Now, J. Cole is headed back to Fayetteville for the three day festival known as Dreamville, which will celebrate, amount other things, the town, the town’s youth, and the rapper himself. J. Cole will perform on Saturday March 3, and participate in other activities over the weekend, including a visit to his old high school.
