Mama Said Knock You Out is the fourth studio album by hip-hop artist LL Cool J. The album was released in 1990. Mama Said Knock You Out is also seen as a third classic in LL’s catalog by fans and critics alike. The album spawned four hit singles: “The Boomin’ System,” “Around the Way Girl,” (which sampled clips from the Mary Jane Girls song “All Night Long”), the hard-hitting title track itself (which received special notice after LL Cool J’s dynamic full-live-band performance of it – unusual for rap performers/performances at the time – during an episode of MTV’s Unplugged), and “6 Minutes Of Pleasure.” The diss record “To Da Break Of Dawn” was named number 11 on XXL‘s 20 greatest diss records of all time. The album reached No. 16 in the U.S. charts. The album eventually went 2X Platinum selling over two million copies according to the RIAA.<br>
