LL Cool J's Pants - Rapper LL
Cool J (real name: James Todd Smith) had the habit of rolling up one
pant leg. The action contained no earth shaking message, it was just
his way of making a fashion statement. LL Cool J ("Ladies Love
Cool James") starred on the sitcom IN THE HOUSE/NBC/UPN/1995-96 as
landlord Marion Hill. His rap lyrics (not affiliated with the
gangsta rap scene) were not violent, anti-women, drug-oriented or
more longevity than most of the rappers you came up with. Will
you still be behind the mike 30 years from now?
LL Cool J:
what Vegas is paying. [laughs] I’ll be rapping about
denture cream, Preparation H. My pants will still be sagging,
but it’ll be from the Depends.
