LL COOL J - Madison Square Park, fall 1985 - first day I met him, he turned 50 years yesterday, you can do the math of how old we were then, he was still a teen ager and i was just in my early 20’s... when we made this photo his 2nd 12" single was just released, for "I'M DANGEROUS" and i was up in the RUSH office at 1133 Broadway, hanging out there either getting ready to make photos with Run-DMC in Hollis that week or had just finished days prior. I was flown out from L.A. to make photos for their first ever tour book and other merchandise, made lots of incredible images that week that since have been recognized as iconic. But back to this story... this big kid (LL) walked in, I was introduced to him and asked if he wanted to do some photos, he had nothing else to do and had barely been photographed before, so we shot a roll, another from this roll became one of his earliest publicity photos, this one seemed a bit too revealing at the time of how young and nice he could be, the one previously published he looked tougher and older. This and a few others you've never seen from this early evening are printed huge in the MY RULES book.
