J.Cole just added to #ImagineJustice lineup!

Yoooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

As if I was not already excited enough about this Common concert, last night he dropped a bomb on me that I was not anticipating. It’s like kismet, or fate sometimes the way things can seem to work out in my life … I almost feel like someone spies on my conversations. (Heyyyyyyyyyyyyy NSA!!)

I was talking with Antoine recently about who it was that I had left to see live. I cannot lie, I have been fortunate to see so many of my favorite artists live, in concert, or even be able to meet in person because of the industry I work in. Especially when it comes to hip hop. From Danny Brown, to Tyler, the Creator, to Kendrick, Chance, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop and so many others.

J.Cole, unfortunately, is one person that while I have bumped him constantly since Cole World dropped, I have never been able to see live. I always miss him, it always sells out, I’m always working. Whatever the case was, it was always muthatfkn something.

“I just need to see J.Cole and Vic. If I can pull that off this year I would be set. His music is so transcendent to me, he defies what you envision as a rapper. I bet his live show is insane.”

“I cried the first time I heard Forest Hills Dr.,” he replied.

“Really?”

“It was that powerful.”

Cut to tonight, as I am talking to the guru Rich Wing about some unrelated stuff, I find out that J.Cole gets announced as a special guest for the #ImagineJustice concert. I was in the kitchen, cooking dinner when I read it. My kids were helping me, whipping, mixing, chopping — but they both dropped their utensils when I yelped. It was that loud of a noise that emitted from me.

The Imagine Justice concert, featuring Common, J.Cole and more special guests, is only 10 days away. It is a free concert meant to raise awareness for the Schools Not Prisons campaign, taking place on the California State Capital steps. While this is outdoors, there will still be a capacity limit, so please make sure to register. Do not let your laziness be the reason you miss the concert.

Because I will say I told you so.

Trust me.
