Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Born James Todd Smith, LL Cool J overcame a turbulent childhood to become not only a hip-hop superstar but also a star beyond hip-hop entertainment, becoming a well-known actor and developing his own clothing line. LL Cool J has been a hip-hop star since he was a teenager, and despite dropping out of school and having to leave home, he has maintained a level head and rose quickly to the ranks of stardom. LL's desire to stay out of trouble has contributed to his success and his desire to help others has made him a popular celebrity beyond hip-hop. Hill has presented LL's professional accomplishments and a few personal details when they contribute to his professional success or failure. There is little information provided about LL's personal life, but the text provides an adequate introduction to LL's professional achievements. The text is part of the "Superstars of Hip-Hop" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
