Although LL Cool J already has a lot on his plate with his role on NCIS: Los Angeles and the promotion of his April 30th release, Authentic, he has taken on the role of narrator a new documentary to air April 27 on CBS, titled Mayweather. The doc is said to be a revealing one-hour look at the life of undefeated world boxing champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather.

In a press release, producer Ross Greenburg says Mayweather is, “an honest portrayal of the controversial and charismatic best pound-for-pound boxer in the world.” The doc will also highlight Mayweather’s latest opponent, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero.

 

In addition to narrating the documentary, LL will premiere one of his new songs off Authentic, “We’re The Greatest,” in Mayweather. “We’re The Greatest” features guitar work from legendary axe man Eddie Van Halen, who Cool J heralds as “one of the greatest guitar players that ever lived.”

Speaking about the song, LL told Radio.com, “It’s not necessarily about me and Eddie, per se. It’s about people that kinda get tossed aside, forgotten about, kicked down, and then they make a comeback in life and they regain that ground that they had lost, and then some.”

Mayweather will air Saturday, April 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, just three days prior to the release of  Authentic and one week prior to the Showtime Pay Per View event, May Day: Mayweather Vs. Guerrero, on May 4.
