LL COOL J has wasted no time rescheduling his upcoming F.O.R.C.E. Tour, providing new dates just a few weeks after announcing he was postponing the star-studded trek.

Dubbed the “ultimate Hip Hop mash-up tour,” LL will headline alongside The Roots, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and DJ Z-Trip. Each stop will be filled with a range of Hip Hop royalty special guests that include icons such as Salt-N-Pepa, Rick Ross, Queen Latifah, Big Boi, De La Soul, Jadakiss, Method Man, Redman, Rakim, Common and more.

In an Instagram video posted last month, the legendary rapper announced the tour’s delay, explaining he wanted to give his fans an “unforgettable” experience.

“I have to give my fans an experience that is unforgettable,” he wrote in the caption. “I want to make sure everything is done right, and in order to do that, I had to change some things up.”

Back in April, LL joined Questlove and Black Thought of The Roots on Instagram Live to talk about what fans could expect from their The F.O.R.C.E. Live tour.

“You’ve done arena tours before. I’ve done arena tours before. But I’ve never really felt like they were mine,” Quest shared. “They were always, like, festivals, or opening up for other acts. This is super major, man.”

“You know what I’m excited about, Quest?” LL replied. “When the first snare hits, like…it ain’t stoppin’. We goin’ hard. This is going to be a show unlike anything … I haven’t done an arena tour in many years, you know what I’m sayin’? And I put all my energy into making this thing right. This is like everything we’ve ever done on super-roids. So it’s going to be way more than you can imagine, you know what I’m sayin’?”



“I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel,” said Questlove. “But, I’m also trying to give people something that they’ve never seen before…the way we’re formatting the show, it’s going to be like the Grammys performance on steroids.” Questlove’s comments were in reference to the star-studded Hip Hop tribute he produced at this year’s Grammys to celebrate the culture’s 50th Anniversary.
