Hip-hop music only gets bigger when Grammy-nominated J. Cole takes over the 7,000-seat Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort on Saturday, July 18. In the past, Cole played nightclubs such as Drai’s at The Cromwell and the former Haze Nightclub at Aria.
Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive Tour brings special guests Big Sean, YG and Jeremih as well as Dreamville artists Bas, Cozz and Omen.
The tour is an ode to Cole’s most recent album “2014 Forest Hills Drive,” which was named for the address of his childhood home in Fayetteville, N.C., and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts. It went on to become the highest-selling hip-hop album of 2014.
Rapper Jay Z discovered Cole in 2009, followed by two mixtape releases. His debut album “Cole World: The Sideline Story,” debuted in 2011 and earned him a nomination for best new artist at the Grammy Awards.
His most popular songs include “Power Trip,” “Grew Up Fast” and “Forbidden Fruit.”
Tickets range in price from $40.75 to $200.
