LL Cool J

Year of Honor: 2011

 

The latest recipient of this prestigious award (and the fourth one who hails from Queens, NY), LL Cool J is an undeniable rap legend who has managed to remain relevant generation after generation. Much like Ice Cube, "Uncle L" has catapulted himself into a career in film just as big as his career in music. Whether you're watching NCIS: Los Angeles or dusting off an old pair of TROOPS, it's evident that it's not just the ladies who love Cool J, it's  hip hop culture as a whole. Tune in October 11, 2011 at 8P/9C to watch LL Cool J receive the I Am Hip-Hop honor at the BET Hip-Hop Awards 2011.
