Smith is the sixth studio album by American hip hop recording artist LL Cool J, released on November 21, 1995 by Def Jam. The album has been certified Double Platinum in the US by the RIAA. Mr. Smith was produced by Rashad Smith, Chyskillz, Chad Eliott, Trackmasters and Easy Mo Bee. Artistes such as The Emotions, Monica and Foxy Brown also made guest appearances on the album.

There are a couple of hard moments on Mr. Smith, but the album is at its most successful when he concentrates on his seductive, romantic side. Smith isn't a perfect record - there are too many slack moments for it to qualify as one of his best - but it proves that LL Cool J remained vital a decade after his debut.
