Ll Cool J Net Worth 2013 – 2014: $110 Million

His real name is James Todd Smith III, he is a rapper and an actor who has an estimated net worth of more than $100 million dollars, and whose salary is greater than $150,000 per episode of CSI Los Angeles. Mr. Smith, as I like to call him is more than just an actor, in fact, I consider him to be one of the pioneers of the hip hop genre, and even though it’s been awhile since he last produced great music, I still like to think of him as one of the greatest rappers of all time. If you disagree with me, it’s ok, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but if you are one of the few who actually disagrees with me, then that’s probably because you’ve probably never heard his most awesome songs such as Hush, Hey Lover, Doin’ It, Going Back to Cali, and I’m Gonna Knock You Out among thousands of others. But let’s not forget that LL is also a talented and accomplished actor who has starred in lots of popular films and television series such as Any Given Sunday, SWAT, Deep Blue Sea, Charlie’s Angels, NCIS, and Hawaii Five-0 among several others.

As a rapper, LL Cool J has sold more than 150 million copies worldwide, that’s why most of us who love hip hop consider Mr. Smith a hip hop icon, the music genre in which he has excelled throughout his entire career as an artist. In fact, and as I already mentioned, James Todd Smith was one of the first rap artists to become known, he’s been making hit after hit since the late 80s, and he was also the first hip hop artist to earn the Platinum and Gold status by the RIAA six consecutive times. LL Cool J is now better known as an actor, however, music was the vehicle he used to achieve success. The Source magazine included his fourth album “Mama Said Knock You Out” on their 100 Best Rap Albums of All Time list in 1998, and two years later, Rolling Stone magazine ranked the album at #6 on their list of the best hip hop albums of all time.

LL has been starring on the popular TV show “NCIS: Los Angeles” since 2009, keep in mind that the show is watched by approximately more than 15 million viewers each month, reason why he gets paid between $125,000 and $150,000 per episode. Each season has somewhere around 24 episodes, so do the math and I’m sure you’ll be surprised. Apart from his salary as an actor, the rapper also makes money from other endeavors. Mr. Smith has been involved with the fashion industry, and he has published four books, one of which is his own autobiography titled “I Make My Own Rules”, a must read for all rap lovers.

How Much is LL Cool J Really Worth?

LL Cool J has not been ranked by Forbes Magazine in recent years, and I honestly don’t know why, because he sure does have the money and the fame to make it there. Anyway, if Forbes ever decides to include him on one of their highly coveted lists we will update this page and let you know about it as soon as it happens.
