808's started shaking up floors ("It's Yours")
With T La Rock's complex metaphors
("T-L-A R-O-C-K")
A primary influence on LL Cool J

from Edan – Fumbling Over Words That Rhyme Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

T La Rock’s “It’s Yours,” while not a proper release, was the first record with a Def Jam logo. The bass-heavy production style of Rick Rubin (which would go on to become a signature of early Def Jam) and the scientific rhyme style of T La Rock were an obvious influence on LL.
