In an effort to encourage his fans to continue using masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19, NCIS: Los Angeles star LL Cool J took to his Instagram on Monday evening with a new masked-up video.

In the new video, LL Cool J is seen just walking down the street wearing a mask. The video’s caption reads, “You have what it takes.”

This isn’t the first time that the actor and rapper has made his stance on masks known. He caused a stir on Twitter last year when he took to the social media platform to question those who weren’t wearing masks to prevent the spread of the virus.

While sharing more details about the masks, the actor tells Rolling Stone. “Fresh is a truly talented designer who we are thrilled to be teaming up with. It is our mission at Rock The Bells to elevate Black-owned brands and designers and we couldn’t be more excited to unveil this collaboration with HENRY Masks. Stay fresh and stay safe.”
