When Hip-Hop heads see Cole World trending on Twitter, the natural reaction would be that J. Cole has some new music coming. The Dreamville rapper coined the phrase Cole World early in his career as a play on the phrase “Cold World” and dropped the catchphrase in his lyrics (Cole world, no snuggie). But this time, Cole World was trending for a different reason.
Former Houston Astros pitcher Gerritt Cole signed a huge $324 million deal to play for the New York Yankees in the upcoming MLB season. The addition of Cole looks to be the missing piece in that World Series puzzle for a Yankees team that was already in contention. This news caused a trend on Twitter with some excited MLB fans but also a lot of upset Hip-Hop fans.
Naturally, J. Cole fans were pissed to see the #ColeWorld being used on a baseball player and not the Platinum Selling MC.
Fortunately, there is some news for the eager J. Cole fans out there. Dreamville Festival tickets go on sale at 12 pm EST on Wednesday. The show takes place April 4in Raleigh, North Carolina. This year’s lineup has not been released, but last year’s festival featured SZA, Big Sean, Rapsody, Teyana Taylor and of course the Dreamville roster of J. Cole, Bas, Cozz, J.I.D., Earth Gang and so much more.
