No one likes to see their family, friends, or coworkers falling on hard times. It's difficult. The automatic impulse is to help.

Recently, LL Cool J saw a video of a former co-star begging for crack, and he's now launched an effort to find her to help out.

LL Cool J may have started out in music, but after appearing as a rapper in a few films, he made his way over to non-music films as well. While he's released 15 albums, he's appeared in more than 20 films and appeared in many TV series as well.

It was in one of those series, In the House, that he starred with Maia Campbell along with Debbie Allen, Kim Wayans, and Alfonso Ribeiro. It was on the air from 1995 through 1999, appearing first on NBC, then on UPN, and finally in syndication.

Over this past weekend, a video surfaced of Campbell begging for crack. She appears in just a bra and panties and is pumping gas for an Atlanta rapper while he films. She tells him, "I want some crack."

LL Cool J posted to Instagram, "If anyone has a contact on Maia pls let me know."

It's known that Campbell is bipolar. Additionally, she mentions in the video about a guy raping her "like Cosby."

And along with looking to help his former co-star, LL Cool J is also questioning the guy who shot the video.

"Instead of pulling out your phone and filming someone who's obviously having trouble, maybe lend a helping hand? A kind word?" He posted to Twitter.

Campbell, now 40, has a decent amount of credits to her name but hasn't been seen acting since 2007 when she appeared in Sorority Sister Slaughter, although in 2012 she appeared in a celebrity edition of Iyanla: Fix My Life.

Through all that, she also attended Spelman College in Atlanta and was married to Elias Gutierrez from 1998 through 2002.
