LL Cool J had us scared for a minute.
The 48-year-old rapper appeared to announce his retirement from music on Monday, tweeting and then subsequently deleting, "Today I officially retired from music. Thank you for the love."
However, it was all revealed to be a joke, with the NCIS: LA actor tweeting shortly after, "Just kidding yall.. I'm not dropping an album... lol focused on my current endeavors.. but that was a hilarious rant.."
"Today I'm officially coming out of retirement. And starting a new album," he continued. "Studio time is set for 8pm.. I'm gonna massacre the rap game!!!"

LL then boasted the reach on a Facebook post he shared announcing he was in the studio with Dr. Dre, writing, "Numbers don't lie."
"Oh because I've been doing this a long time I can't have fun with this twitter game," the rapper joked in a followup tweet.
