With festival season in full swing, J. Cole recently graced the stages in Texas as the headliner for the 2018 Jmblya festival. The three-day festival took place over the May 4 weekend in Dallas, Austin and Houston, as Cole brought a mix of classic and new tracks with him.
As expected, Cole’s set included his KOD outro, “1985 (Intro to ‘The Fall Off’).” The rapper began his performance of the song using a backing track but quickly cut the song off, opting to go a capella. “Yo, cut that shit off. I can’t rap over the vocals. This is a sin,” Cole told the crowd.
The artist also made sure to dig into his extensive catalog of music, performing “No Role Modelz” off of 2014 Forest Hills Drive, as well as “Deja Vu” from his 2016 album, 4 Your Eyez Only.
