On Tuesday (April 25), LL Cool J took to social media to announce “The F.O.R.C.E. Live Tour,” which is presented by Rock The Bells and Live Nation Urban and will see The Roots, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and DJ Z-Trip providing support. “For my first arena tour in 30 years, I am bringing you the F.O.R.C.E. (Frequencies of Real Creative Energy),” he revealed in an Instagram post.

In addition to the aforementioned, plenty of other hip hop legends will be joining along on rotating dates. Queen Latifah, Rakim, Common, Method Man, Redman, Jadakiss, Big Boi, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Ice T, Juvenile, and Rick Ross are among the many names listed.

It’s been 10 years since LL Cool J released his 13th studio LP, Authentic, a 12-song body of work with collaborations alongside the likes of Snoop Dogg, Brad Paisley, and Earth, Wind & Fire. Since then, the Queens talent remained on the radar with songs like “The Hustler” with Mavado, “I’m Nice” with Murda Mook, Raekwon, and Ron Browz, and “California Lovers” with Tori Kelly.
