Roc Nation emcee J. Cole will be sharing the stage with one of his contemporaries, Drake. Both proteges of Jay-Z and Lil Wayne respectively have announced that they are planned to tour together early next year at several confirmed European dates. Those dates presently include the following:
January 7 at Hammersmith Apollo, London
January 8 at Hammersmith Apollo, London
January at Apollo, Manchester
January 14 at Birmingham
In April, Cole told HipHopDX about fans perceived rivalry between he and Drake. “It doesn’t really come from the publications, it comes from the people,” he said. “Like the fans are so eager to see some shit like that, they live for shit like that, which is cool, I understand where it’s coming from. You can’t just make up a beef man, that’s just not how this thing works.”
While Drake’s Thank Me Later continues to be a draw on the charts, J. Cole is working on his own debut which could potentially be released by the date. It was announced earlier this week that he will give fans his latest mixtape on November 12.
