Known as one of the best rap superstars, LL Cool J released his debut album, Radio in 1985. The album was so great it went platinum. Then, he hit us with his 1990 studio album, Mama Said Knock You Out, which is considered one of the best hip-hop albums of all time in my opinion!
If rapping wasn’t enough, he got in front of the camera as an actor. He appeared in the films Any Given Sunday and SWAT. Later, he joined the cast of the CBS series NCIS: Los Angeles in 2009.
In 1995 he married the love of his life, Simone Johnson and together they had four beautiful children together: Samaria, Nina, Italia, and Najee.
LL Cool J has made a name for himself in the rap industry and has stayed relevant through the years. Here is my favorite LL Cool J song. What is yours?
