The man behind the many classic hip-hop hits, "Around The Way Girl", "I Need Love", "Hey Lover", "Mama Said Knock You Out", and a hit TV sitcom, "In The House" others turns 40 today.

Born James Todd Smith, one persistent thing LL Cool J (that's the professional name he's known as) is his hat-wearing habits as you can see in the picture montage above.

LL kept his head cover either in a Kangol or a NY baseball cap.

LL Cool J is a man of many nicknames such as G.O.A.T, and LL.

And for the record, LL Cool J stands for Ladies Love Cool James.
