Maybe starring in cheesy TV cop series are getting a bit boring. Or perhaps there’s not enough burglars in this world to beat the living crap out. Whatever the case, LL Cool J has made a return to the mic. For his new single, “Ratchet,” the long-time Def Jam MC fittingly vents his frustrations with those ratchet chicks over an alluring yet somewhat dated beat. Put it this way, a J. Lo feature and placement on Todd Smith wouldn’t sound out of place.

    Nevertheless, you can stream the new track below and download it for free here. LL’s Authentic Hip Hop (whether that’s his 13th studio album or simply a mixtape has yet to be revealed) is on its way.
