I first saw J. Cole perform at a tiny, intimate show in Seattle four years ago. This still stands as one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.
J. Cole is an incredibly personable artist, who I think performs best – and whose music is best tailored to – small audiences where he can peer into every member’s eyes and deep deep deep into their souls. Well, I guess fame is a double-edged sword, right? You wish the best for your darling artists at the peril of getting lost in the masses of new fans.
