J. Cole Adds Jaden Smith and EarthGang to KOD Tour
J. Cole is tapping some of hip-hop's hottest acts for his highly-anticipated KOD Tour. The Dreamville rapper will now be joined by the likes of Jaden Smith, EarthGang and his personal alter ego Kill Edward for the nearly two month long trek.
Early Monday morning (July 30), Cole shared with fans on Twitter that he would be adding more special guests to the line-up. "KOD Tour starts Next week. Welcome @officialjaden @EarthGang @killhisways," he wrote along with accompanying graphics and a set of prayer emoji hands. The news of the additional special performances arrives a few months after it was revealed that Young Thug would also be joining Cole on the road.
Shortly after the announcement, Jaden Smith extended his gratitude to Cole for the invitation to join the tour by the "Friends" rapper. "J. Cole Thank You Soo Much Bro," Jaden penned on Twitter. The addition of burgeoning acts such as Jaden or EarthGang comes as no surprise considering Cole's interest rap's new wave of lyricists.
Set to kick off next week on August 9, the KOD Tour will be hitting 34 different cities throughout North America including New Orleans, Dallas, Oakland, Las Vegas, Denver, Detroit, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, D.C. and more. As it currently stands, the tour is slated to wrap up on Oct. 10 in Boston, Mass. But there really is no telling how many more surprises Cole may just have up his sleeve.
