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.
Veteran rapper LL Cool J received the prestigious I Am Hip-Hop Award during the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards telecast. The Queens, N.Y. native was recognized for his long-standing career in rap. Beginning with his 1985 hits 'I Can't Live Without My Radio' and 'Rock the Bells,' LL has been rocking the mic for nearly three decades.
