LL Cool J appears as himself in a scene halfway through the film where he auditions for Rick and the other Krush Groove management team. In that scene, it is presumed that LL Cool J is an unknown. However, near the beginning of the film, when Sheila E. is performing "A Love Bizarre" in a club, the name "LL Kool J" (sic) can be seen written on the chalkboard behind her on stage. The chalkboard is still seen during other performances before LL Cool J makes his appearance. See more »

Krush Groove is one of the best rap musicals ever made. The film starring Sheila E.,Run-DMC ,The Fat Boys & Kurtis Blow has great musical numbers and a good storyline.It's one of the first movies I can recall seeing in a theater and I own the vhs tape. Look for cameo's by LL Cool J & New Edition in this classic flick.
