I was going to add this tidbit into a ‘Short N’ Sweet Clicks’ post, but I didn’t realize just how many details there are to the rumor that J. Cole is probably definitely dropping a surprise album next month. I’ll start with a clue that no one had but myself, which I reported a month or so back on Twitter: he shot the album packaging in his hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina back in September. This I know for a fact, so something is definitely in the works.
Now here’s what the interwebs have uncovered:
I saw J. Cole at House of Vans, Mike Zombie, Adrian Marcel and Jim Jones at Hot 97 and I hit a press dinner for Adrian.
Hot 97 celebrated 20 years of their annual Summer Jam concert last night and, as always, the show was INSANE!
55,000 people were in attendance at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, not to mention the TONS of people around the world that tuned in via the live stream. Of course I was there floating around backstage for the night, and I caught a lot of moments that went on behind the scenes!
