I was flipping through the channels last night when I came across the new NCIS with LL Cool J playing one of the agents… so I let it be… I’ve been an LL fan since I saw the movie Krush groove back when I was still not in high school and LL needed a radio inside his hand… I’ve seen that movie on betamax so many times, I memorized all the songs.
But this is not what I am writing about. See I came across the scene where they bust into an apartment, no one is there, then LL looks at a computer screen with what looks like an Arabic website, it was too fast to determine for a native Arabic speaker non the less those who do not know… and he determined it was a jehadi website.
Next thing I know, they are running after this guy, catch him, punch him, he puts his hand in his “man bag” they tell him no… LL starts reciting a verse from the Quran to show the terrorist he understands and “this is not the way of Allah” but then the terrorist clicks something inside his bag… and they start running and boom.
My wife, was not looking at that moment, asked me what language was that? she is also a native Arabic speaker… I told her that’s something like gangsta Arabic or maybe it was Arabonics since LL is not a gangsta… LL, sorry, but your pronunciation needs to be worked on… good effort though., it is way better than George Clooney’s Arabic in Syriana (which was a good movie IMHO)
The good thing is, they are now showing the good with the bad in Hollywood, I am not sure what and how much sticks in peoples minds.
Here is LL talking about the show (link)
