Rapper/actor LL Cool J has had a tough week. At the top of the week, LL Cool J dropped a song with country singer Brad Paisley called “Accidental Racist.” The song sparked outrage in both the worlds of country and hip-hop. Last night, LL Cool J was a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and tried to explain the intent behind the controversial track.
Jay Leno didn’t waste any time inquiring about “Accidental Racist” and LL openly admitted the song wasn’t perfect but felt it served its purpose by starting a conversation about race relations in America. Uncle L said he would never ever try to negate the significance of slavery, but there was no possible way to fit 400 years of slavery into a three or four minute song.Apparently, LL Cool J and Brad paisley believe songs like this should be made to help us unload the baggage of slavery and come together as a nation. While their ideas were well-intended, maybe they should’ve executed it in a different way. Check out LL Cool J’s explanation below.
