J. Cole almost disappointed his New York fans when he didn’t announce a date in the Tri-State area for his “What Dreams May Come Tour” last fall. But that’s not like Cole now, is it? Of course he wouldn’t let his fans down, announcing in November that he’d be coming to the city to spend his birthday at Madison Square Garden with about 6,000 Dreamvillians as part of the second leg of his world tour.
Last night (Jan. 28), Cole celebrated his born day in a big way, bringing along some friends—like his Roc Nation father Jay Z and his west side brother, fresh off the Grammy stage, Kendrick Lamar. The show was epic to say the least and if you missed it, then wow, you really missed out. But thankfully for you, we’re here to re-cap 10 highlights from the show to try to make up for your misfortune. —Samantha Kennedy
