Under his new stage name, LL Cool J ('''L'''adies '''L'''ove '''C'''ool '''J'''ames), Def Jam released his first record, the 12" single "I Need a Beat". The single sold over 100,000 copies. The success of "I Need a Beat" helped lead to a distribution deal with Def Jam and Creator/ColumbiaRecords in 1985. Soon after, he dropped out of Andrew Jackson High School to record his debut album. He is known for romantic ballads such as "I Need Love", "Around the Way Girl" and "Hey Lover" as well as pioneering hardcore hip-hop songs such as "I Can't Live Without My Radio", "I'm Bad", "The Boomin' System", and "Mama Said Knock You Out". He has released ''thirteen'' studio albums (the first twelve of which were exclusively released on Def Jam Records) and two greatest hits compilations. His most recently released album is 2013's ''Authentic'', which is his first album not released on the Def Jam label.

* RecycledLyrics: LL has a ''notoriously'' bad habit of doing this in his songs, reusing lines for hooks and [[ContinuityNod references]]. By the 2000s he started doing it much less than he used to.
