J. Cole, the Grammy nominated and platinum-selling rapper, has announced his 2015 Forest Hills Drive Tour featuring Big Sean, with special guests YG and Jeremih. Also joining the lineup will be Dreamville artists Bas, Cozz and Omen. Dubbed as the Hollywood leg of the 2015 Forest Hills Drive Tour, this announcement comes right on the heels of the nearly sold out Hometown leg of the tour that will be visiting cities that Cole feels he's missed in the past - with dates beginning in March. With the addition of his recently announced European tour featuring Pusha T and Jhene Aiko, Cole will be logging in what might be the most miles for any artist this year with a total of 65 dates from March to August.
J. Cole's most recent album 2014 Forest Hills Drive debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts and went on to become the highest-selling hip hop album of 2014. Receiving acclaim from the likes of NPR, Complex, The Los Angeles Times and others, the album name is derived from the address of his actual childhood home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It serves as a meditation on the value of love relative to worldly success. The 2014 Forest Hills Drive house marked a change for a young Cole and it spawned his path in rap.
