Praise for I MAKE MY OWN RULES:
"Meet an LL Cool J that few know...Revealing." -JET
"Smith candidly shares his life lessons, blessings and hardships...RULES is a charismatic page-turner...RULES is funny, entertaining and enlightening, but what makes it so special is that it's the first memoir from an around-the-way, self-proclaimed student of Hip-Hop, who tells us how we can simultaneously succeed and stay true to ourselves at the same time."
