Rapper J. Cole is sharing personal shocking details in an essay he released a few hours ago. The rapper in the essay titled The Players Tribune opened up about being a dad to two beautiful sons and also his plans to quit the music business very soon.
J. Cole recounted his journey between two passions: basketball and rap. He recalled the highlights, setbacks and conflicts of his two pursuits and the struggles J. Cole had to go through, “A couple weeks prior I learned that I would become a father. It wasn’t a surprise. I had been taking steps to change my life for the past couple years, and I felt ready.”
“Four years have passed. In that time I’ve been blessed with two sons, learned the delicate art of balance between parenthood and career, had the pleasure of working with a ton of talented artists as a featured rapper, spent 10 magical days recording a Dreamville album in Atlanta, and put a lot of time and energy into sharpening my sword and growing as an artist.”
“For a while, I felt a little weird about it. Like, nah. I felt, ‘Did I miss something?’ ‘Cause I didn’t feel the change that people talk about. And then I figured out what it was.” “I changed my life in order to get ready to have a family and to have a son. I literally changed my life, where I was living, the things that I was doing. I changed. So because of that, when my son came, I was ready. I already made room.”
