A modern day rap titan.
Four albums into his career and North Carolina artist J. Cole can claim four Billboard number ones and a Grammy nomination, not to mention his indisputable position as a modern day rap titan.
His unique brand of socially aware hip hop has struck a chord around the world since his breakout single 'Work Out' was released way back in 2011. It all started for the rapper in early 2007 with the release of his debut mixtape, The Come Up. He's since signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation imprint and continued to release countless hits, from 'Nobody's Perfect' with Missy Elliot to his most recent chart-topper, 'Deja Vu'.
4 Your Eyes Only is J.Cole's best album yet, showcasing his insightful lyricism and soulful production. After every one of the album's ten tracks charted on the US Billboard 100, Cole announced a celebratory 57-city world tour that includes two shows at Auckland's Vector Arena. See a future hip hop great at the beginning of what's sure to be a very long career.
