LL Cool J - Live In Maine, 1985

Posted by on Fri, Jan 25, 2013 at 3:15 PM

Watch a 17-year old James Todd Smith rock Colby College in Waterville, ME, with his DJ Cut Creator; this was 1985, the same year as his scene-stealing appearance in Krush Groove, the same year of his platinum smash debut Radio. As LL raps, struts, beatboxes and speils, the crowd seems mostly unsure of what the hell is happening.

27 years later, many rap shows are just like this.
