LL Cool J
A criminal picked the wrong rap legend to mess with!
LL Cool J was the victim of a burglary by a transient who broke into his home in the early hours of Wednesday (Aug. 22) morning. LL, born James Todd Smith, was forced to defend his hearth and engaged in a violent confrontation with the man.
Nicki Minaj has made a habit of outshining fellow rappers since releasing her first mixtape, 'Playtime Is Over,' in 2007. Her impressive prowess on the mic forms the basis for her new Grammy promo with hip-hop legend LL Cool J, who's hosting the ceremony -- but can't quite keep up with Nicki's formidable flow, much to her chagrin.
What do you get when you combine Taylor Swift and LL Cool J? A wonderfully surprising comedic duo! Swift and LL recently teamed up for a series of hilarious Grammy promos -- Swift is nominated for three awards and is scheduled to perform, while LL will host the show. In the clips, the country cutie and old-school rap star trade back-handed comments at one another.
Perhaps you hadn't noticed, but the Grammy Awards have been operating without a host for the last seven years. That's long enough as far as the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences is concerned, and to prove it, they've gone out and enlisted the services of all-world MC LL Cool J, who has spent the last four years hosting the Grammys' live nominations concert show.
It's been a long time since we heard any new material from rap icon LL Cool J. The Grammy Award-winning artist is currently getting his acting on as the star of CBS' hit show 'NCIS: Los Angeles.' As part of Tuesday night's (Nov. 15) episode arc, LL created this rap ballad 'No More' (featuring Ne-Yo) as the soundtrack to his character's storyline.
