How to Hire LL COOL J For Your Event!
aka: James Todd Smith
Hire LL Cool J:
Grammy Award winning LL Cool J (short for Ladies Love Cool James), is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, and actor. He is one of the earliest rappers to achieve commercial success, alongside fellow new school hip hop acts Beastie Boys and Run-DMC.
As one of the few commercially viable artists one can truly call a veteran, LL has come a long way from his origins in St. Albans, Queens. From his early days of rapping in front of the mirror in his bedroom while The Sugar Hill Gang boomed from his radio, LL has always been determined to be a winner in the game. “I sent my demo to many different companies, but it was Def Jam where I found my home,” says LL.
Hire LL Cool J for your festival or concert plans.
LL Cool J has received two Grammy Awards, penned his autobiography “I Make My Own Rules” and is the first rap artist to amass six consecutive platinum-plus selling albums and six gold singles.
Beginning his career with the masterful 1985 debut album “Radio,” which was the first Def Jam disc ever released, LL Cool J has refused to slow his roll. In addition to his music, he has also made forays into the world of film and television.
Yet, while he has appeared in seventeen films and one hit television series (the currently in syndication “In the House”), LL insists, “Doing films will never stop me from treating my music with the utmost respect. Just because people see me in films, doesn’t mean that I’m not still trying to create hot joints in the studio.”

While over the years LL Cool J has worked with a wide array of producers including Rick Rubin, Marley Marl and Puffy, he says, “Part of working with great producers, whether it’s Trackmasters or The Neptunes, is finding people who can help me execute my vision as an artist.”
Although LL is constantly writing rhymes in various notebooks, he confesses, “I do most of writing for record in the studio. I like being in the moment, writing in the zone as the beat bangs in my ears. From there, I just let the words fall where they fall.”
Hire LL Cool J for your very special event or occasion.
Speaking from the executive suite, Def Jam President Kevin Liles says, “Throughout his career he has reinvented himself, while still staying true to who he is. When he raps, he is still thinking about the girls who have his picture on the wall and the cats that know he has been through it all. He’s not trying to be what he’s not and he is what he is.”
As LL Cool J proclaimed on his release, “The G.O.A.T.,” he is still the Greatest of All Time. “As an artist, I feel I am constantly growing. It’s not about money or power anymore. There’s just a special feeling you get when you complete a project and present it to the world.” One is sure the world will still embrace the powers and prowess of LL Cool J.
In 2017, LL Cool J became the first rapper to receive the Kennedy Center Honors.

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire LL COOL J for an event?)
(i.e., what is LL COOL J booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for LL COOL J, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
