It’s been a long time coming for Uncle L “Future Of The Funk”.
CBS: Rapper and actor LL Cool J received the 2,571st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, honoring a pioneering recording career that made him the first rap artist to amass 10 consecutive platinum-plus selling albums.
Queen Latifah and Sean “Diddy” Combs joined the “NCIS: Los Angeles” star at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony in front of the Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Boulevard.
The ceremony comes a week after his birthday and slightly more than three weeks before he hosts the Grammys for the fifth consecutive year.
Joining the ranks of such icons as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Michael Jackson, the actor and rapper said the honor was a big deal for him.
“I’m grateful, this is pretty big for me,” he said.
LL was joined by his peers like Puff Daddy, Queen Latifah, Kevin Liles and Russell Simmons.
