James Todd Smith, better known as LL Cool J, is again making his hometown of Southeast Queens proud. LL is a  Queens-bred rap artist, actor, author, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.

LL Cool J is known mainly for his rap artist background and impressive television and film career. He is less known globally, but highly regarded in our area, for sponsoring youth and community based programs like the highly regarded Jump And Ball Community Camp, run at O'Connell Park, of Southeast Queens, during the Summer. 

LL has done it again, showing his determination in the classroom by completing the "Business of Entertainment" media & sports program at the prestigious Harvard University School of Business.  Recently, it was reported another hip hop standout Swiss Beatz, also graduated a business school program and Harvard U.

It was also reported that when LL Cool J, joined the program he stated "Learning is cool."  Our area has had many successful hip hop moguls and rap stars like 50 Cent, Russell Simmons, Ja Rule, Daymond John and many more but we think he is the 1st to graduate a business program at Harvard University.

We congratulate LL and feel he epitomizes the old adage "strong body and strong mind."  We hope his success will inspire other young people interested in a rap career or influenced by hip hop culture to excel in education.
