American rapper J Cole is in town to perform a show inspired by his latest album 2014 Forest Hills.

Named after his childhood home in Fayetteville, North Carolina the bumph surrounding his show on Monday, May 18, describes the record as "a meditation on the value of love relative to worldly success".

Signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation in 2007, Cole's rise has been slow and steady as a performer and collaborator culminating in the release of 2011's debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story.

No longer on the sidelines, that number one success was followed by fellow chart-topper Born Sinner in 2013.

His O2 show will also feature Jhené Aiko, Pusha T, Dreamville artists Bas, Cozz and Omen. Doors open at 6.30pm. Official ticket resales are available here.

Expect the Jubilee line to North Greenwich to be filled with eager fans.

To get in the mood we've been spinning this in the office.
