Popular rapper, J. Cole has come out to open up about his personal life and rap career.
The lyricist recently revealed that he has two sons with his wife, Melissa Heholt and he is currently considering quitting music.
According to him, his long term plan is becoming the best rapper he could possibly be before retiring, but he still has a few more items to check off before that time comes.
He added that at 35 years old, it sounds crazy to talk about retiring, but that is how crazy the best dreams sound.
His words, “Four years have passed. In that time I’ve been blessed with two sons, learned the delicate art of balance between parenthood and career, had the pleasure of working with a ton of talented artists as a featured rapper, spent 10 magical days recording a Dreamville album in Atlanta, and put a lot of time and energy into sharpening my sword and growing as an artist.”
“My long term plan was becoming the best rapper I could possibly be before hanging up my jersey, leaving nothing on the table when all was said and done.”
“The fire that was once dying out has returned, and for that I’m grateful. On my career bucket list, there remain a few more items to check off before I give myself permission to enter whatever the next chapter of my life may be.”
“However, as I approach the summit of this mountain, I still find myself staring at that other one in the distance, wondering if I can climb.”
“At 35 years old, I know that sounds crazy when said out loud, but I believe all of the best dreams do.”
