J. Cole and Drake

Grand opening, grand closing. J. Cole capped off his second annual “Dollar & A Dream” tour with a bang.

Following sold-out shows in London, New York, Miami, Raleigh, and Chicago, the Roc Nation MC performed two back-to-back shows at L.A.’s Belasco Theater on Wednesday night. His Dreamvillains lined up for hours to get their hands on the coveted $1 tickets, and they got much more than they paid for.

In addition to performing his 5-year-old mixtape The Warm Up in its entirety, Cole surprised the crowd by bringing out Drake, who performed “Trophies,” “0 to 100,” and “Worst Behavior.”

“These are the only two kings in the game right now on stage,” said Drizzy as he stood alongside Cole.

During his second show, L.A.’s own Kendrick Lamar joined Cole onstage for “Poetic Justice,” “Backseat Freestyle,” and “m.A.A.d city.”
