LL was in a class that included athletes like Channing Tatum, Lakers player Pau Gasol, and LA Clippers player Chris Paul.

The “Rock The Bells” rapper Tweeted with excitement as he was in class.

Both LL Cool J and Channing signed up to take classes with Professor Anita Elberse at Harvard’s Business School of Executive Education.
