Just days after the debut of rapper LL Cool J's collection for mall store Sears, the lot of it is already 40% off. Fubu this isn't, as the majority of the denim and tees seem to the be of Wal-Mart-standard variety, covered with with crosses or fleur-de-lis designs. While Sears won't be seeing the sales spike they expected, at least LL slipped a little something for himself into the deal: his new album, Exit 13, gets just as much exposure as the $35 studded jeans.
