Rapper J. Cole hosted and performed at the New Year’s Eve celebration at 1OAK in the Mirage, and Jesse Grant of WireImage was at the year-old nightclub for a photo gallery.
The hip-hop star dressed head to toe in black and white, from his cap and his shirt to his black leather pants and black jacket, which he later took off in the heat of the packed nightspot on New Year’s Eve.
During the celebration, J. Cole was presented with a cake to commemorate his NYE performance at 1OAK. His rumored fiancee Melissa Heholt was with him, and the crowd included cast and crew of the new E! Entertainment reality-TV show “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.”
J. Cole, who dine at Carmine’s in the Forum Shops of Caesars Palace while in town, was part of the lineup during the holiday celebration at Light in Mandalay Bay on Dec. 18.
