LL Cool J brought down the house during the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony with his famous friends.

On Saturday evening, the 53-year-old rapper and actor celebrated his induction with a powerhouse medley that spanned his illustrious career and also featured surprise appearances from Jennifer Lopez and Eminem.

After performing solo tracks such as “Go Cut Creator Go” and “Going Back to Cali,” Eminem, 49, then walked onstage and joined LL Cool J in a rap battle-like performance of the NCIS: Los Angeles star’s song, “Rock the Bells.”

Then, LL Cool J performed his track “I’m Bad,” before Lopez, 52, took to the stage to sing her No. 1 single with the artist, “All I Have.” There, Lopez wore Dolce & Gabbana, which she paired with her own JLo Jennifer Lopez shoes and an AZ Factory coat.

The set came to a close when the inductee gave a powerful performance of his 1991 smash tune, “Mama Said Knock You Out.”

LL Cool J later received The Musical Excellence Award from Dr. Dre during the ceremony, which took place at Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse arena.

LL Cool J’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame came about over the weekend after the star had been nominated six previous times in years past.

On news that he would be inducted into the prestigious group of fellow musicians, LL Cool J said the honor was both “humbling” and “inspiring.”

“It makes me want to get in the studio and give something back for this recognition. In a weird kind of way, it makes me want to pay it forward by creating something special for people and outdo myself in a way, creatively,” the rapper explained. “That’s what it does. It makes me want to give the world a new music project.”

“I was thinking about getting a pair of Pumas, a gold chain, and writing my rhymes in my composition notebook,” he said. “And just going to the block party and just being the best rapper I could be, the best MC I could be, and just going through that process. I didn’t know about these things.”
