J. Cole hits the stage in Philly for the Jay-Z sponsored festival, Made In America. He starts off with a dedication to Mike Brown, the teen killed in Missouri, by the Ferguson officer, Darren Wilson. J. Cole plays police brutality clips on the big screen while singing the lyrics to his Be Free track.
He continues his outdoor performance for the large crowd for about an hour, giving us hit after hit. He brought a live band, DJ, background dancers and singers. It looks like Cole has stepped his performance game up. He’s an entertainer now, not just a rap artist.
