LL Cool J signed to Def Jam in 1984 and released the underground hit "I Need a Beat". The song was the first hit record for Def Jam, and its success persuaded him to drop out of school to record his first album, Radio. The album was released to critical acclaim, as LL Cool J was one of the first rappers to use conventional song structure to make pop-oriented rap. "I Can't Live Without My Radio" and "Rock the Bells" were successful and helped the album go platinum. In 1987, he released Bigger and Deffer. The ballad "I Need Love" was one of the first pop-rap songs to be a hit.
In 1990, LL Cool J released Mama Said Knock You Out, easily the hardest record he had ever made. It spawned three hit singles, "The Boomin' System", "Around the Way Girl" and the hard-hitting title track, which is arguably his signature tune. The single "Mama Said Knock You Out" received special notice after LL Cool J's dynamic performance of it during an episode of MTV Unplugged. It was also featured in the film "The Hard Way". The album included themes of police misconduct, spirituality along with back-to-basics hip-hop party rocking and eventually went on to sell over 2 million copies.
LL Cool J starred in "In the House", an NBC sitcom, before releasing his 1995 album Mr. Smith, which went on to sell over 2 million copies. Its singles "Doin' It" and "Loungin" were two of the biggest songs in 1996 and both songs' music videos were hugely successful on MTV. Another of the album's singles, "Hey Lover", featured Boyz II Men and eventually became one the first rap music videos to air on American VH1. The song also earned LL Cool J a Grammy.
LL Cool J's latest studio album, Todd Smith, was released in April 2006. It includes collaborations with Ginuwine, Juelz Santana, Teairra Mari and Freeway. The first single was the Jermaine Dupri produced "Control Myself", a song with singer Jennifer Lopez.
