button.gif (123 bytes) "Rap was empowering, it gave me the opportunity to experience power 'cause I was helpless living in an abusive home. Rap provided an escape; it was the first time I heard people articulating things I could relate to, and that I wanted to say." - LL Cool J, 1997

 
TIMELINE

L.L. Cool J button.gif (123 bytes) LL Cool J (James Todd Smith) was born on January 14, 1968, and raised by his grandparents in Queens, NY. His stage name stands for "Ladies Love Cool James." LL became the first rap artist to have 6 consecutive million-selling LPs. His career image has seen him transcend from streetwise rapper, to sitcom actor, and back to streetwise rapper. What separates LL from other rappers today (besides longevity) is his ability to rap about life's highs and lows without continuous intense and offensive language. By doing this, LL has achieved more admiration, and in turn, credibility, than many of his fellow rap artists.

1984...

L.L. Cool J - "I Need Love" (Single)button.gif (123 bytes) LL had a hit with Def Jam Records called "I Need A Beat" at the age of 16. The success of the 12" track convinced LL to drop out of high school and work on his first LP.

1985...

L.L. Cool J - Radiobutton.gif (123 bytes) LL released his debut LP, Radio. The LP was later ranked # 69 in Rolling Stones "100 Best LPs of the Eighties."

I Make My Own Rules. Two versions of the book were available: a clean version, and the "dirty truth" version. LL told MTV "...the reason I wanted to be so truthful and so frank in my book is because I feel you can't really help the young people and help the kids, unless you show them where you made mistakes and then corrected them," LL said. "If you just talk about all the good things happening in your life, the bridge becomes invisible, because they don't know how to obtain those things without going through the troubled times. So for me this book is a real thing, and my album complements it, because my album is actually a soundtrack to the book."
