J.Cole Sold Out SOB’s

I really wish I was going to this show, I just feel like that’s what I should be doing tonight. Instead, I’m The District writing about some shit I’ll be doing in later this week. You win some, you lose some. Anyway, he sold out his show at the legendary SOB’s, which means a lot to the dude because he saw Kanye there for the first time in the Fall of ’03. It reminds me of the first time I saw Kanye live at Homecoming ’03. I remember hearing him rap here and there from ’01-’03, and having mixed feelings about what he was doing on the mic. I could see the potential though. Then, me and Aaron saw the “Through The Wire” video the day before I left for college and were blown away. Nullus. Anyway, I started college that Fall looking forward to College Dropout; when he randomly appears at my first Homecoming. Not even as a headliner, he was kind of added value to Juelz Santana and the members of State Property who were allowed to leave the state of Pennsylvania. Kanye shows up rockin’ this army jacket, performed “Through The Wire”, “Wow”, and what would become “Gold Digger”. What happened? Fuckin’ idiots booed him because they didn’t know who he was. 4 months later, College Dropout came out, and well…y’all know the story. That album will always be important to me because it came out my Freshman year, and created a new lane in the game for artists such as J.Cole. I suppose that’s why he and I see eye to eye on some things….

Below is his response to Jae Millz’ remarks about the XXL Freshman 10, and the rest of his tour dates.

He visits my Alma Mater on April 8th, and his own on the 24th. Do I feel an article coming on?


  1. The cover does have some horrible ass rappers on it, I mean Big sean is in my bottom 5. However, I never heard Vado but I’m sure he’s ass. Jae Mills is not fucking with J. Cole at all, J. Cole probably like the 3rd best rapper right now.

    • Jae Millz has been in the game for a while now and has nothing to show for it. By alligning himself with Young Money, he basically screamed “I’m a dick rider”. No dude wearing an @tunechi t-shirt who hasn’t dropped an album and never will can say anything about anyone on that cover. All of those dudes have some type of viral buzz…he has nothing

  2. cosign your comment.. the shirt.. smh.. he will be back.. in months.. but the response.. classic.. Millz dont want it..and honestly.. he not even on his radar.. doubt Millz could sell out SOB’s..
