"Hip-hop can be limiting and I refuse to accept limits. I`ve been training as an actor for six years. Nobody goes to acting school for six years. I mean, the college course is only four years! I absolutely trained. My acting coach is from the Stanislavsky school. It`s real - I act."

 

"Am I James Todd Smith now or LL Cool J? Pick a name baby. Pick a name and ride with it. I don`t wanna abandon my identity as LL Cool J, but at the same time, I had to figure out how to let people know that I`m really serious about making these movies. You know when you do 25 or 30 movies and people are still asking you `how does it feel making the transition?` you know you`re not communicating correctly. So I just put the James Todd Smith thing there to let people know I was serious. It`s not like I made it Lawrence Cool J or something!."
