J Cole, the rapper from Louisville, in the top 3 best rappers in the world but he offers more than just music. For me it's like he taught me how to write without even meeting me, he showed me how to write from the heart and for that, i'm forever grateful. In my opinion he's the most socially aware artist since pac, he's so humble and so down to earth to match. He has his morals set, he's not out here showing off all his luxuries because he doesn't need to impress strangers. Which is something he labels as a very bad way off life which i can totally agree on. He's the only artist that appears twice on the walls of my studio. I love his music and i love him as a person which i find very rare to find.
2014 Forest Hills Drive. What a fucking album. To this day i'm still amazed it didn't win a grammy, i don't know how it didn't but fuck the Grammys. He delivered an unbelievable project from start to finish with a mix of your hard rap song's such as A Tale Of 2 Citez to an emotional message about loving yourself within Love Yourz. Very creative to make a song on losing your virginity too, to get something like that which is so simple and turn it into a rap song is some impressive work. Friday Night Lights as a mixtape was unbelievable too, and then to get spotted by jay z with lights please is a crazy story which i'm sure all j cole fans will know about. But i'll break it down quick for those who don't. J Cole has always been a producer and one day he heard that Jay was performing near by so his and his cousin was waiting around the back for Jay to come out and eventually after waiting 4 hours in the rain he appeared, so Cole ran over, gave Jay his cd with a bunch of beats with some hooks but all he got back was 'i don't wanna listen to this shit' and chucked it back at him, peak times for Cole but that made him take it solo in new york and after putting out Friday Night Lights, Jay came across the song 'Lights Please' (banger, go listen to it) and told his manager to go get cole and bring him in and that is how cole got put on.

I truly want to know. I don't understand this. I don't care if you're the 12th man on the bench! You should be running free clinics/camps, unless it goes to charity or a cause. Someone help me understand this please?
It's beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success
Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress
I grew up in the city and though some times we had less
Compared to some of my niggas down the block
Man, we were blessed. #coleworld#dreamville#jcole#loveyourz#4yeo
Cole World, same nigga used to drive around with yo girl
In my mama's Civic, now I'm out here tryna get it

So when you see me in the streets, man I ain't got a mimic
This little girl was selling her drawings on the train. She was not homeless or poor but just selling her art to the world. I had to buy one! This was beautiful to me , she could be doing anything else but she selling her art. This is Our kids of the future💯#Dreamville @dreamville
Assalamualaikum, personally Raya this year has been a disappointment. No family pictures, duit raya close to zero and my law finals coming up in less than a week. Lately a lot of things happened that made me question my life. Spent the whole week in my room on the verge of depression and being morally nihilistic. But your boy here ain't no bitch. While people are having fun beraya, I went to the bar in hope that would made me happy. As you can see in the picture above, it kinda did. On the bright side I lost a couple pounds tho.

I truly believe It takes a dog to know a dog, period. The most significant aspect of what I do is essentially adding new family members through the game I love. This young lady is honestly one of the toughest young hoopers I've seen, and the best thing about her is that she's committed to the process! All work and no talk. @j.hooper3 #TheBeautifulStruggle ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
