LL COOL J On A Possible Second Leg of The F.O.R.C.E. Tour and Being Able To Tour Without New Music

LL COOL J's F.O.R.C.E. Tour, which he describes as a traveling mixtape, is coming to an end. The tour featured a varying line up that included LL COOL J featuring Z-Trip with the Roots and DJ Jazzy Jeff, Rakim, Salt -N- Pepa, Common, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Bone Thugs -n- Harmony, Goodie Mob and various surprise guests.

The final stop of the tour is in Boston on November 19. Rock The Bells caught up with LL in D.C. to discuss the tour.

"I wanted to show that you can continue to do high level performances and arenas and big shows at anytime in your career," he explained. "Its a matter of you loving your craft and your fans, and getting out there and playing for them. We proved that with big shows all over the country, and it's an amazing feeling. Now there's conversations about a second leg. I don't know — I'll think about it."

The "I Need Love" MC shared the differences in headlining arena tours almost four decades ago to now.

"The difference is I didn't have as many songs," he shared. "People say that I have all this energy, and they speak about the shows from a long time ago. What they don't realize is that I may have had three or four albums then, now I have a thousand albums. It's different because I have more music. The strange thing about having a music career, which is very different from most things, is that the longer you're successful there's more work to do as you mature. So you're sixteen with one song and everybody says you have energy, but it's one song! Let's put some of these guys out there and give 'em ten or fourteen albums, and let's see what they do."
