Roc Nation‘s J. Cole is packing his bags and staying off the road. The hip-hop star has announced his intent to fall back on performing for the immediate future.

During his 2016 The Meadows Music and Arts Festival show Saturday (October 1) night, Cole sparked headlines after breaking news about his future performances.

The rapper ran through a slew of hits hyping the thousands of fans into a frenzy. But during one moment of down time before the finale, Cole revealed the news that his days on the road are coming to a cease, at least for a while. “Before I get out of here, listen. This is my last show for a very long time,” he told the crowd who were clearly upset by the news. (XXL Mag)

Recent reports speculated Cole may have hinted at retirement on a DJ Khaled song.

The 31-year-old, who featured on ‘Jermaine’s Interlude’ on Khaled’s new ‘Major Key’ album, had some worrying news for Cole fans around the world. On the mellow song, he raps: “N***as is out here dying / From police that flash the siren and pull up and just start firing. “N***as murkin’ each other, in murky water I try and swim / How the f*ck do I look when I brag to you about some diamond? / Said all I could say, now I play with thoughts of retirement.” (Capital Xtra)

Last month, Cole showed off his support for NFL star Colin Kaepernick amid his publicized national anthem protesting.
