Happy Birthday, LL Cool J -- there's no stopping you!
The rapper/actor celebrates his 47th birthday with a successful acting career, 13 studio albums (with another on the way), and countless hit singles including one that is SO incredibly '90s
, you might want to put on sunglasses.
"6 Minutes of Pleasure" was the fifth single off LL's fourth studio album,Mama Said Knock You Out. ET was on set of the wildly colorful music video back in 1991, where the 23-year-old rapper wanted to take a different approach to the single.
"Instead of me doing something that’s really risqué or something that's really out front, I wanted to bring the child out of myself, the little kid," LL told ET in '91, "just be playful and have fun and play with games instead of the young lady."
By games he means, literal games! The video takes place in a giant playhouse featuring LL dressed as a superhero, riding a see saw, and playing with toys.
"It's so comical and humorous. It feels good!" LL said.
While he would later become one of the most influential hip-hop artists of all time, back then, he was still on the rise.
"It takes time you know? It's a slow process, but you can't keep a good man down and the cream always rises, you just have to be patient and work hard."
