J. Cole delivered on of his most stirring performances in recent memory at The Meadows festival in New York's Citi Field, inspiring the crowd with messages of self-confidence and hope.
Then, he dropped the bomb that it would be his "last show for a very long time."
He wasn't specific as to the reason behind his hiatus, but needless to say, fans are dismayed:
Commenters are speculating that anything from a new baby or a new album is the reason for his unexpected hiatus. Regardless of why he decided to take a break, hopefully his definition of "a very long time" is not as long as he's making it sound.
