In the next coming weeks, J. Cole will be giving fans glimpses of the people who were influential in his life through his new series on Bornsinner.com.
For the first release, the Roc Nation rapper dedicated the video to his mother Kay Cole. She was a former military veteran, who took a job as a postal worker, and then recently retired.
“I’ve had so many people say, ‘Oh, all you do is ride around all day.’ I am constantly moving. I’m lifting or twisting or walking or stepping up. It’s constant movement,” she said. “I don’t have to deliver mail anymore! It just hit me.”
The newest episode released today, Kendrick Lamar reflects on his early days in music, from his father introducing to Big Daddy Kane to listening to Tupac with his older cousin.
Watch both episodes below. Born Sinner releases on June 25.
