He’s a rapper, actor and all-around entertainer, but now LL Cool J can add designer to that list.
It was recently announced that the rap legend dropped his Rock the Bells clothing line, which includes hoodies, T-shirts and sweatshirts that pay tribute to hip-hop’s yesteryear.
One of the T-shirts, for example, has an image of a flyer from a 1987 LL Cool J show. A hoodie has a throwback link chain painted around the neck.
There’s also a limited edition Rock the Bells x Roots varsity jacket, designed after the same jacket that LL wore when he launched his old-school rap station Rock the Bells Radio on SiriusXM.
The title “Rock the Bells” derives from the rapper’s famous single from the ’80s.
“When I recorded ‘Rock the Bells’ in 1986, my heroes were people who embraced and lived the four elements of Hip Hop: Graffiti, DJ’s, Breakdancing, and MC’s,” said LL in a statement. “Drop 1 honors that spirit, while looking through the lens of current culture.”
The now–52-year-old grew to fame in 1985 after he appeared in the film “Krush Groove,” and he dropped his debut album “Radio” in that same year.
Plus, on the big and small screen, LL has been tremendously successful and currently co-stars in CBS’ “NCIS: Los Angeles,” which has been on the air since 2009.
As for the Rock the Bells clothing line, prices range from $45 for the T-shirts to $595 for the Rock the Bells x Roots varsity jacket.
