Lick your lips one time for the super fine LL Cool J! The rapper and actor is actually the grandson of a Barbadian native who came to the U.S. to make a better life for his family. Though his grandfather was supportive of his endeavors in hip-hop music, he wasn’t initially talking about buying turntables for Mr. James Todd Smith. “Yes my family’s from Barbados and my grandfather’s real cheap. Anyone who knows Caribbean people knows they’re very cheap, you know.  He didn’t want to buy turntables.  That wasn’t his thing soooo, he was saying no, no, no, no, no.” He wasn’t so cheap after all, because his grandfather wound up getting him a turntable to keep him out of trouble.
