NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Along with it being the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city, Super Bowl 48 is unique in its lineup of musical acts performing BEFORE the big day.

The VH1 Super Bowl Blitz will feature rap star J. Cole who will kick off the six day, six concert series on Monday night.

The St. John's University alum who hails from North Carolina returns to Queens for a special performance at neighboring Queens College.

"I would drive past  Queens College to volunteer for  an after school program.. I would let them shoot basketball and play soccer," recalled Cole about his early days volunteering in New York City.

Monday's show begins at 11 p.m. at the Colden Auditorium at Kupferberg Center for the Arts. Doors open at 9:30 p.m.

Tickets are still available. CLICK HERE for details.

Cole plays the theater at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.

The lineup throughout the week for the VH1 Super Bowl Blitz includes Janelle Monae; Fall Out Boy; TLC, Goo Goo Dolls and Gavin Degraw.
