As Bas began his final song "Tribe" and the show at Cat’s Cradle started to wrap up, a surge went through the crowd as J. Cole made a surprise appearance on stage.
J. Cole joined Bas on stage Tuesday night to rap to his parts in the song. It appeared no one in the audience was aware what was happening until he stepped out onto the stage.
‘It was really a huge surprise,” Chelsea McNair, an attendee of the concert, said. “Bas was wrapping up the show with the song 'Tribe' and he performed his part as usual, and then after the hook all of sudden we could hear Cole’s voice and then all of a sudden he ran on stage.”
Gregory Hall, a UNC junior and former staff writer for The Daily Tar Heel, said that when J. Cole stepped out onto stage the crowd went completely wild.
“I’ve gone to so many shows at Cat’s Cradle before,” Hall said. “But I’ve never heard it as loud as when J. Cole came out on stage.”
