LL Cool J Celebrates His Kennedy Center Honors Achievement

 LL Cool J will become the first rapper to be commemorated at the Kennedy Center Honors event on Sunday night (December 3). Ahead of the ceremony, the Hip Hop legend was in a reflective mood, sharing his thoughts about this special honor over the weekend.

“I believe that we are built to do anything we put our minds and proper actions to,” he wrote on Instagram. “You have all the tools inside you that are required for you to fulfill your GOD given purpose. This one is for those who came before me and those who followed me. We were sent to this planet to love and inspire one another. Manifest our dreams and make them a reality. I hope you’re inspired by me because I’m absolutely Inspired by you. Mic check 1212 Let’s ride!! ? #KCHonors #StateDepartmentDinner #hiphop.”

LL Cool J Nominated For The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Joining the likes of artists like Nina Simone, Rage Against The Machine and Bon Jovi, the “I’m Bad” rapper is the only MC amongst the 19 artists nominated for the musical honor. That alone should be enough to get him into the HOF.

If you’re wondering why some of your other favorite rappers from the 90’s aren’t on the list, nominees for the current years have to have released a commercial record 25 years prior to the annual ceremony. That being said this year’s crop had to have dropped something no later than 1992.

Congratulations to the Hip-Hop icon and get ready to see a slew of your favorite Hip-Hop legends up to bat in the coming years.
