Fans who attended J.I.D.’s show at the Roxy theatre in L.A. got a major surprise when J. Cole showed up unannounced Saturday night. J.I.D., a signee to Cole’s Dreamville imprint, brought out his mentor to a wild crowd reception, as seen in some clips posted to Twitter by fans. “When you pay 20 bucks for a ticket to a small venue J.I.D concert and he brings out J. Cole,” wrote one user, posting a video that shows Cole rapping his verse from DJ Khaled’s “Jermaine’s Interlude” in a Chicago Blackhawks jersey.

Outside of performing, Cole was just there to enjoy the show, playing hypeman on stage as J.I.D held it down.

“L.A., y’all see the future right? Don’t the future look bright?” J. Cole told the crowd of J.I.D. Fellow Dreamville signees EarthGang also performed earlier in the night.
