LL is in a collaborative mood these days. You probably caught his Grammys-closing performance of new single Whaddup, featuring Public Enemy, Tom Morello and Travis Barker. His forthcoming album Authentic, due April 30, reportedly features collaborations with Eddie Van Halen, Kendrick Lamar, Jennifer Lopez and others. Now THAT'S an all-star tour we'd pay big bucks to see.
