In Hip Hop History Today “LL Cool J released Phenomenon” October 14, 1997
Phenomenon is the seventh studio album by rapper LL Cool J. After the success of his previous release Mr. Smith, the same basic principles are followed here, with several R&B-influenced tracks, and a couple of more hardcore Rap tracks. The album was certified Platinum, unlike Mr. Smith, which was certified 2x Platinum. The album is executively produced by Sean “Puffy” Combs and therefore features production from his in-house roster of producers The Hitmen. Listen to Phenomenon above.
