Multihyphenate LL COOL J (acronym for “Ladies Love Cool James”) is a global musical icon that blasted onto the scene from Queens, New York when he was only 16 years-old. Since then, LL COOL J has garnered the uncontested respect of the music industry, multimillions of fans movie box office, and dedicated viewers in front of the TV screens. LL COOL J has many chart-topping hits over the years including “Mama Said Knock You Out”, “I Need Love”, “Phenomenon” and “Around The Way Girl”.
In March 2018, LL launched his own SiriusXM classic Hip-Hop channel entitled “LL COOL J’s Rock The Bells Radio.” The channel features a wide range of classic Hip-Hop content, music, interviews, and in-depth retrospectives curated, programmed, and presented by the award-winning artist. Since founding the radio station, Rock The Bells has developed into a full-fledged company that has become the preeminent voice for classic and timeless Hip-Hop. Rock The Bells focuses on content, commerce, and experiences that honor the culture and the core elements of Hip-Hop – MCs, DJs, break-dancers, graffiti artists, and more. Driven by the past, inspired by the now, and energized by the future, Rock The Bells is the bridge between OGs and those inspired by their groundbreaking influences on the culture.
