Hip-hop legend, Grammy winner, TV and film star, devoted husband and father, LL Cool J has accomplished it all. Nevertheless, it's easy to see a scenario where it never would have happened.

Now, after decades in a loving marriage to his wife, Simone, LL explains how she and their four children keep him grounded and balanced.
