After six nominations, LL Cool J was finally inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame. He gave a contemporary rapper the opportunity of a lifetime when he welcomed Eminem on stage to perform “Rock The Bells” at LL’s induction ceremony on Saturday night.
Eminem gushed over the performance on Twitter. Shady said that the performance would’ve made his teenage self proud. He also offered his congratulations to the hip-hop pioneer.
“‘Cause there’s a 10 to 1 chance that you might get smacked! ROCK THE BELLS with @llcoolj @rockhall airs 11/20 on HBO. It was such an honor, & 16 y.o. Marshall is so proud- congrats L!”
LL Cool J wasn’t done with the big name guests with Slim Shady. He also invited Jennifer Lopez to revisit their 2002 collaboration, “All I Have.” The rest of the set was filled with all-time classics from one of the masters of the genre.
He has earned two Grammy’s during his prolific career. He also had a #1 Billboard album with his 1987 album Bigger and Deffer. The Queens rapper has been releasing hits since 1985 and finally received his deserved recognition for being such a huge contributor to hip-hop music and culture.
Eminem has been busy with a lot of projects in addition to his performance at the Rock Hall. He’s rumored to be collaborating soon with Drake. He’s also got his own restaurant in his native Detroit. 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By was Eminem’s tenth Billboard 200 #1 album.
