Classic Beats review: LL Cool J: Luv U Better

This is one of my faves from this great Hip hop artist : the year is 2002 but the mood/sound is still very 90s, in my personal view. Produced by The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo) , it features additional vocals from Marc Dorsey, and a sample of Notorious B.I.G.

All the track is super smooth, with a nice Soul guitar that plays a small lick, almost all thru the song. Plus there’s this strange “plucked” instruments that play only 2 notes.
A tight bassline goes and stops with the beat, creating a feeling of contrast with the totally melodic pads (very effected probably with flangers, phasers or similar )

The chorus sang by Marc Dorsey is really melodic and smooth, too
Drum sounds are very minimal with a round kick and nice claps (and a tambourine/shaker

Great production, very old school
