LL Cool J Launches Classic Hip-Hop Radio Channel ‘Rock the Bells’ on SiriusXM
Back in 1985, LL Cool J released his debut album, Radio, on Def Jam Records as just a teenager, which helped craft the lane for rap to move into mainstream consumption. Three decades later, Radio leads the New York native into earning his own Rock The Bells Radio hip-hop station on SiriusXM.
The rapper launched the new radio station on Wednesday (March 28). "If you wanna be a fly on the wall in the world of classic Hip Hop, SiriusXM’s ‘Rock the Bells Radio’ is for you,” the Kennedy Center honoree said. "It’s where fans can come and be immersed in the music, the culture, the energy and the history of classic Hip Hop. We’re gonna have great artists, legendary artists, lyricists, superstars, sex symbols. This is the place to be if you want uncut, raw, pure, classic Hip Hop, but there’s one catch, it's strictly for OGs."
On Wednesday night, the 50-year-old celebrated the launch of his radio station at a retro Los Angeles roller skating rink for a night out of fun with friends and family. Comedian Tiffany Haddish, actor Anthony Anderson, legendary West Coast MC Snoop Dogg and other notable guests made their way to the event to congratulate the "I Need Love" artist on his accomplishment.
