First impressions are everything and J. Cole made sure to give a stunning entrance for his fans at the very first stop of his highly anticipated 4 Your Eyez Only Tour.

The Fayetteville, N.C. native, whose 4 Your Eyez Only album went platinum four months after its initial release, walked into the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Ariz., wearing an orange prison jumpsuit, and he was flanked by police officers. His entrance, met with the typical screams and applause, signified a deeper meaning for Cole in comparison to previous tours; this time he let his outfit speak for itself.

With the words "Property of" emblazoned on the back of the suit, sitting above a blank white space that could be left open to interpretation, Cole graced the stage and performed hard-hitting songs like "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "Neighbors."

Watch J. Cole make his memorable entrance and hit the stage below. And if you missed out in Arizona, find out when you can catch the Dreamville leader, along with Anderson .Paak and Dreamville Records artists Bas, Ari Lennox and J.I.D, in your city.
