    Beautiful family and congrats to Mr. James Todd Smith. I'm going to take a nap and see if it's snowing when I wake up.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    How much do Walk of Fame stars cost these days? You think we can start a GoFundMe account to get our own star?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm surprised he didn't purchase his star sooner. There must be a waiting list.

  • Too Many Colors

    Person who nominates you gotta pay 30k. I bet Queen nominated him.

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Magic look in top form to me. He's got as much musculature as LL.

    He probably not taking that AZT...

  • PettyEyezPrime

    We got a rush card, not a black card?

  • askquestions

    He's legendary. But how is he a mogul?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Did they remove Bill Cosby's star or was that rumor?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Stars I didn't know until I looked it up just now had a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: Big Bird, Destiny's Child, Giancarlo Espisito (love him!), Pee Wee Herman, the Olsen twins & Wesley Snipes. Interesting.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

  • 88

    Uncle L has a nice looking family.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    The way the FOB status is set up...who we got left? Da Kang? Could you imagine him giving a speech using his BIG BOY words?

  • Too Many Colors

    I think TI and Tiny should sponsor me

  • Meme81

    He REAAALLLY doesn't like showing his bald head, lol. He seems like a nice enough man, without knowing him personally.

  • Too Many Colors

    I just said him. ??????

  • Yoni

  • PettyEyezPrime

    His family came out to stunt on dem THOT YOES. They look goodT! You Lip licker keep doing what you're doing. If you weren't married...but you are so never mind.

  • Yoni

    But it makes soooo much sense tho'. Right? You've never bounced to that when you in the lab mixing up yo whip?

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I finally watched that sorry movie Antman from Redbox. And Clifford Harris got much better at acting. He must have taken lessons.

    I think the future is brighter for an actor starting to rap. Opposed to a rapper turned actor.

    Well maybe that's just me thinking out loud.

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Organic food... I don't know. I don't know if there is a secret.

    Maybe the secret is not to take antiviral medication. Didn't Charlie Sheen just come out and announce to the world, that he's longer taking his medicine?..

  • Full Monty

    Don't you mean long suffering multi-millionaires? If that is suffering, I will take 2 please!

  • MookieFly

    Why everybody got to be long suffering?? I will say that Mr. LL has a beautiful family. Everybody looking cute!

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    Mrs. LL Cool J...and dem white shoes....I HATE white shoe. That's all

  • Full Monty

    What Big Bird has a star?

  • Too Many Colors

    I been in love since "I'm Bad. Bigger and Deffer. One of first rap albums I had. My 10 yo self was gonna "murry" me some him. "I Need Love". Same album lmao!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I'm no fan of white shoes either

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Giancarlo Espisito
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Buggin out has a star????

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Dear TWC, Why are you acting up while I'm having lunch? Where these issues was at when I was working? Dubb VPN broke... where is my relief?

  • Too Many Colors

    Arrrguhhh. I ain't see em! Why Simone????

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Well, He has been on tv for decades.

  • Yoni

    It IS organic/electric foods. The secret is changing the way you eat. Live off the land.

    I don't know about Charlie Sheen and his meds regime.

  • Too Many Colors

    Spike Lee probably paid for it

  • Just Keya

    Real quick: congrats LL. You deserve. Did anyone say he should protest and give it back since it came from the white man? No? Oh ok. Lmao. Bye.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    That must be it. But he deserve. I loved him in breaking bad.

  • Sincerity7

    I was thinking that same thing. Cookie could have walked away a long time ago if that was in her heart.

  • SummerBaby

    Congrats! Beautiful family.

  • SandrasNewFave

    That sistah is staring a hole into Mr. Elba's (aka my true love) head. She wants him to turn around so bad.

    *cues up Hungry Eyes....

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    You forgot to say *poof*! ???

  • Zizzle

    Pure hype.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I was so disillusioned to learn the real process behind these stars.

  • Zizzle

    I don't envy the brother when it comes to those daughters. Damn! All power to you, chief.

  • Just Keya

    :poof: oh and why is the wife suffering? She has a splinter in her butt? I hope that's not because LL was a known cheater. He even wrote about it in his book. So, she chose to stick around so her ass is not suffering. They kept it together, and made it work and they seem happy. #ProBlackLove Oh and the snow is supposed to start at 7. Prayers for everyone. :poof: <--for Soul Glow lmao

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Now LL is on the same level as The Fresh Prince. They have the same accolades.

  • That’s Interesting

    What a beautiful family! Queen needs to dye those roots ASAP!

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Has anybody seen Paul Mooney: A Piece of my Mind? It's on Netflix. Those white people were so uncomfortable in that audience.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Skinny bare chest LL with the Kangol hat ?

  • Just Keya

    ??

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Haha, they all are.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Is Benny Medina behind will?

  • Mel

    LL still looks good kudos to him and his wife for making things work I'm sure it's challenging knowing ya man is a sex symbol n chit,knowing every female wanna get a chance to touch his lips?. Look at his unruly son he out there bringing shame to the family acting a drunken plum fool ?

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I'd do some things to that man.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    No but I will...I love Paul Mooney

  • Yoni

    *jots this down* I luh that man. LOL

  • Fendi

    Cookie has her clothing line, her mansion in Beverly Hills, her children, her vacations and her husband who is worth half-a-billion dollars. Trust when I say, she is unbothered by people's opinions of her family and what they believe she should have done. (This is not a swipe at you, but her critics.) She is most pleasant.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Didn't he say he was stopping his meds. Prob ain't been taking them anyway??

  • Fendi

    I cried.

  • Fendi

    That she is pregnant? I think so.

  • Yoni

    Again, I don't know what this man said or is taking. I just know that he been fuggin folks while KNOWINGLY having this disease and nothing is done about it. It disgusts me.

  • Just Keya

    :poof: Last one, I promise. But two things: 1) I see Wendy lost her FOB status. I was wondering how she got that to begin with. 2) WHY are MAndeeceesesese and Yandi acting like he is the first person to ever go to jail. Child boo and bye. Welp, at least he can work on those err rap skills for the next 8 years. He will have plenty of time...IJS. Hopefully he have someone trying to snatch his booty in jail. Good luck sir. Ok bye for real. :poof:

  • Bam Bam Li

    Congrats LL aka Mr Licky Licky lips, well deserved sir well deserved.

  • Just Keya

    And how him and Tiny still got that IDK because they stay withholding information. IJS :kona:

  • Too Many Colors

    LA Times wrote a rundown on how it works, and I was too girl. Like really ?

  • Too Many Colors

    Yesssss. Omg!

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Paul is crazy. lol

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    First 10 minutes he talks about white folks stealing from black people.

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I don't even think he should've went on Disney/ABC and made a statement. My wife said that was him standing behind Jada. Even though he was talking cryptic.

    Couldn't he have simply supported his wife by not going to the Oscars?.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4d55c057fbb5cd37f064edda4b1fb7464259ee260b2ba85c399436a3237c387a.jpg

  • http://www.landofpure.net Fayla

    It does! But nah. I'm listening to Mali Music or Jhene Aiko. Daley. People I get get into a vibe with. Sometimes I'm crunk, but most times I'm in a relaxed mode.

  • Yoni

    Mali Music is the TRUTH! I saw him in concert over the summer. I like Daley too. Jhene got some cuts as well.

  • surprise2012

    Nice looking family. CONGRATS to LL. If that's his sons girlfriend, her body language is off a lil.

    I LOVE Paul Mooney, but sometimes, he lets his anger get in the way of his comedy.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    They handling it WAY better than I ever could cuz ?would be in my mind constantly (allegedly) lol. I always said God knows what situation to keep me away from. #livesgetsavedthatway

  • http://www.landofpure.net Fayla

    Wow! I'm mad they didn't have any there to purchase. He missed coins yo! Check amazon

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Well when things were shaky, sides were taken lol. We wanted Tiny (me as a lurker), he just was doing what he was put here to do. Chicks cooking dinner and using paper plates meant NATHAN!

  • Yoni

    He was nice.

  • 1/8

    Congratulations to LL! He made his mark without ghettoizing his brand.

  • Yoni

    I will.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    Come thru Samaria !!!!

  • surprise2012

    Ok. So that limits her? 1st she's not HIV positive, so it's a possibility someone will touch her. I've seen shows where HIV/AIDS positive people meet their soul mate and live productive lives.

  • surprise2012

    The crazy girl from Love and Hip Hop. She says and "whatnot" after every sentence. I wasn't throwing jabs I just thought that was funny because I have not heard anyone say that accept her :).

  • Hater

    Nice to see these two have stuck by one another for all these years, respect & congrats to LL!

  • SaltineCrackers

    Oh my God. Listen, back in the 90's there was no such thing as HIV. Whether you had H.I.V or the actual AIDS virus, it was all the same thing. People who had or got it back then learned very quickly that if you wanted to be around people you had better keep your mouth shut about your diagnosis. You practically had it by association back then.

    People still hide their H.I.V and AIDS statuses in 2016.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's only because her mother and grandmother taught her to be a submissive wife to her man. When LL was living with Kidada, Simone kept the home fire burning until the Dopamine faded and he begged her to take him back.

  • Hater

    Loves it and I believe Simone is a better choice then Kidada Jones...

  • Fendi

    Same. Thank you.

  • CaramelDrop

    That's the same thing I thought! Her waist to ass ratio is looking RIGHT!

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Um, that's LL's young daughter you're referring to. Children are off limits.

  • Auditor

    My crackhead aunty don't look old. She got that AIDS too. I don't know if it's the crack or what but she doesn't take her medicine either. Been going strong damn near 30 years...

  • Auditor

    Yup don't take it...my aunt said it made her sicker than the virus. She has had it damn near 30 years...she's a crackhead too...

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Well damn... Nose laugh.

    I'm sure the coke isn't helping her immune system. She knows what works for her. She must have figured something out. Our elders know, regardless of how they appear.

  • Auditor

    Lol I have no idea...never went to a known/former crackhead funeral. I've heard my mother/father talk about folks they grew up with that were crackheads though so yup you're right lol.

  • CaramelDrop

    Are u sure auntie? You named mom and three females... The one on the end wasn't named or mention. Either way her waist to Ass ratio is looking right and I'm inspired to squat and crunch until you can't deny my fineness either. Either way, it was a compliment, ONLY A PERVERT would think otherwise.

    Going forward I will remember to be careful when complimenting grown looking woman that you haven't identified/confirmed
