Happy Birthday, J. Cole! Rapper Drops Live Album in Celebration
J. Cole is celebrating his 31st birthday today, but the Roc Nation rapper isn't interested in receiving gifts. Instead, Cole has offered something to his fans: a live album. He dropped Forest Hills Drive: Live on his birthday (Jan. 28)
The project is a live version of his acclaimed album 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The performances are from his concert last year in his native Fayetteville, North Carolina--the same show that was featured in the HBO special, “Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming,” that aired earlier this month.
J. Cole's concert special was well-received by critics and fans, and he made an appearance at MLKNow in New York City on Martin Luther King Day last week. The thoughtful rhymer has been having a pretty stellar 2016 thus far, and a live album is a perfect way to say "Thank you" to his loyal fans.
Forest Hills Drive: Live features the live version of 12 tracks from the original album and earlier J. Cole hits “Lights Please,” “In The Morning,” and “Nobody’s Perfect."
