A report on LL's appearance on BET's "Rap City: Tha Bassment" - July 18

LL Cool J appeared today on the popular BET hiphop show, "Rap City: Tha Bassment" with host BIG Tigger. The appearance was in promotion of the new Violator Management Compilation album, "Violator: The Album V2.0," due in stores on July 24th.

Also appearing with LL was fellow Violator artiste and legendary hiphop pioneer DJ Red Alert. Alert is featured on the new compilation an is set to deliver his highly anticipated new debut album and documentary, on Loud Records entitled "DJ Red Alert Presents: Beats, Rhymes & Battles: Vol.1" due Aug. 7th, 2001. The album features two classic battle songs by LL Cool J. They are "Jack The Ripper," the ultimate diss song to Kool Moe Dee and "To Da Break Of Dawn," where LL disses Ice T, MC Hammer and Kool Moe Dee and others.

In this promotional appearance, LL wore a light yellow dorag over a black skullcap, light shaded eyeglasses, a black top Platinum Fubu "Fat Albert" shirt, and dark grey jeans with yellow Timbalands.

Over short and humorous discussions, LL, DJ Red Alert and host BIG Tigger exchanged conversations about violence in music, battle beefs between MCs, family and thug aggression.

LL revealed that his last movie flick, "Kingdom Come" made a sizeable profit and tripled it's production cost at the Box Office earlier this year. The movie is set to embark on a worldwide distribution since it has nearly completed it's US Box Office run. A DVD/Video release should hit US stores later this year. On other movie news, LL said that his next film, "Rollerball" is set back to early 2002 due to the need to incorporate additional special effects. He commented that he felt that it was needed and should make for a better film. In a quick take on his new upcoming album with Swizz Beatz, he said that he felt good about the early production, but didn't disclose any details.

Suprisingly, there was no freestyle from LL, BIG Tigger or fellow new Violator artistes Da Franchise Crew (who appeared at the end of the show). This was due in part to the laid back approach interview style of Tigger, who showed no inclination to question LL indepth. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed. LL was very happy, humorous, exchanging comedic jabs and seems to be in his element. No doubt, due to his recent and successful exploits on his European expedition.

"Violator: The Album V2.0" is a follow-up to the successful platinum selling debut "Violator: The Album," that featuring the Grammy Award nominated single "Vivrant Thing" by Q-Tip. The new album features Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, Method Man, Mobb Deep, Noreaga and Capone, Missy, and Ja Rule amongst others...

"Rap City: Tha Bassment" will host Mobb Deep (Prodigy and Havoc), and CNN (Capone and Noreaga) on, July 19th, 2001. This is also in promotion of the new Violator compilation.
