J. Cole

In honor of the 5th anniversary of his mixtape The Warm Up, J. Cole debuts the never-before-seen video for “Lights Please,” which aired during Sunday’s MTV special “The Warm Up: 5 Years Later.”

It was Cole’s first time seeing the video, which was shot in August 2008. The BB Gun-directed clip was originally planned as a trilogy that included “Lost Ones” and “Simba.”

The celebration continues. The Roc Nation rapper has also announced dates for his second annual “Dollar & A Dream Tour,” which kicks off July 3 in London and travels to New York (7/15), Miami (7/17), Raleigh (7/19), Chicago (7/21), and L.A. (7/23).

He will perform The Warm Up in its entirety during the six shows. Tickets will cost $1 and be available on a first come, first serve basis.

In an open letter published on his Dreamvillain website, Cole reflected on the mixtape that changed his life and the lives of many of his fans. “Five years later, I couldn’t be more proud of its impact. Thank you,” he wrote.

Take a walk down memory lane with Cole.

    The best rap concert I went to last year…followed closely by Drake. He’s worth the ticket. Very engaging.
