"Back Seat (of My Jeep)" is a song by LL Cool J, released as a single on June 1, 1993 for Def Jam Recordings, taken from his fifth album 14 Shots to the Dome. It was produced and written by LL Cool J and QD III. The song samples a drum loop from The Detroit Emeralds 1973 song "You're Getting a Little Too Smart."

"Back Seat (Of My Jeep)" was the most successful single from the critical and commercially disappointing album; it made it to 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 and 24 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs. "Back Seat" was packed along with another single, "Pink Cookies In a Plastic Bag Getting Crushed by Buildings", which charted at a lower position (#96 Pop, #34 R&B).[1]

The song was sampled in Monica's 1995 song "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)."
