Although there are many other rappers who are blowing up from the local area in Fayetteville, J. Cole is obviously the main guy. The past few years have seen J. Cole firmly establish himself as one of the game’s top emcees. Now, with his position, J. Cole, is opening doors for others.
His semi-surprise album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, is dominating the industry, right now. This album prompted J. Cole to take ownership of the actual address, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, his childhood home. With this, he has opened a shelter for abused women in his hometown.
J. Cole is now preparing the Forest Hills Drive tour, which is taking him throughout Europe in the early spring and then back into the US, later in the spring. The tour dates were released to the internet by J. Cole this morning. He is taking these dates with his own artists, Bas, Cozz, and Omen, but also Jhene Aiko, Pusha T, YG, Jeremih, and Big Sean.
