Staying on this tip I started last week, that we may be frozen in 1986 musically and not know it, here’s a clip of a new song with LL Cool J collaborating with Eddie Van Halen. It’s worth it if only for the line “I still wanna know why the Pope resigned.”
Is LL conspiratorial or did the rhyme just fit. You never know with rappers. The clip and more funny lines lie within…
Earlier this month, EDDIE VAN HALEN and LL COOL J teased some sort of collaboration on Twitter . . . and now, a 90-second clip of it has hit the Internet.
The track is called “We’re the Greatest”, and it’s off LL’s upcoming album, “Authentic”, which comes out on April 30th.
Not only does it feature Eddie on guitar, but LL also name-checks him in the lyrics. He raps, quote, “I got Van Halen, I don’t need a bass line / I knew we could do it, it was just a matter of time.”
Later in the clip, LL adds, quote, “Eddie got Frankenstein aimed at your jaw!”
According to the Internet, Eddie appears on TWO songs on the album . . . however, there aren’t any details on the second track yet. LL’s other guests include: Chuck D, Snoop Dogg, Tom Morello, Brad Paisley and Travis Barker.
