As reported yesterday, LL Cool J will be hosting this year's 54th Annual Grammy ceremony and while XXL congratulates the hip-hop icon, the staff couldn't help but think one thing; why? Let's be real, as a two-time Grammy winner (one in 1992 and the other in 1997 for "Best Solo Rap Performance"), LL isn't exactly the most relevant choice.
The funny thing is, some of Cool James' competition in those categories back in the '90s, might have actually been better candidates, or at least more entertaining. XXLMag.com got the names of those prior nominees and envisioned what it would have been like if they hosted this year's event. That's right folks, the possibilities are endless. —XXL Staff (@XXLStaff)
