LL Cool J Addresses Drake Comparisons: We Are Very Different Artists

Hip Hop legend LL Cool J recently opened up to the Drake comparisons he says he's been receiving over the years --but he says they are very different artists.

"I put that love, and that female, that vibe in there that gives dudes a lane," LL Cool J told Complex. "People compare me to Drake all the time, but we're very different artists because I have a lot of hard records. I'm very diverse, but in that aspect of my career, it paved the way for guys like that, which I'm happy for. I like a lot of his music too."

He also spoke on a few other artists he music has helped paved the way for.

"I'm glad that it created a genre. I'm glad that now years later a Fabolous can go out and do his thing and still be very well respected as a lyricist," LL said. "A Jadakiss can do his love song and still be well respected as a lyricist."
