6. Loungin’ f/ Total (remix) (1996)
Uncle L released a lot of memorable singles from his Mr. Smith album, the last to be added to that list was his track “Loungin’”. Trackmasters remixed the track which featured Total. The single sampled Al B. Sure!’s “Nite and Day” and had LL loungin’ about at the top of the Billboard charts.
5. Ill Bomb f/ Funkmaster Flex and Big Kap (2000)
First appearing on Funkmaster Flex and Big Kap’s “The Tunnel” compilation, LL also released it as a bonus track on his eighth studio album G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time). But don’t let that fool you. It remains one of the strongest songs in LL’s catalog. The DJ Scratch produced song sampled David Porter’s “I’m Afraid The Masquerade Is Over” and was another reminder that LL Cool J was just as comfortable in the grimy clubs as the red carpets of Hollywood.
4. Rock The Bells (1986)
The original version of this song was 7 minutes and 11 seconds of every kind of bell Rick Rubin could get his hands on. This resulted in the released version not having a single bell heard throughout the track. It was the third single off of his Radio album in 1986 and would ultimately become an iconic Hip-Hop classic.
