J. Cole: hip-hop's latest breakthrough sensation
Grammy-nominated rapper J. Cole has already conquered the charts in his native US and now the UK is falling for his famously slick charms too. The protégé of superstar music mogul Jay-Z, J. Cole made his name through collaborating with the great and the good of the hip-hop world before scoring massive hits of his own with acclaimed debut mixtapes The Come Up and The Warm Up, and four consecutive US number one albums (including 2017 work 4 Your Eyez Only).
To mark that success, Cole announced the 4 Your Eyez Only world tour in 2017, and after again thrilling crowds with a brilliant set of classics and new material during his North American and European gigs, J. Cole entertained his legions of fans across the UK.

J. Cole: American star looking to break UK and European charts
Jermaine Cole grew up in a tough area of North Carolina and was raised on an eclectic musical diet of hip-hop, rock and folk. He started rapping at an early age, while excelling at school; qualifying for a college scholarship. While attending St John's University in New York he camped outside hip-hop mogul Jay Z's office every day until the iconic artist accepted his demo tape.
The burgeoning rapper's lyrical talent was eventually recognised, and he was soon signed to the legendary Roc Nation label, leading to a spot on 2009's Blueprint 3 LP on the track "A Star Is Born". A year later, the young rapper released his own platinum selling single "Work Out" before his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story (2011) went gold after selling almost 300,000 copies in its first week. A prolific collaborator, J. Cole has also worked with the likes of Janet Jackson, Beyonce and Childish Gambino.
His next two releases – 2013's Born Sinner and 2014's Forest Hills Drive – were well-received by critics, while both certified platinum in the US. The latter earned J. Cole his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album and his fourth studio album 4 Your Eyez Only was certified platinum in April 2017. Buy J. Cole tickets now at StubHub and catch him live on his next UK tour.
