J.Cole | Dollar & A Dream Tour
Dollar & a Dream Tour
Words & Photography by Emil Garcia
J.Cole, a name that is quickly recognized in the hip-hop world for being a lyrical genius. With 2 weeks until his sophomore debut (Born Sinner/Jun18th), Cole announced an 11 Stop tour, all at secret venues and all one dollar admission. The Stage Miami was the first stop on this tour and with an 11am release of the venue, a crowd quickly formed.
Once the doors were opened the venue filled to capacity within minutes. 99 Jamz’s own DJ Nasty provided filler music and banter until the show began. Cole approached the stage in dramatic fashion, sporting a hoodie which when he removed sparked the crowd.
Cole performed a 10 song set, and after the fire marshall turning away more that half the crowd, Cole announced that he would stay and perform a second show and hold an after party at the local Off the Hookah bar. This show was a huge success and great to attend. Enjoy the coverage.
