The Beginner’s Guide To J. Cole

From his humble beginnings in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Jermaine Cole–better known as J. Cole–has with few mixtapes and one debut album made his mark in the rap game already. Known for his clever wordplay and flawless flow, J. Cole has wowed fans and critics alike. Nominated for Best New Artist at last year’s Grammy Awards it seems like he’s already on the path to greatness. And though he may have felt some pressure by being Jay-Z’s first protege since Memphis Bleek, J. Cole calmly proved himself with the release of his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story. Loved by both fans and critics, J. Cole’s album not only satisfied listeners but had them on the edge of their seat waiting for his next official release. If you feel like reminiscing, check out his ’07 debut mixtape “The Come Up” and make sure enter the Own the Stage contest and ¬†you may be one of the lucky ones to be flown out to LA for J. Cole’s concert on October 19th! D
