“From Hollis to Hollywood, but is he good?” LL Cool J dropped that rhyme in “Hollis to Hollywood” from his 1995 album Mr. Smith.
And apparently he is! LL Cool J has made the leap from old school b-boy to Hollywood legend with his induction into the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony took place yesterday at an 11:30 a.m. ceremony in front of the Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Boulevard. He was joined by fellow Hip Hop legends, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Queen Latifah.
