LL Cool J

LL Cool J aka Ladies Love Cool Jams is one of those artists whose song still run through my head years later. Catchy beats, great rhymes, and a certain style that make him stick out in the minds of the youth of the late 80s and early 90s. By the 2000s, LL Cool J had branched out and was starting to become the actor that we see him as nowadays.

  • Deep Blue Sea – While LL Cool J has many acting credits, my favorite is Deep Blue Sea. He plays the chef for the science vessel that is making hybrid, crazy-ass sharks. LL Cool J is the heart of this movie. His scenes are fun and he is alone for a good part of the action. Part comic relief and you get the glimmer of the actor that he will become.
Dreams don’t have deadlines. I’m thinking of doing bigger and better things and having more fun with it.
Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.
When adversity strikes, that’s when you have to be the most calm. Take a step back, stay strong, stay grounded and press on.
