Pounding rain didn't dampen the spirits of hip-hop fans in Chelsea, as thousands of people lined the streets for a chance to score tickets to a special $1 concert by rapper J. Cole at the Highline Ballroom.

Those NY1 spoke to said they didn't mind the rain, they just wanted to make sure they could get in.

"Couple thousand. Too many," said one fan. "I mean, I heard it's a small venue. He said he's going to do two shows. Hopefully, we get in the second one."

"It's worth it, it's worth it," said another fan. "I just want to see my man perform. He's the man."

The concert is a part of the rapper's "Dollar and a Dream" tour, during which he charges just $1 for admission.
