LL Cool J Weighs In On Jay-Z's 'Magna Carta Holy Grail' Samsung Deal (VIDEO)

Through the years LL Cool J has been vocal in expressing his thoughts on Jay-Z, to an extent where the Queens legend criticized the hip hop mogul’s business dealings during his tenure as Def Jam president.

Since then, the New York titans have gone their separate ways, and both managed to release new projects this year, “Authentic” and “Magna Carta Holy Grail.”

While LL feels Hov’s much publicized Samsung deal is a “a great move for the RIAA [Recording Industry Association of America],” he has a different perspective surrounding all of the new sales rules hoopla.

“It’s not anything different,” he admitted during an interview with Diddy’s Revolt TV. “If Walmart buys a million records, they bought it. The difference is, I don’t know, if I go sell 5 million records to Bill Gates or 10 million records to Bill Gates I guess I’m diamond. I mean, I may not have touched 10 million people but I’m diamond. So numbers is numbers, but I think in the numbers there’s truth, but in terms of touching the people it’s a little different.”
