ARTS Pick: J.Cole

UVA’s Program Council welcomes students back with a performance by platinum-selling hip-hop artist J. Cole, as well as rappers Bas and Cozz. Known for his introspective lyrics and humble beginnings, Cole connects with his zealous fan base through his soulful musical identity. He plays from his latest release, Forest Hills Drive, a concept album that examines the elements of fame from the perspective of boyhood, motivated by Cole’s return to his childhood home in North Carolina.

Saturday, 8/20. $35-75, 9pm. John Paul Jones Arena, 295 Massie Rd. 243-4960.
