It’s about that time again. J. Cole is gearing up to hit the road for the Forest Hills Drive Tour, in support of his third studio album.

He announced the string of live shows Friday (Feb. 13) morning with the tweet, “The real is back.” 

Cole's last jaunt was the Dollar and a Dream tour last summer, where he only charged $1 for select tickets. With the new tour, he's bypassing bigger cities. “This first run is for all the cities that never get no love… I feel you. Forest Hills Drive tour. See you in a few,” he tweeted along with the complete list of tour dates.


Over the next month, the 30-year-old rapper will stop off in Eugene, Ore.; Boise, Idaho; Wichita, Kan.; Tallahassee, Fla.; Mobile, Ala. and 15 other cities. The tour wraps April 7 in Providence, R.I. 

Released in December, Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive became the highest selling rap album of the year, moving over 350,000 copies in its first week. In addition, the album was streamed more than 15 million times, setting a new record on Spotify.
