LL Cool J
Get down and dirty with a profile of one of hip-hop's pioneers -- LL Cool J, aka "Ladies Love Cool James", or James Todd Smith. He's one of the few hip-hop stars of his era to sustain a successful recording career for more than a decade and recently dropped his 12th album. LL not only has proven talent--and six-pack abs--but a fascinating story. A Grammy Award-winner, LL has appeared in numerous films and televisions shows, written books, and 10 years ago helped to launch the popular FUBU clothing line. Now he's debuted his own signature clothing line, Todd Smith, and a workout book is due in December.
