LL Cool J has teamed up with 50 Cent for his upcoming album. New York rapper LL, real name James Smith III, has written an entire album worth of tunes with Fiddy, and plans to showcase a handful of them on his latest album, Exit 13. Speaking to All Hip Hop, LL revealed: "I did a whole album with 50, I did an album by myself, then I went and did another album by myself. "I decided to use like two or three songs from the album I did with 50, one from the second album I did by myself, and the rest is all new material." The Mama Said Knock You Out rapper also told how 50's work ethic had inspired him, but that fans should not expect him to try to "out-gangsta" the In Da Club star. He explained: "Watching him work made me hungry again, but it was also important for me to come out with an LL Cool J album that doesn't sound like I'm trying to be 50 Cent. I'm not doing that." Orange asked Polydor, 50 Cent's UK record label, for comment but they could not respond in time for this story's publication. LL Cool J's 13th album, Exit 13, is set for release on August 26.
