L.L. Cool J: Walking With a Panther (1989)

ll cool j panther

By Scott Goldfine

L.L. Cool J, one of rap music’s biggest stars, yields 18 tunes on “Walking With a Panther.” The rapper’s trademark braggadocio, articulate delivery and humor are all abundant on this LP.

However, this is his first release in two years — an eternity in the rap field. Consequently, he isn’t the trailblazer he once was.

Still, the single, “I’m That Type of Guy,” is irresistible.
