J.Cole kicked off his first annual Dreamville Weekend today with a visit to his Alma-mater, Terry Sanford High School.

The Roc Nation rappers’ Dreamville Weekend will run through March 3rd in his hometown, Fayetteville, NC. Cole is looking to use the festival to give back to the community which helped him achieve his current success.

Other events planned for the weekend are a Hennessy V.S. hosted dinner at OSSO restaurant on March 2nd, that is in honor the 100th anniversary of the CIAA college basketball tournament. Then on the 3rd, as Dreamville Weekend wraps up, J.Cole & Dreamville team up to present The Dollar And A Dream Show, which will go down at the Fillmore Charlotte.
