J. Cole Announces College Tour With Big K.R.I.T.

The BET Music Matters alum team up for a 13-city run.

Published February 17, 2012

Smarten up, youngsters. Two of hip hop’s brightest minds are coming to a college campus near you. After a breakout 2011, J. Cole is hitting the road again and he's bringing Big K.R.I.T. with him. The Roc Nation star will headline the Campus Consciousness Tour with the Mississippi noisemaker as his opening act.

As the name implies, Cole and K.R.I.T. will be targeting college campuses around the country, beginning April 11 at the University of Rhode Island and ending May 3 at the University of New Hampshire.

Cole, who went on a four-month world tour last year, was nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy (he lost to indie rock star Bon Iver). Big K.R.I.T.'s next mixtape 4eva N a Day is due March 5. See the full list of tour dates below.
