It was BIG NEWS in 2013, and the Deseret News wrote an article about it:

American rapper tweets inpsirational quote from an LDS prophet

In it, they wrote:

James Todd Smith, more commonly known as American rapper LL Cool J, often tweets inspirational messages and quotes. But one stuck out to many members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Monday night.

The popular rapper tweeted, “Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds,” attributing the quote to Gordon B. Hinckley, president of the LDS church from 1995-2008.

Several members of the LDS Church responded to LL Cool J’s tweet.

Well, turnabout is fair play, right?

But seriously, it is Berkeley, so maybe this is the Morm norm there.
