LL Cool J Net Worth $85 Million

Born James Todd Smith, LL Cool J started his music training in the church choir. With encouragement from his grandfather, he started learning how to use a mixing table when he was 16. Before long, LL Cool J started to record songs that he sent to record labels. The new name he used for his albums was LL Cool J since this stood for Ladies Love Cool James.

Before long, the single, “I need a beat”, managed to sell more than 100,000 copies. This early success led LL Cool J to drop out of high school and to pursue music full time. His first album sold more than 1.5 million copies and became a critical success. By the time LL Cool J released his second album, he had achieved such a level of commercial acclaim that the album went platinum twice.
