Mama Said Knock You Out is the fourth album by American rapper LL Cool J, released in 1990 on Def Jam Recordings. After the critically disappointing Walking with a Panther in 1989, the album was viewed at the time as LL Cool J's comeback album. 

The album peaked at #16 on the Billboard 200. It spawned four hit singles: "The Boomin' System", "Around the Way Girl", "6 Minutes of Pleasure", and the title track. LL Cool J won Best Rap Solo Performance at the 1992 Grammy Awards for the song "Mama Said Knock You Out".
