Through a publicist LL Cool J cancels his scheduled performance in this year's sumfest due to a family problem.
With the reason of an unspecified family problem, LL Cool J will pass the 15th Annual Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest. Not only missing the date, it was reported that the rapper will scrap off any summer dates he is scheduled to perform.
Organizers of Sumfest announced last week that LL Cool J has cancelled his July 20 gig through a rep. Published on Jamaican Observer was: "We have just been advised by LL Cool J's management that due to a family problem, LL Cool J has been forced to cancel all his summer dates and hence he will not be performing at Sumfest."
With this absence LL will also skip Essence Music Festival that takes place July 5-8 in New Orleans.
The hip-hop crooner's new album "Exit 13" will arrive September 4 and it will be his last album under Def Jam Recordings.
