Originally hailing from Queens, New York, Ladies Love Cool J, aka LL Cool J, made his debut back in 1985. Now, the Dej Jam Recordings artist has just been announced as a 2018 nominee for the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.
LL hit the hip-hop scene with his debut album Radio and throughout his rap career he’s put out a total of 13 studio albums with early solo hits like ‘Mama Said Knock You Out,’ ‘I Need Love,’ ‘Doin’ It’ and even major collabs with Jennifer Lopez, Timbaland, and more.
LL joins the 2018 nominees list with a slew of pivitol musicians, but this year, the rapper is the only hip-hop artist to be named as a nominee.
If LL Cool J gets inducted into the Rock Hall Of Fame, he will join other hip-hop greats N.W.A., Public Enemy, 2Pac, Run-D.M.C, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, and Beastie Boys.
Inductees will be announced in December with the ceremony taking place April 14th.
