What will happen to LL Cool J’s TV character, Sam, on the next season of NCIS: Los Angeles? Sheryl Underwood said she can’t wait to see what’s coming next.

“Next year, a lot of people are going to be really shocked by what happens with the characters,” he said of his drama series. Whether you think the changes are good or bad is up to you.

LL Cool J moved to the West Coast a few years ago to film the TV show, but he is a born and bred New Yorker. He doesn’t mind living in LA, but New York will always be his home, he said.

He and his wife have four kids, who are obviously growing up differently than he did. Times have changed over the past few generations. He said he is grateful to be able to provide for them, but hopes they can keep things in perspective, without becoming entitled.

You can also check out some new music from LL Cool J on his new album, Authentic. Charlie Wilson is featured on two tracks from the release, including “Something About You” and “New Love.”

The album also includes appearances by Van Halen, Seal, and even Earth Wind and Fire. It sounds like there is something for everyone on this new record. It is his first project since 2008, and he has kept busy with the TV show for the past few years.

But something inside him drew him back to music, and he made this new album independently, for the love of the work. “I know people will enjoy it once they hear it,” he said.
