After releasing his first hit, �I Can't Live Without My Radio,� in 1985 when he was just 17 years old, LL quickly developed his own unique style. His first two albums, �Radio� and �Bigger and Deffer,� made him a star, but �Mama Said Knock You Out� established him as one of hip-hop's genuine superstars. He will be releasing his next album, �Exit 13,� in May.

In addition to his music success, LL Cool J starred in his own television sitcom, �In the House,� and appeared in several films, including �S.W.A.T.� with Samuel L.
