Bigger and Deffer (1987) is the 2nd album by rapper LL Cool J and is remembered most by containing the first commercially successful "rap ballad," "I Need Love." It also contains the single "Go Cut Creator Go", which pays homage to his DJ and contains an interpolation of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode", and the breakthrough single in the U.K. "I'm Bad". In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source Magazine's 100 Best Rap Albums.

The front cover photograph on the album was taken in front LL's Andrew Jackson High School in Queens[1] , and the back cover was shot in his grandmothers basement where he was living at the time, (both shot by Glen E. Friedman).
