LL Cool J appeared on the PBS series “Finding Your Roots,” where the rapper made a shocking discovery, Vibe reports.

The 48-year-old, who was raised by his grandparents, wanted to dig into his ancestry to find out his family’s journey from freedom to slavery.

This is so fitting for #blackhistorymonth.

During the research process, he found out that the woman, who he thought was his maternal mother, was actually adopted by his grandparents.

“This doesn’t change how I feel about the people that raised me,” the NCIS: Los Angeles actor said of his family.

“I have more love and respect for them than I ever did.”

The episode will air on February 16th, right before the “Walk Of Fame” inductee hosts the Grammy Awards.
