James Todd Smith aka LL Cool J: January 14, 1968
He’s known as one of hip hop’s pioneers, with more than a decade of music on his resume, he found a balance between making the ladies swoon and the gangstas respect him. He made and easy transition from hip hop to becoming and on-screen star. We salute you for paving the way for so many others coming up in the game. Happy Birthday LL, G.O.A.T.!
