LL Cool J Salary What is LL Cool J's salary per episode of CSI Los Angeles? $125,000 LL Cool J was born James Todd Smith on January 14th, 1968 in Bay shore, New York. Smith took an interest in music at an early age when he began performing in his church choir. His grandfather encouraged James with his music at brought him his first mixing table at the age of sixteen. The mixing table was bought at Sears. He began recording his own songs which he sent out to various record companies. His demo got into the hands of the folks at Def Jam recordings. Def Jam loved the demo and released his first record. The record was released under his new stage name L L Cool J which meant Ladies Love Cool James. The rap industry and America also loved Cool J because his single "I need a beat" sold over 100,000 copies. This prompted him to drop out of high school to record his first album. His debut album, "Radio" was a huge success and went platinum with 1,500,000 sales. Beyond being a financial success it was also critical success with Cool J bringing conventional song structure which made rap friendlier to the average listener. He would follow it up in 1987 with "Bigger and Deffer". The song "I need love" was one of the first pop-rap songs. He was much again met with both critical and commercial acclaim with the album going 2X platinum. He would return in 1989 with another album (Walking with a Panther) which would once again go platinum. It was during this time that the hip-hop scene in the west began to emerge. The themes in the hip-hop community began to involve more gangster themes. In 1990 he released "Mama Said Knock You Out". The album had a much rougher edged which appealed to the new face of hip-hop... It was considered another success. Sadly, his follow-up album in 1993 failed with both critics and audiences. He took two years off and began an acting career. It was during this time that he appeared in the films "The Hard Way" and "Toys". He also starred on the NBC sitcom "In the house". He returned to music in 1995 with Mr. Smith. The record featured tracks with Boys II Men and even covered the Michael Jackson song, "The Lady in My Life". The music video would be one of the first hip-hop videos ever featured on VH1 and would earn LL a Grammy award. He has since released six other successful records. Recently LL Cool J focuses more of his acting career. He has appeared in the films Halloween: H20, Deep Blue Sea, and The last Holiday just to name a few. He can currently be seen on the hit television program NCSI: Los Angeles opposite Chris O' Donnell.
James Todd Smith (born January 14, 1968), better known as LL Cool J (an abbreviation for Ladies Love Cool James), is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and actor from Bay Shore, New York. He is known for romantic ballads such as "I Need Love", "Around the Way Girl" and "Hey Lover" as well as pioneering hip-hop such as "I Can't Live Without My Radio", "I'm Bad", "The Boomin' System", and "Mama Said Knock You Out". He has released thirteen studio albums and two greatest hits compilations, including 2008's Exit 13, the last for his record deal with Def Jam Recordings. He has also appeared in numerous films, and currently stars as NCIS Special Agent Sam Hanna on the CBS crime drama television series NCIS: Los Angeles.
As he grew older, Todd found a way to escape the effects of his abuse, and his bullying attitude: hip-hop music. He fell in love with it at the age of nine, and by 11 he was writing lyrics and making his own songs with some DJ equipment his grandmother gave him to stop him riding motorcycles or doing karate.
Influenced by Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, funk legend Rick James, Kurtis Blow, and pioneers Run-DMC, LL started to create his own rap style.
Radio was released to critical acclaim, both for production innovation and LL's powerful rap. "I Can't Live Without My Radio" and "Rock the Bells" were singles that helped the album go platinum with 1,500,000 sales.[citation needed]
In 1987, he released Bigger and Deffer which included "I Need Love". Also featured on the album was "Go Cut Creator Go", which pays homage to the DJ. The album sold about 2,300,000 copies.[citation needed] In 1998, The Source Magazine named it as one of the top 100 albums ever. "I Need Love" was the second single from LL Cool J's second album, Bigger and Deffer. The song, released in the fall of 1987, reached #1 on the R&B/Hip Hop charts, #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and #8 in the UK Singles Chart. The single won a Soul Train Music Award for Best Rap - Singl
