Mr. Smith is the sixth album by rapper LL Cool J, released in 1995. After the commercially disappointing 14 Shots to the Dome, it was a bit of a comeback for the artist, going 2x Platinum and spawning the hits "Hey Lover", "Doin' It", and "Loungin'". Unlike his previous release, which focused on hardcore rap, this album sees LL concentrating on the ballads for which he is now famous.
