Walking with a Panther is the third studio album by American hip-hop artist LL Cool J, released June 9, 1989, on Def Jam Recordings. While his previous album Bigger and Deffer (1987) was produced by The . Posse, Dwayne Simon was the only member left of the group willing to work on Walking with a Panther, as other members, such as Bobby "Bobcat" Erving, wanted a higher pay after realizing how much of a success the previous album had become.

Walking with a Panther. LL Cool J. Released June 9, 1989. Walking with a Panther Tracklist. 1. Droppin Em Lyrics. The album’s first official single was I’m That Type Of Guy (note that Goin' Back To Cali had been released as a single a full year prior to the album and featured on the Less Than Zero film soundtrack). Guy topped the Rap Chart and peaked at on the US pop chart, just one slot lower than I Need Love had reached one year prior. The song also found mainstream success in New Zealand and the UK. Walking With A Panther was immediately successful upon release, peaking at in the US and certified platinum within two months

Released at a time when hip-hop's anxieties about crossover success were at a fever pitch, Walking With a Panther found LL Cool J trying to reinvent his sound while building on the commercial breakthrough of Bigger and Deffer. Even though the album succeeded on both counts, it did so in a way that didn't sit well with hip-hop purists, who began to call LL's credibility into question.

Walking with a Panther is the third studio album by high-selling hip-hop artist LL Cool J. Released in 1989, the album was a commercial success, with several charting singles ("Going Back to Cali," "I'm That Type of Guy," "Jingling Baby," "Big Ole Butt," and "One Shot at Love"). The album however was often criticized by the hip-hop community as being too commercial and materialistic, and for focusing too much on love ballads
