25 Things You Didn't Know About J. Cole [Click Inside]

Complex writes:

Next week just might be the biggest week in J. Cole's life because his highly anticipated sophomore album, Born Sinner, hits stores. Of course, the album has already hit the Internet—it leaked last week and Cole opted to bite the bullet and just stream the album for free on his site.

But the leak might end up helping Cole. So far, the album has received positive reviews for Cole's improved production and the honesty in his rhymes. Highlighted by "Let Nas Down," Cole continues to reveal the intimate details of his life. Still, despite learning about Cole through his music, we're willing to bet there's plenty you still don't know about the Roc Nation rapper.

Without further ado, here are 25 Things You Didn't Know About J. Cole:

-Before calling himself J. Cole, his original rap names were Blaza and then Therapist.
-J. Cole started rapping at age 12 after seeing his cousin from Louisiana rap.
-J. Cole credits Canibus' first album, Can-I-Bus , for changing his perspective on rap music and his approach to songwriting.
-J. Cole could have made it as a walk-on for the St. John's Men's Basketball team.
-When J. Cole first moved to New York City, he got a job as a basketball coach for kids in Queens.
-J. Cole's first thought when meeting Jay-Z was, "Damn, I'm taller than Jay-Z."
-Although he reps Fayetteville, J. Cole was actually born in Frankfurt, Germany.

Honestly I like traditional Hip-Hop. Lyrics, subject matter, movin the crowd, and keeping it all the way real. In March 2013 I became a fan of HazeMunny’s mixtape Cool World. As a fan I would appreciate if everybody would just check this guy out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Check out HazeMunny’s latest video Get Em now.
