James Smith – better known as LL Cool J – has been a hip hop success since the mid-80s. LL’s music is diverse – from hard hitting rap like "Mama Said Knock You Out" to smooth R&B ballads like "Hey Lover" – which is why he’s often considered a hip hop pioneer. Along with his 13 studio albums, LL Cool J stays busy with his acting career, starring on NCIS: Los Angeles.
