If there was an award for the Sexiest Man of All Time, there’s no doubt in our minds that this heartthrob would be a top contender. His name says it all. You know him as LL Cool J, and for good reason — the Ladies really do Love Cool James. Us included. We fell head-over-heels for the rapper-turned-actor when he stepped on the scene in the early 80s, making his mark on the rap game, and that love only grew over time. Admit it, you wanted to be his “Around the Way Girl.” As LL gears up to host the 2012 Grammys this weekend, we pay tribute to hip-hop’s almighty hunk. Enjoy a look back at some of the sexiest moments of his career!
