About Bigger and Deffer [Clean]

Bigger and Deffer (abbreviated as BAD on the album cover) is the second studio album by American rapper LL Cool J, released on May 29, 1987 by Def Jam Recordings and Columbia Records. It features the first commercially successful "rap ballad", "I Need Love". It also contains the single "Go Cut Creator Go", which paid homage to his DJ, and the breakthrough single in the UK, "I'm Bad". With over two million copies sold in the United States alone, it stands as one of LL Cool J's biggest career albums. In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums, although it received mixed reviews from other critics. The cover photo was taken in front of Andrew Jackson High School in Queens (which LL Cool J attended before dropping out in the 10th or 11th grade), and the back cover was shot in his grandmother's basement (his residence at the time). Both images were shot by Glen E. Friedman.
