J. Cole was scheduled to hold his inaugural Dreamville Festival in North Carolina this weekend, but Hurricane Florence's path caused him to cancel the event.   

In a tweet posted on Monday (Sept. 10), the rapper wrote, "Mannn. Due to this Hurricane heading to NC, we have to cancel Dreamville Festival. We’re working to get another date, but right now safety is most important,"

He also noted that tickets would be refunded. "I appreciate everybody that was headed to rock with us. 30,000 + were expected," he added.

The hurricane, currently at category 4 is affecting people in North and South Carolina. Cole, Young Thug, SZA, Big Sean, Nelly, Teyana Taylor among others were scheduled to perform at Dreamville Festival. See the full statement below.
