For his much-anticipated Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction, legendary rapper LL Cool J brought the energy in Cleveland considerably high, thanks to the night’s first major surprise guests: Eminem and Jennifer Lopez.
LL Cool J kicked off his set with a bang, going into 1987’s “Rock Around the Clock”-quoting “Go Cut Creator Go,” from Bigger and Deffer. Sporting an all-silver iridescent jumpsuit with silver sparkle accents on the cuffs and neck, as well as a gray knit hat and sunglasses, he darted and jumped on the stage like a prizefighter.
After spitting a bit of 1988’s “Going Back to Cali,” surprise guest, Detroit legend, Eminem walked onstage. What ensued was a positively incendiary collaboration on “Rock the Bells.”
