Very loosely related to Mother's Day Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Mama Said Knock You Out" by L.L. Cool J

Other than having the word "mama" in the title, this song really has no connection to Mother's Day whatsoever.  But, it was one of the first rap hits I ever remember hearing on mainstream pop radio.  When L.L. Cool J made "Mama Said Knock You Out" back in 1990, do you think he expected to be hanging out on a network cop show with Chris O'Donnell two decades later?

My lasting image of L.L. will probably always be the chef with a parrot on his should from that ridiculous movie about a super intelligent shark, Deep Blue Sea.  A quick google search revealed Mr. Cool J also made a music video to go with the 1999 film, something I'm guessing he's not too proud of:

Also, his real name is James Smith.
