The rapper's youngest daughter channels adulthood in a slinky black bustier dress proving she's no longer her parents' baby.


It’s high school graduation day for LL Cool J’s youngest daughter, Nina Simone Smith and she was certainly treading on adulthood when she shared photos from her big day. 

Dressed in a black bustier mini dress and matching strappy heels, Nina was a picture of a high school siren about to embark on a night of partying. She wore her blue graduation cap as she struck a pose on top of a couch in what appeared to be a balcony of a high rise building.  No doubt she deserves to celebrate as she takes a giant step closer to college life.  


Her post earned lots of congratulatory messages from her followers as well as praises for her fashionable sense. One fan even wrote, 

“Hey @riri, come collect your new model”

Born to the famous rapper and his wife of 22 years Simone Smith, Nina is the youngest of the couple’s four children who also include daughters Najee Laurent and Samaria Leah Wisdom and only son Todd Eugene.  As the baby of the family, her mother couldn’t help but gush over her daughter’s latest achievement, as she reminisced the past.  In an Instagram post Simone shared on graduation day, she poured her heart out looking back at Nina’s younger years with both pride and joy.


“Today was bittersweet for me. Our baby @ninabandzz the baby of the Smith bunch is officially a high school graduate. Nina Beanz we are so PROUD of you!! Raising you has been a pleasure. You spoke in full sentences before you were 2 years old. You always woke up singing and went to bed singing. You walked better than me in high heels at the age of 4. Sweet, Smart & Sassy. In a couple of months you’ll be off to college to focus on your craft. Remember to always stay PRAYED up and talk to GOD. Work hard. Surround yourself with winners babygirl YOU ARE BLESSED. YOU ARE A STAR.”

With college just around the corner, no doubt Nina will continue to make her parents proud. It’s not clear what she’ll be majoring in or if she intends to take the path his father took but one thing’s for sure, she has a whole new world waiting for her out there.
