14 Shots to the Dome

~ Release group by LL Cool J


14 Shots to the Dome is the fifth studio album by American hip-hop artist LL Cool J, released by Def Jam Records in the US on March 30, 1993. It is his first album since the hugely successful Mama Said Knock You Out (1990). Unlike that release, which saw him have success on his own terms, 14 Shots sees LL adopting the sound of his West coast gangsta rap contemporaries, especially that of Ice Cube and Cypress Hill. Many fans saw this as a jarring departure, and the album met mixed critical and commercial response, only being certified Gold by the RIAA. The album spawned two singles, both of which had minimal success on the Billboard charts. The album's lead single, "Back Seat" would later be sampled by R&B artist Monica for her debut single "Don't Take It Personal" which became a major hit two years later.
