J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour came to an end in historic fashion last night. After five months of touring, Jermaine returned to his hometown and treated his Fayetteville, North Carolina family with a show they’ll never forget.
Big Homie Hov used his time to rip through hits like “PSA,” “FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt,” and “Clique” with Big Sean. The “Greatest of All Time” also took a moment to let the crowd know how much Cole put into the show.
“A month and a half ago, he’s like, ‘You ain’t never did anything for me. I just need one thing. I need you to come through my hometown and show love. I want you to know, he thought about this night for years. He planned this night, and I hope it’s going exactly how you like.” [“It’s perfect.” – J. Cole]
Drake ran through the 6 with his woes, before praising J. Cole for being one of the most genuine people in the industry.
“I just want to let you know… this shit that we do, this music business, is tough man. It’s tough to meet good people, real people. I want to let you know something about this guy right here. This one of the realest, greatest, most genuine, talented motherfuckers I ever met in my life.” Drake said before turning to Cole to further extend the love. “This my brother. I wanna be at your wedding one day – you understand that? You’re family.”
From there, Drake blessed the crowd with some new bars, then continued to pour salt in Meek’s wounds by closing with “Back to Back” – with the crowd reciting it word for word.
