Performing his singles like ‘Middle Child’, ‘Love Yourz’ and ‘No Role Modelz’. The North Carolina native also showed support for rapper 21 Savage who was recently involved in a controversial arrest by ICE before his subsequent release last week.
His performance followed that of rapper Meek Mill who kicked things off at the All Star Game.
Cole who is well famed for his platinum selling projects without any features also did not have any guest performers for his set unlike previous All-Star halftime performances but was still able to deliver a simple, yet compelling and energetic show that had the entire arena spell bound.
