GREATNESS.
.
The first time I saw J. Cole perform was in 2009 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin. He was opening for Jay-Z on the Blueprint 3 tour at the time and was the first artist to perform on the lineup each night. His set was so early that the arena lights were still turned on as a majority of the seats were empty with many people still in route to the venue.
.
A few months later I met Cole in Austin during SXSW 2010 where I photo documented his experience. He was performing throughout the week at small bar venues which didn't even have proper stages. None the less, he performed with the same high energy and passion as he did opening for Jay-Z months prior. A couple of years later, I was touring around the world with the @Dreamville crew and had a front row view of the vision being built one supporter at a time. Fast forward to Saturday night- 8 years after his first visit to Austin and 4 platinum albums deep, Cole was back in Austin and packed out the Frank Erwin Center on his 4th world tour.
.
I started this story with the word GREATNESS because it was the first thing that came to mind while watching the 4 Your Eyez Only tour. It's no surprise that Cole is a extraordinary writer, producer and performer but, the context I'm referring to when I say greatness is about leadership. To me, Cole's true greatness comes from the fact that he surrounds himself with greatness. Every single person from the production staff, security and merch teams to the Dreamville artists, creative team, band and executives are each masters at what they do and all work tirelessly to ensure experiences like like Saturday night are impossible to forget. When a person with a message can assemble a team of people together to make a difference, that is GREATNESS. I know most of these incredible people personally and am proud to say they've had a huge and positive impact on my life.
.
Cole opening for Jay-Z was 8 years ago. To even get to that point took several long years. It's amazing what's possible when you match a diligent work ethic with unyielding faith and patience. The result is succeeding on purpose.

Above are just some visuals I created with Cole over the past 8 years.

I know this was a couple weeks ago but I was just sitting here reminiscing on one of the greatest and closest concert experiences I've had to date. I still can't believe I sat front row and saw Cole. Incredible experience. Thank you for keeping it real with us.

"Shit, cause I ain't rich enough
I mean my father got a whip but ain't sick enough
My mother need treatment like she ain't been sick enough?
My cousin need treatment like she ain't been sick enough?
My God I mean before I die give me everything required to die knowing I did enough
And my niggas well, they can never drink enough
Let me get a couple bottles get 'em liquored up
Young kings in the city so we feast like the royals, sleepless
The city the only teacher, the snakes in retreat
Don't retreat thats a coil
Straight from police they will seek and destroy you
Nigga no pirates, homie I got lockships
I go Loch Ness on these fuck niggas, can't fuck with us
They all boxed in, might circle round and dump shots in
See Cole, he might pop in and go beast mode
The new East Coasts, them Queens niggas to them Ville niggas gone speak for it
Niggas know it, I feel at home in like every city
Rock big body like 750
My bitch body like Heaven pick me
I'm winning nigga, I'm winning nigga, I'm"-Bas #underground #undergroundrap #hiphop #music #musiclover #boombap #lit #legend #realrap #rap #lyrical #lyricalbeast #dreamville #bassy #coleworld #dopamine #thecomeup
