Just days after announcing his highly-anticipated album 2014 Forest Hills Drive, J. Cole will invite a few lucky fans to attend the project’s listening session at his Fayetteville, NC home. The “Who Dat” rapper announced this special occassion on Instagram Tuesday (Nov. 18), and said he repurchased his childhood house and decided to open its doors to the public. “This is the house I started rapping in at 13 years old. 2014 Forest Hills Drive. As a kid, moving into this place changed my life in so many ways,” he said. “Too many to type. Unfortunately, the house was foreclosed from my mother when I was 18 and I always dreamed of buying it back one day for closure. It’s the first house I have ever owned.”
