J. Cole's Hometown Of Fayetteville, N.C. Honors Him With His Own Holiday
J. Cole might not have bagged the Best New Artist award at this year's Grammys, but hey, all's clearly not lost for the gifted rapper-producer. He just dropped an ill new track in "Grew Up Fast" and, oh right, he has his own holiday/celebration in his hometown in Fayetteville, N.C. The three-day event is called Dreamville Weekend and it will run this Thursday, March 1 through Saturday, March 3.
It includes speaking events, parties, and a special concert called the "Dollar And A Dream Show." If you're in the area, head to the Fillmore Charlotte this Saturday at 9 p.m. to catch Cole's performance. It's for a good cause, too, as a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Cumberland Community Foundation.
