Profile

J Cole

To the delight of the critics and hip-hop heads worldwide, Cole released his fourth album 4 Your Eyez Only late last year. Debuting at #1 on the Billboard chart and selling more than 363,000 copies in its first week, Cole earned his fourth consecutive #1 album, behind Beyonce’s Lemonade at #2 and Drake’s Views at #1. As if having Platinum certifications for all three of his prior full-lengths and 10 charting Hot 100 singles was not enough, 4 Your Eyez Only went Gold and was ranked third-biggest debut of 2016.

J. Cole was introduced to rap at the age of 12. Drawn to storytelling rap, he would freestyle with his cousin and soon fell in love with all things hip-hop. Inspired by rappers such as Nas and Eminem, he began obsessively filling notebooks with rhymes. With the 808 that his mother brought him, Cole began experimenting with beat making and by 17, was posting songs on forums under the alias 'Therapist'. As the story goes; wearing a “Produce for Jay Z or die trying” shirt he stood outside of Jay-Z’s office for days to give him his demo. Not interested at the time, Jay Z passed. However hard work would pay off as two years later he became the first artist signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation label.

There are many factors to J. Cole’s widespread success but perhaps none so than his message to his fans: “I'm here to spread a message of hope. Follow your heart. Don't follow what you've been told you're supposed to do.
