LL Cool J Accept Key To The City At Rock The Bells Festival

LL Cool J was celebrated and given the key to Queens, New York, during the 2022 Rock the Bells Festival at the Forest Hills Stadium on 8/6/22.


New York City Council Adrienne Adams commemorated the occasion acknowledging LL’s impact, longevity, and influence in hip-hop.

“Hollis, Queens, was represented today at Rock The Bells as the NYC Council celebrated a true Queens legend, the one, and only LL Cool J!” Adams expressed in a tweet following the event. “It was an honor to present him with a proclamation acknowledging his undeniable impact on Hip Hop and popular culture.”

According to Rock the Bells, a percentage of the event’s ticket sales will be used for the 52,000-square-foot Universal Hip-Hop Museum coming soon to the Bronx. The upcoming museum, which recently received a $5.5 million investment, will be the “first state-chartered educational museum dedicated to celebrating” all aspects of the storied culture and genre.
