When you’ve got the staying-power that LL Cool J has, there is no doubt that “Ladies DO Love Cool James.” A pioneer in the hip hop revolution, this Grammy-winning artist came onto the scene in the mid-80s and is credited as one of first rappers to use conventional song structure to make pop-oriented rap. Songs like “I Need Love,” “Going Back to Cali,” “Jingling Baby,” Mama Said Knock You Out,” and “Around the Way Girl” bring us back to a kinder, gentler rap era. His smooth stylings transitioned well to the big and small screens, as well, with starring roles in blockbuster films like “SWAT” and TV series including “In the House” and the current CBS police drama “NCIS: Los Angeles.”  LL  shows his dapper side in a signature Kangol-style cap and these blingy Roberto Cavalli shades, available in four frame colors.  Cool James–keep the lovin’ comin’.  –rpuccia
