LL Cool J can rap, he can act and he's pretty good at hosting the Grammys. But his artistry has its limits. He absolutely can’t draw.

The big reveal happened for a global audience on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where LL joined guests Big Sean and actor Rose Byrne for a game of Pictionary. When it came to LL Cool J's turn to illustrate “tattoo”, his attempt was nothing short of an epic fail. He did warn everyone at the top of the show. “I can’t draw at all. I’ll get that out there." 

Big Sean Scores His First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200

It’s a good thing he’s got a sense of humor, because needed it when the entire audience laughed at his illustration technique. The funny stuff starts at 3.30 minutes.

Turns out Big Sean can wield a pen. And he can rap. His latest album Dark Sky Paradise bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in March.
