God damn this is real life!” A certain hunger and drive are present in the Maryland native's voice. The intensity and the leisurely style that he rhymes with have...

    Last week we questioned the grip of Will.i.am's influence on the mainstream, with his solo effort, #willpower, moving less than 30k opening week. We could also blame this on the ever-waning sales of albums in general. This week, we get LL Cool J's Authentic album as a new entry in Charts Don't Lie. The old school rapper only moved around 13k, and so we gotta ask, what factors played into his...
