Watch the Trailer for HBO's J. Cole Documentary/Concert Film

Update: That trailer is gone, but we've got another clip for you above.

Original story: Anyone in Cole World probably feels like they know Fayetteville, North Carolina as well as their hometown by now. But J. Cole’s coming to HBO with a visual just in case.

A new documentary/concert movie, J. Cole Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming, is bound for the network on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016. It’ll run 90 minutes and feature guest appearances from Jay Z and Drake. Directed by Scott Lazer, the film will center around an August 2015 concert where Cole performed his entire 2014 Forest Hills Drive album in Fayetteville. Peep the setlist—with four non–Forest Hills encore songs—here.

“My dream for Fayetteville is that people here can wake up and realize that anything you want is possible if you want it,” Cole tells the camera while driving around his city in the trailer. “Growing up, it felt like there wasn’t no opportunity here. I would come back home and it’s just that feeling like there’s no place like home.”
