In fact, LL Cool J was one of the first rap artist signed to the,Def Jam.  Def Jam Records was started with  Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin as the labels CEO’s.

LL Cool J put the Def Jam record label on the map with his song, ” I Need A Beat”, in 1985. That single gave Def Jam record label great success. LL Cool J remained with the label for more than two decades. So when Jay Z took over as CEO, LL Cool J thought surely his success would continue.
