Cole World Heats Up
By Jewel Goodly & Roni Adar – Staff Writers
Rapper and singer J. Cole is scheduled to perform at the Assembly Hall on Tuesday April 17, 2012 at 7:30 for his Cole World tour. The ticket prices range from $65-$230. BIG K.R.I.T will be opening for J. Cole. J. Cole’s tour producers recently announced that as a favor to singer and performer, Drake, who had a concert at the Assembly Hall in the fall, there will be some special performances at the J. Cole concert at Assembly Hall.
Shortly after, it was leaked that the special guests would be Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj who will make an appearance at the concert and perform a collaboration song with J. Cole. When Drake performed in the fall at the Assembly Hall (his last show before the Take Care tour ended) he promised thousands of fans he would come again with some of his Young Money family. Although Drake cannot make it with his “family” he is sending the two as a thank you to the Champaign- Urbana fans.
When asked if she was a J. Cole fan, Centennial sophomore, Remy Miller, responded “I am honestly in love with him.” Miller is excited that Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj are coming but she was sold at J. Cole. Randy Truffa, Centennial junior, has been a fan of J. Cole ever since his friend from Fayetteville (J. Cole’s hometown) introduced him to his music a few summers back. Truffa was unsure about attending the concert at first, but once he heard that Minaj and Wayne were coming, he was sold! After the performers’ names were leaked, tickets sales for the concert drastically increased because the two performers are always in high demand. Get your tickets today to see BIG K.R.I.T, J. Cole, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj! April fools!
