of rap.. he so deserves this honor . He stayed true to who he was through the years you never heard about him getting in trouble or doing crazy things he always kept his head about him he could rap the phone book.. him and the Beastie boys are both inducted now.. keep in mind too he wasn't just a rapper back in the day he's still coming out with song.. but he just has a voice that's iconic to me. danced through the years to llj, Beastie boys Dre...

    This is what hip-hop is about. Dre is always going to be one of my all-time favorites. He’s all dignity, all class and when I seen that footage of that cop harassing him outside his own home, I wished I was there to educate the officer, I wanted to come to the man’s defense, I was so angered and disgusted in such an unnecessary act of harassment. I would have calmly approached the situation and I would’ve looked right in the cop’s eyes to say “do you realize who this gentleman is? You don’t deserve to be in his presence. It scares me to think you’re a civil servant in law enforcement instead of the post office or social security office because I can only imagine how many innocent men and women you have harassed and assaulted. It is in the constitution clear as day in the government and authorities and the system alike were implemented for the sake of working for us, you officer work for Andre Young just as our 3 branches of government are elected to do the same thing yet I have never once seen a day of justice in my life. Do you want to know who America’s worst nightmare is? It is the overprivileged undisciplined white Sociopathic children of parents who only care about their own legacies and will destroy peoples lives simply because they can’t afford it. I know this because I had that happen to me more times than I can count. This man you were harassing outside his home gate has done more for this planet and humanity in a day than you, your family, and all your ancestors have combined in your entire lineage combined. I know it was like two years ago but it still bothers me.

    Anyway, very thoughtful words, Dre and congratulations LL, I was 8 years old when I heard the words “Don’t call it a comeback…”, a few months later my Twin and I performed it in our school talent show. 🥲

    It’s so ironically perfect that Dre to inducted you the 5th grade I strolled into my classroom singing ‘Automobile’ verbatim, word for word even trying to beat box the piano riff and all. Both these men had a huge influence on my love for hip-hop to this day.

    Just cause you’re bad and you’ve been there and done that don’t 😆does not mean you’re finished yet, not even close, you Gentlemen have a long way to go.

    Thank you both.

    P.S- You know I Love You, Missy!!!

    LL is not given enough recognition. I know you have Big and Pac, and Eminem and Snoop, but LL was that dude set in his own lane. He was alone on his stage. People don't know that him and Jay-Z were upcoming friends back in the day and LL career took off faster than Jay-Z career. Jay-Z went on to take over but LL paved the way for many solo rap artist. He is at the top in my book.

    The first LL song I heard was "Dangerous." It was a Saturday morning in 1985 and I was recording songs off the radio (KTSU, Houston). It was like someone had taken all the best qualities from all the best hip hop songs at the time and concentrated them into one artist. I was seriously afraid that he was going to rhyme every word that could be rhymed and hip-hop would dry up because there were no more rhymes left. In the age of Run-DMC, UTFO, Whodini, etc., LL became my favorite artist after I heard "Dangerous" only one time. 👑

    And, if you didn't like that he was a pretty boy, or that he would do songs with R&B acts, or that he made love songs, that's okay but don't express your dissatisfaction with him on a record because he'll come back with his own song and end your career. If I'm being completely honest, I believe that everything LL does, there's a rapper who does it a little better but NO ONE can do as much as he can do as well as he can do it.

    LL is just what hip hop ought to be like now am looking at how far hip hop has come an LL is my G(he is just simply the great hip hop will ever come to see) an as time moves on day by day I would be better chilling, flexing and loving music and I think my radio would be the best heart 💖 to let his soul rock with me period 😎😎🔥

    Just Wow man! Awesome that Dre was the one to induct. Guys like LL and Dre and many, many others, have laid the very foundation of Hip-Hop. As a Gen X'er, its pretty powerful to see these icons not lose their touch and still have that nostalgic pull for us all.

    I saw LL at jazz fest in new Orleans a few years back. He was doing sound check at like 9 am before the festival gates had opened. With only staff and a few lucky vendors looking on he had the place just rocking. His energy is unsurpassed. I was a fan before this, but he gained me as a lifetime fan that morning. Much love and respect. You are the man.

    Remember listening to 'Mama said knock you out' and I got hooked instantly. His silky rhymes and clear words made it easy for me to love his flow. LL made HipHop so listenable and catchy, chocolate taste...

    You deserve...every OUNCE of it, brother:

    ...I recall, when you'd JUST signed with Def Jam; and, your album was JUST hitting the streets.

    I was born in Washington, D.C.; but, my cousin would come up to N-Y ALL the time; and, he KNEW how much I was in-Love with HIP-HOP, since the late-70s.

    He (my cousin), would bring back to me...ALL of the mixtapes, taped directly FROM the radio (DJ Red Alert Show, and such: "YEAHHHHHHH-hhhhhhhhhhhh...!!*lololz*!!)...

    YOU, sir...???

    Are, a part of my OWN, PERSONAL History, Mr James Todd Smith.

    I am grateful, for your music AND Movements, being a part of my existence.

    Quit stealing all the women's damn hearts, too*lmaooo*...Salute:


    Signed Sincerely Yours,

    Sean The BASTARD! :0)
