If you’re a fan of the sensational, hip hop artist J. Cole, then you most definitely are aware that today the rapper celebrates his 26th birthday.
Some of you know EXACTLY what Cole meant by that comment, while some of you may just be totally oblivious about the city that Jermaine Lamarr Cole was raised in. If that’s the case, then it is clear that you have never heard much of J. Cole’s music because he shouts out “The `Ville” just about every chance that he gets.
Fayetteville, also called “Fayettenam” is located in North Carolina, where “it wasn’t set up for a young brother to rise.“ Many of Cole’s songs talk about the pain and struggle that he has endured while growing up in The `Ville.
“It’s raining outside boy/Fuck a umbrella/Niggas banging outside boy/They guns’ll dumbbell a nigga/Tired of telling niggas that’s deceased Rest In Peace.“
Looking at where he is today, Cole has come a LONG way but he has not forgotten where he came from and he remains humble, not allowing his success to give him a big head.
“Made it through the fame and never got too jaded.“ Cole raps on Friday Night Lights track, “Love Me Not.”
J. Cole is my top favorite hip hop artist out right now, and I can assure you that he will remain one for a VERY long time. With much love and respect, I hope that you have a GREAT birthday! Cole World!
