LL COOL J recently sat down with legendary Hip-Hop group, De La Soul for Rock The Bells radio's Influence of Hip-Hop.

While the first installment of the series featured rap legends, Mount Westmore (Too $hort, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, E-40) in the studio discussing everything from their Hip-Hop beginnings to their successful business ventures, this go-around LL's engaging discussion with his Hip-Hop peers took place at the Jean-Michel Basquiat: King Pleasure Exhibition inside the Michael Todd Room at the Palladium in Downtown LA.

Throughout the sprawling, hour-long conversation, they discussed everything from art, the influence of Hip-Hop music and culture, maintaining inspiration, and De La's plans for the future.

"It was the marriage between myself and Dave," Posdnous said about his chemistry with Trugoy The Dove, who passed away in February. "We just kind of had this like mind that really nourished each other. He amped me. I amped him."
