Part 2 of our episode with ADouble:
Discussed in this episode:
- LL Cool J beats up a white intruder in his house in August 2012. http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/ll-cool-won-charged-fight-burglar-los-angeles-home-lapd-article-1.1143000. “Accidental Racist” song gets released in April 2013: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTzRJ3cpTTI. In August 2013 it gets announced “L Cool J won’t be charged in fight with burglar in his Los Angeles home: LAPD” http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/ll-cool-won-charged-fight-burglar-los-angeles-home-lapd-article-1.1143000. So the timeline becomes, (1) he beats this guy up, (2) does this song after, and (3) then it gets revealed later from an LAPD spokesperson that he was still facing the possibility of charges at the time he did the song.
