LL Cool J also praises ScHoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Ink, Chris Brown and Tyga.
LL Cool J, who released his debut album, Radio, in 1985, says that he is in tune with a newer crop of artists, some of whom he's collaborated with recently.
"I think there's a lot of good music out there," LL Cool J said during an appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show. "I think there are a lot of artists that are doing well. I just did a remix with a great young artists, Kid Ink. Me, Kid Ink, Chris Brown and Tyga. They remind me of me when I first started. I was happy to get on the record and do something. That remix is called 'Main Chick' and it was a lot of fun. There are a lot of great artists out there. You look at ScHoolboy Q, some of the things that Kendrick Lamar's doing, they're good. Kanye West, when he's not complaining. I love you, man, but stop complainin', B."
After laughing, LL Cool J said, "He gon' tear me up...Don't hit me," referring to Kanye West.
In January, Kanye West allegedly assaulted an 18-year-old who reportedly insulted him and his fiancee, Kim Kardashian. West later reached a settlement with the alleged victim. In 2013, West had an altercation with a photographer. In August, it was reported that the Los Angeles County district attorney's office decided not to file felony assault and attempted robbery charges against West.
