Music News

J. Cole is taking a page out of classic theater for his upcoming “Forest Hills Drive” tour. Churning out a massive three-act stretch, the rapper broke each series of dates into their own themes.

Beginning on Mar. 2 with the cities that aren’t frequented by larger acts, the first act is titled “Hometown,” and features his Dreamville cohorts Bas, Cozz and Omen. Jetsetting off to Europe for the second act, Cole titled the mid-section of the run “The Journey,” which features Jhene Aiko and Pusha T. The tour then caps off with the “Hollywood” act, which hits signature venues like Madison Square Garden and the Staples Center and features Big Sean, YG and Jeremih.

The tour’s finale will be Cole’s “Homecoming,” which hits Fayetteville’s Crown Coliseum on Aug. 29.
