LL Cool J Background
Born James Todd Smith, LL Cool James adopted his stage name when he was a teenager. His childhood in Long Island, New York exposed him to the hip-hop culture, which enthralled the young LL Cool J. He spent much of his childhood listening to hip-hop and creating demo tapes in his grandparents' house. His initial success is largely due to the help of his grandfather, a jazz saxophonist who bought young James an expensive set of recording equipment. In addition to practicing the turntables and recording demo tracks, the teenage James Smith started to rap whenever he could. With most of his early teenage years spent working toward a musical career, it came as no surprise to many that knew him when he signed a record deal with Def Jam records.
His first hit was "I Need a Beat" which became a huge hip-hop hit, selling over 100,000 copies almost instantly.
