A Hip-Hop Food Court Experience Is Coming to LL Cool J’s Inaugural Rock the Bells Festival

Hosted by Bun B, hip-hop food court experience “Trill Mealz Food Court” will be held at the LL Cool J-led Rock the Bells Festival next month.

Music fans will get a taste of hip-hop at LL Cool J‘s inaugural Rock the Bells Festival next month. The festival will host the first-ever hip-hop food court experience with “Trill Mealz Food Court,” headlined by Houston rap veteran and Trill Burgers co-founder Bun B.

Also featured in the experience is Nas’s Sweet Chick, Mia X‘s Whip Them Pots, E-40‘s Goon With the Spoon, Jadakiss & Styles P’s Juices for Life and Ghostface Killah‘s Killah Koffee.

“Food and Hip-Hop are both forms of entertainment and self expression,” said LL Cool J in a statement. “Food has always been a theme within Hip-Hop and are uniquely connected. Hosting the Trill Mealz Food Court at the Rock The Bells Festival at Hip-Hop’s birthplace of New York City, allows us to really connect with the community and create a fully immersive way to experience Hip-Hop.”

“For the first time ever, I will be curating a hip-hop food court at Rock The Bells Festival. Something that has never happened anywhere in the face of the world,” added Bun B. “For me it’s the food now.  I still make music. I still perform, but this is my passion and it still keeps me in the culture.”

The day-long festival will be held on August 6th in LL’s hometown of Queens at Forest Hills Stadium. Performers include Ice CubeLil KimRick RossDigable PlanetsThe Diplomats, Fat Joe & Remy MaScarfaceTrinaN.O.R.E. and more.
