LL Cool J + Eddie Van Halen Are Clearly Collaborating on Something [PHOTOS]
We got a little jolt of excitement for LL Cool Jâs new album âAuthenticâ when he hosted the Grammys back in February. This will be LL’s first new release since 2008âs âExit 13,â and we kinda feel like itâs about time.
We’re also getting little Twitter teasers that indicate that none other than Eddie Van Halen may show up on the album, too.
Today, March 14, the pic above popped up in both LL’s and Eddie’s timelines. And just a few days ago, the guitar legend shared this pic of him and LL hard at work in the studio. So something is clearly going down.

If Eddie does do some work on the new album, it wouldnât be the first time his magic crossed genres and spruced up a hip-hop tune. In 1988, Tone-Loc sampled âJaimeâs Cryinâ in his hit âWild Thing,â and if you appreciate classic rock and the ’80s even a little bit, you already know that EVH played the guitar solo in Michael Jacksonâs defining hit of the era, âBeat It.â
Keep teasing us, boys. We kinda like it.
