Ari Lennox made fans' nights in New York City, Saturday, by bringing out J. Cole during her set at the 2021 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. Lennox is signed to Cole's record label, Dreamville Records.

“I’m content with my discography. Wether top 40 or not. Don’t care. My heart and Soul is in every single joint that’s out. Even my SoundCloud joints,” she tweeted. “So until it feels right there simply won’t be no date on another project. So living my life is what I’ll continue doing.”
Lennox's debut studio album, Shea Butter Baby, was released in 2019.
Cole wasn't the only rapper to have a surprise performance, Saturday. Earlier in the day, across the country in Chicago, Machine Gun Kelly did a last-minute set at Lollapalooza.
