After setting the Internet on fire with The Come-Up, The Warm-Up, and Friday Night Lights, Grammy nominated artist, J Cole debuted his first studio album Cole World: Sideline Story September 27th 2011. The album sold 217,324 copies on its first week of release (#1 on the sales chart). J. Cole was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2012 Grammy’s. The boy from “The Ville” doesn’t seem too concerned about the potential financial benefits of becoming a rap sensation—he has loftier goals. As evidenced through his prodigious lyrics and tireless work ethic, Cole desires to go down as one of the greatest of all time. And if that wasn’t enough, keep in mind that the majority of his tracks are self-produced. Recently, ESPN reached out to Jermaine in hopes of revamping the theme song for “Baseball Tonight”. Almost effortlessly, the St. John’s graduate worked his magic—adding an urban flair to a classic tune. Look out for a drop with fellow up and comer Kendrick Lamar in the near future as well.
