Updated: Oct 8, 2023

LL Cool J's Rock The Bells 2023 The F.O.R.C.E. Tour just wrapped its last show at the Kia Forum in LA. The 24-stop celebration of Hip-Hop featured shows all over the USA from Florida to Ohio to Colorado. As a DJ and Hip-Hop lover myself, I enjoy watching the great DJ's cut it up behind the turntables. Take a look at DJ Z-Trip's set from the Chicago Stop of 2023 The F.O.R.C.E. Tour:

About DJ Z-Trip:

Z-Trip is often referred to as a young Rick Rubin. His roots are based in Hip Hop, but he covers and loves all music styles. Considered by many as the godfather of mash-ups, his style of mixing and producing reaches way beyond that. Z-Trip received the award for America’s Best DJ and still remains on the top 10 lists year after year. He has collaborated with some of the very best to ever do it: Nas, Bassnectar, Public Enemy, DJ Shadow, Rakim, Shepard Fairey, Talib Kweli and many others. Learn more about DJ Z-Trip here:
