J. Cole

Fri., Sept. 21, 8 p.m.

Detroit has played an unsuspecting role in J. Cole’s 2018 chart-topping record KOD, which he dropped by surprise in April. The first artist to be signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label in 2010, the 33-year-old rapper has said that KOD was conceived shortly after taking in Kendrick Lamar’s Detroit performance last year. For the album’s artwork — a painting which depicts children indulging in lean, pills, and cocaine, with the tagline, “This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction” — J.Cole enlisted young Detroit artist Sixmau. This time around, J. Cole will headline and dish out some inspiration with support from Jaden Smith. $49.50+

Tracy Morgan

Fri., Sept. 21, 8 p.m.

When you Google actor, comedian, and Saturday Night Live veteran the tagline “Somebody’s gonna get pregnant tonight” is one of the first things to pop up. Such is par for the course when it comes to the wild card actor known for his revolving door of off-the-wall characters on SNL (lip gloss wearing, unaccredited zoologist Brian Fellow comes to mind) and as the super meta Tracy Jordan on 30 Rock, Morgan famously added survivor to his repertoire. Following a life-altering collision in 2014 that left Morgan in a coma for two weeks, the 49-year-old has since made a full recovery and is as funny as ever. Most recently, Morgan has taken the lead on the Jordan Peele-produced series The Last O.G. on TBS. $43+
