"Cole World: The Sideline Story" is back on streaming platforms effectively immediately.
In a strange twist of events about a week removed from one another, J. Cole's debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story has returned to streaming platforms after disappearing under mysterious circumstances. A Tweet was issued by Dreamville president Ibrahim "Ib" Hamad on behalf of J. Cole signaling the label's intention to sort things out.
Say what you will, given the lack of information, but it only took ten days for Ib and company to get things back in working order. His message to the fans while the issue was being sorted behind the scenes: "To everyone tweeting me about sideline story, I’m aware of what happen and we will get it back up soon, You can stop tweeting me now."
All in all, J. Cole has been arguably his greatest yet as a touring-recording musician. The only significant along the way are all surmountable, including the postponement of the Dreamville Festival due to the flooding of Hurricane Florence. The music festival was initially slated for September has now been rescheduled for April 6th, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The same person that answered to all the anxious Cole fans came forward bearing good news via Twitter. The re-emergence of Cole World: The Sideline Story was precipitated by a Welcome Back message from the problem solver himself, Mr. Hamad.
