Video: LL Cool J Live In 1985

Amazing footage of Ladies Love Cool James rocking a school gym. “Mommy, what’s a super sperm?”

Youtube user Kodiak Starr writes: “LL Cool J at age 17 and DJ Cut Creator perform live. 1985, Colby College, Waterville Maine. 5 months before Radio was released. My dad tried to get RUN DMC, but could not afford them, so Def Jam told him he should bring up LL Cool J”.

You can also catch a painful rendition of “Memories” at the 19 minute mark.
