LL Cool J stopped by the ET stage on Monday to reminisce over his game-changing first album, and what it's like to be directed by his NCIS: Los Angeles co-star Chris O'Donnell.
This month marks the 30th anniversary of his first album, Radio. LL's first LP also served as Dej Jam Recordings' first full-length album release. The project is widely regarded as LL Cool J's best work as well as one of the most seminal works in hip-hop, but ET's Nancy O'Dell was focused on the front and back cover.
"I haven't decided about the Gilligan's Island hat," Nancy said, inciting a belly laugh from the 47-year-old GRAMMY winner.
"Oh, Lovey!" LL said, in reference to the character Mrs. Lovey Howell, played by Natalie Schafer.
Today, LL is a hot commodity in Hollywood -- he stars on NCIS: Los Angeles and hosts Lip Sync Battle on Spike -- but there was a time when he had to beg for a job. He recalled the unorthodox way he was cast in the 1985 cult classic Krush Groove, about a fictional rap label based on the early days of Def Jam.
