NCIS: LA’s LL Cool James brings so many acronyms to The Late Show!

NCIS: LA’s LL Cool James brings so many acronyms to The Late Show!
LL Cool J with his NCIS: LA co-star Chris O'Donnell.

Star of the hit series NCIS: LA LL Cool James swaggered into the Ed Sullivan Theater to have a sit and chat with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

It was adorable. These guys should both quit the shows they are doing and do a show together (well, maybe not quit their own shows – they’re probably not too busy, right?). All pretences dropped, Stephen opened with the obvious question: what keeps Cool J so cool (and about his awesome rap career)?


LL Cool J didn’t stop there – he went on to regale Stephen with stories of how he used to have to tell his audience what hip hop actually is.

Okay, okay, so getting to it. Here’s what you’ve been wanting to know: LL Cool J does do some sweet rhymes on The Late Show. His very first rhymes, in fact (the dude started writing rhymes when he was 12!). Anyways, after those sweet rhymes he talks about how crazy the rest of the NCIS: LA is going to be!
