LL COOL J Rock founded The Bells in 2018 with a focus on elevating hip hop culture and elements. The brand uses different content, merchandise, merchandise, and experiences, such as an upcoming inaugural festival, to remind fans of where hip-hop is.
The brand name comes from LL COOL J’s 1985 song “Rock The Bells” and the rap icon had to reclaim ownership after another company used the name for their own festival in the mid-2000s.
in July, LL Cool J took to social media to explain why he founded Rock The Bells. “I founded @RockTheBells because I believe hip-hop culture can’t be thrown away,” he wrote on Twitter. “I also think real art/artists don’t have an expiration date.”
