After dominating the rap game in the 1980s and 90s and taking up acting, LL Cool J adds another feather in his hat by graduating Harvard Business School. 

He broke the incredible news on his personal Instagram Monday, Nov. 27 in a post garnering over 62,000 likes. The NCIS: Los Angeles star and host of Lip Sync Battle has revealed that he has completed the Business of Entertainment media & sports program at the prestigious university.

LL joins megastar producer Swizz Beatz, who recently announced that he also graduated from Harvard Business School. Beatz took another route, however, and learned entrepreneurship and managerial skills.



"Completed the Business of Entertainment media & sports program @harvardhbs,” the iconic rapper wrote in the caption. “It was a life-altering experience. Learning is cool...  #dreamsdemandhustle #dreamsdonthavedeadlines lets go!!!! Ps. The head of the program & my professor @anitaelberse was absolutely gangster. #ironsharpensiron.”

LL can now launch and manage creative products and portfolios with his newfound education. Harvard’s Entertainment Media and Sports Program is no joke and the fact that he has managed to achieve this while acting and hosting various gigs makes the 49-year-old rapper a real renaissance man. 

Congrats LL Cool J!
