Born in Bay Shore, New York, and raised between St. Albans, New York and Hollis, New York in the borough of Queens. The only child of Ondrea (née Griffith) and James Smith, Jr. Smith is of both African American and Native American descent. He spent his youth singing in the church choir, participating in the Boy Scouts and delivering newspapers.
He is known for romantic ballads such as I Need Love and Hey Lover as well as pioneering hip-hop such as I Can’t Live Without My Radio, I’m Bad, The Boomin’ System, Mama Said Knock You Out, and 4, 3, 2, 1. L has also appeared in several films. LL Cool J is one of a few hip-hop stars of his era to sustain a successful recording career for more than two decades. He has released 12 albums and a greatest hits compilation so far, with his next album, Exit 13, set to be released in September, 2008. The album will be the last for LL’s record deal with Def Jam Recordings, a deal which has lasted for over twenty two years, making it the longest single hip hop deal to date. He now resides in Manhasset, NY with his wife and four children.
His latest album, Exit 13, debuted today, September 8th, and according to LL himself on a B.E.T. interview (106th and park), you’re “gonna wanna buy this album, since it might be a while before I make another one.”
