Behind the Scenes for LL Cool J Essence Shoot!

0 years later and LL is still cool!


The NYC bred rapper got sexy for his cover shoot for Essence Magazine and HipHollywood was there exclusively! Check out our BTS footage from the cover shoot and our interview with Todd Smith as he dishes on not being so comfortable being dubbed a sex symbol and his upcoming album Authentic Hip-Hop.


Inside the issue, LL also gets personal about family and his wife Simone’s bout with a rare form of cancer telling Essence:

“My focus was being supportive and making sure our kids weren’t terrified. If there were family members around Simone who would start crying, I wouldn’t allow them around her anymore.”

The March Issue of Essence is on news stands February 8. In the meantime, be sure to check back for part two of our interview!
