Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Hip-hop is such an integral part of youth culture today that it is hard to believe that it is a relatively recent development in the history of music. But its influence on culture is obvious. Throughout its short existence, hip-hop has seen the rise and fall of numerous artists, and there are few who have survived the rise and fall of industry trends. LL Cool J is one of the survivors who have withstood the change in the industry, transforming his music as well as himself to suit the industry. LL Cool J not only remains a popular rapper, but also has become a successful actor. Shekell's brief biography details not only LL Cool J's stardom, but the difficulties he has had in his personal life and the steps he has taken to change his situation and develop better relationships with the people in his life. Still, Shekell does not only offer a personal biography; much of the text is taken up with the history of hip-hop, offering glimpses of other artists and groups as well as a fascinating history of the culture and how it has evolved over the years. This text is part of the "Hip-Hop Stars" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
