J. Cole Reunites With Wale At Manager’s 40th Birthday Party

J. Cole has reunited with Wale at the 40th birthday of his longtime manager Ibrahim “Ib” Hamad.

Hamad shared photos from the big bash on his Instagram page on Sunday (February 25), including one of him with Cole and Wale.

Cole also raised a toast to Hamad backstage at a recent gig while he was on tour with Drake and Lil Durk.
