J. Cole, mainstream hip-hop's resident woke hero, is coming to Minneapolis. 

The superstar MC announced his 34-date KOD Tour on Tuesday morning, including a September 19 date set for Target Center. Opening is androgynously fantastic trap star Young Thug, who you should not mistake for local rapper Allan Kingdom. Cole, 33, is touring in support of his latest album, last month's KOD, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts (Post Malone and Keith Urban knocked it down to No. 3 this week). 

Tickets to the Target Center gig -- $39.50-$99.50 -- go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday via the venue box office and LiveNation.com. Amex cardholders (Tuesday through Friday) and Spotify subscribers (Friday) can take advantage of pre-sale opportunities. 

J. Cole was "powerful" and "impassioned" last year at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center, according to our critic. As you'll notice in the above photo, Cole performed at the 2015 edition of Soundset, the Rhymesayers-organized, Minnesota-anchored hip-hop fest that'll return with Migos, Logic, and Erykah Badu in just a few weeks

Here's the Kevin Hart-featuring music video for KOD single "ATM."
