Eddie Van Halen, the lead guitarist and co-founder of rock band Van Halen, may be reaching out to one legendary hip-hopper for a collaboration.

A photo surfaced of LL Cool J sitting in the studio with Van Halen today. The image has fans wondering what could be going on between the two musically.

Whatever it may be, it seems Van Halen is definitely down to support LL as he tweeted the photo of the two together with the caption, “Authentic 4.30.13," which is the release date of the rapper's 13th album.

In the meantime, LL Cool J is down in Austin, Texas, for SXSW's music festival. He will be headlining the Doritos #BoldStage event on Thursday night. Fans not able to be in the crowd to see the show can watch it online as it will be live-streamed on the Doritos Facebook page and on the company's mobile phone app.
