LL Cool J has confirmed 18 dates for a summer tour that will include support from Def Jam labelmate Dru Hill. The trek begins June 7 with a show at Baltimore's Camden Yards, with a number of dates still to be finalized.

LL will be out behind his latest studio set, "10," which debuted in November at No. 2 on The Billboard 200. The veteran rapper scored his biggest hit in more than six years with "Luv U Better," which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. He also appeared on Jennifer Lopez's No. 1 hit "All I Have."
