J. Cole Announces Massive World Tour

    In six days, J. Cole heads out on an absolutely huge international tour that kicks off in Canada. It then moves through the U.S. until late in October when the Fayetteville, N.C. native takes to the U.K. for some gigs with Tinie Tempah. Cole has plenty of solo U.K. shows, though, along with a bunch more throughout the rest of Europe. The only concern we have is whether or not he decides to let us know about two weeks into the tour that his debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story, isn’t actually dropping Sept. 27.
