We met in 1987. I was 9 years old when it infiltrated my soul. I remember my parents throwing big parties in our North Dakota, doublewide trailer. Yeah, I'm a TPK, f#@* you! I remember hearing the song that kicked it off for me. This song came to define my swagger, my being, my entire persona. When LL Cool J released his second album, Bigger and Deffer; my life forever changed. I'm Bad became my theme song. I played that tape (swiped from my dads collection) every chance I got in my brick red Audiovox boom box... the one with the removable speakers.
Watch how he simulates eating the crushed jelly bean. Classic!
