Issa Win: LL Cool J to become Kennedy Center’s first Hip-Hop honoree

"Doin' It" rap veteran, LL Cool J, will be doing it big for the genre as he's been tapped to become the first Hip-Hop artist to receive the Kennedy Center Honors in its 40-year history.

COME ONNNNN…NNN!

With an illustrious career spanning three decades, the 49-year-old St. Albans, Queens representative is poised to join the class of 2017's honorees–including pop stars Gloria Estefan, Lionel Richie, television icon Norman Lear and choreographer Carmen de Lavallade– as they're saluted by performers while seated alongside President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, on Sunday, Dec. 3 at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington, D.C.

In addition to earning bragging rights as the culture's inaugural recipient of such prestigious praise, LL Cool J, according to NPR, will also become the youngest man to received honorable recognition from the Kennedy Center since Stevie Wonder.

YASSSSSS..

Last year, the barrier-breaking kid who stormed the Hip-Hop scene via Def Jam with his 1984 debut track, "I Need A Beat," and eventually transformed into music, TV, and film's leading sex symbol received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
