LL Cool J - a local guy from the Hollis and St. Albans, Queens, NYC area has done us all proud by becoming the 1st Rapper to win the prestigious Kennedy Center Awards, Sunday December, 3rd 2017. Cool J is one of the rappers and hip hop celebrities who have been able to expand his career successfully but also become a noteworthy humanitarian as well.
LL Cool J, who made it big in the entertainment business, also continues to give back to the Southeast Queens Community in a number of ways. One of my favorites is to help sponsor the summer basketball leagues at O'Connell Park.
