SO Dope! J. Cole Makes Good On His 2013 Promise & Attends Fan’s Graduation

J. Cole attends fan's graduation

Back in 2013, a high school student who goes by the Twitter handle @princess_simba wrote J. Cole a letter, and it touched the North Carolina rapper so much, he reached out to her via DM.

“i read your letter twice now,” Cole wrote to her in July of 2013. “you are so strong, i admire YOU. i will be at your graduation… only IF you get into a 4 year University. go!”

A little under a year later, the fan checked in with Cole and gave him an update on her grades, and they were up to par. She’s clearly kept them up since and made good on her promise to get into a 4-year college, as Cole was front and center during her high school graduation this week!

Already?! Mariah Carey & Her New Rich Boo Are Talking Marriage!


After a pretty public and semi-nasty divorce from ex-husband Nick Cannon, R&B legend Mariah Carey seems to have moved on rather fast. In fact, not only is her billionaire boo James Packer completely infatuated with Mariah, but it seems that the two have been talking marriage already! Although they have only been dating for a short period of time, Packer confessed to Carey that he wants to tie the knot with her “sooner than later.”

However, the real issue stopping the two from getting hitched is the fact she is still technically married to Nick Cannon. As soon as the divorce is 100% finalized, I have the feeling we’ll be hearing wedding bills ringing very, very soon.

The craziest thing is that with all of the hits he’s produced, his music companies have been valued at $0.00. According to the paperwork, Storch only made $10,000 for last year. As for how he blew his fortune, he got bad with drugs and apparently spent $30 million dollars in a six-month time span on coke and other illicit substances, along with fancy cars, luxurious mansions and so on. Such a shame, smh!

(Photo) Is There Something BIGGER Than Racism? According To Nas, It’s “America Selling A False Dream”


In the wake of what is Charleston, and President Obama’s use of the n-word, the New York native speaks his truth on the bigger picture in America. It’s “BIGGER than BLACK and WHITE,” he says on Instagram. It is, however, “about America selling a false dream.” Nas frequently wonders, as a Black man, how can a country like ours, a country responsible for the biggest export – one he calls culture – still make one feel like they do not belong. How do we change this? Look to the “past, present & future,” he says.
