LL Cool J // Around the Way Girl
The song is about LL searching for a girl who is streetwise.
I think it’s about a lot more than that?
The part about bamboo earrings and a Fendi bag? About meeting LL Cool J halfway? That was basically my entire understanding of what it meant to be “cool.”
…Things you thought it would be cool to be when you were 10, that you spent your whole life in pursuit of becoming, that you have recently realized are doing you no favors in the boyfriend department.
