When many think of hip hop sex symbols, they think of LL Cool J. At the peak of his career, LL Cool J enjoyed a twenty-four year run. While LL Cool J swept women off their feet, he also ended a few careers along the way. But, in 2008, LL Cool J decided it was time to end his own career, at least for the time being.
Next month, LL Cool J is scheduled to release his Authentic Hip Hop album, his first studio album in five years.
