LL Cool J Going Back To Cali — And A Lot Of Other Places

Tour kicks off with five Florida dates, beginning June 20 in Miami.

LL Cool J is going to start tuning up his live performance skills this week.

Rap's self-proclaimed greatest of all time is heading out on his first tour

in years, starting June 20 at Miami's Billboard Live. No release date has

been set for the Queens-born rapper's 10th album, Ten (see "LL Cool J Turns Focus Back To 'Ladies Love' on

Ten"), according to Def Jam, but his other job as an actor

will see him in the comedy "Deliver Us From Eva" in September.
