LL Cool J and Kidada Jones dated from 1992 to 1994. In his book I Make My Own Rules, LL said he cared about
and respected her but he broke up with her because of her spirituality beliefs.
“She would go to an ashram, consult a guru, and pray to statues… Before my album 14 Shots to the Dome dropped, Kidada told me she threw some kind of stick into the eternal fire for my album. I was like ‘Yo why did you do that? I didn’t ask you to do that!’ That joint flopped crazily. ‘Oh, well, I’m sorry I cared!’ she said. I had hurt her feelings, but she had hurt me too. I know she meant well, but I just couldn’t get with that. She took me to her guru once and I remember kneeling before this strange young woman who was touching feathers.”
LUV U BETTER was the leading single from LL’s 9th studio album “10”. The song became a massive hit in the US reaching the top 5 of the HOT 100 and topping the US R&B chart (something he hadn’t accomplished before since I NEED LOVE in 1987)
“10” is a masterpiece, one of my favorite records..
