After being on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot 6 times since 2010, LL Cool J will be inducted this year. LL Cool J called “Rolling Stone” magazine right after hearing the news and said, “To be honest with you, it’s humbling and it’s inspiring. It makes me want to get in the studio and give something back for this recognition.” LL Cool J also said in the impromptu interview about the 6 previous nominations, “At the end of the day, that only makes it better. People get caught up in that kind of stuff when their ego gets involved. That’s when you get in trouble. But I never put my ego in it. I understand that there’s a rhythm and a reason and people feel what they feel. What’s meant for you will come to you. So I’m good.” Jay-Z, Tina Turner, The Foo Fighters are some of the others being inducted to this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
