J.Cole's Early life

Jermaine Lamarr Cole was born on January 28, 1985, at an American military
base in Frankfurt, West Germany .His father is an African-American former soldier who served in the U.S. Army ,and his mother is a White German who worked as a postal worker for the United States Postal Service.
Cole's father later abandoned the family during his youth, prompting his mother
to relocate Cole and his brother, Zach Cole to Fayetteville , North Carolina . 

        J.Cole grew up in a multi-ethnic environment, and when asked about how closely his ethnicity impacts him, Cole commented, "I can identify with white
people, because I know my mother, her side of the family, who I love. But at the
end of the day, [I've] never felt white. I can identify [with white people] but never have I felt like I'm one of them. I identify more with what I look like,
because that's how I got treated [but] not necessarily in a negative way". During his youth, Cole expressed an affinity for basketball and music, and served as a first-chair violinist for the Terry Sanford Orchestra until 2003.

Cole began rapping at the age of twelve, and saw it as an ideal profession in
2000, when his mother purchased an ASR-X musical sampler as a Christmas
gift. During this period, Cole heightened emphasis on improving his production skills, later beginning initial production under the pseudonym Therapist.  J cole later collaborated with local group Bomm Sheltuh, rapping and producing as a member of the group.Upon graduating high school with a 4.2 GPA, Cole decided that his chances of securing a recording contract would be better in New York City. He moved there and accepted a scholarship to St. John's University. Initially majoring in computer science, Cole later switched to communication and business after witnessing the life of a lonely computer science professor.  At the college,Cole was the president of Haraya, a pan-African student coalition.He
graduated magna cum laude in 2007, with a 3.8 GPA. Despite graduating, Cole would officially receive his degree during a homecoming concert in 2015, revealing that he had owed money for a library book, causing the university to hold back from granting him his degree.Cole later worked in various part-time jobs in Fayetteville, including a working ad salesman for a newspaper, a bill collector, a file clerk, and a kangaroo mascot at a skate rink. 

J.Cole's Career

1999–2009: Early work and initial mixtapes

After becoming musically inspired by Canibus, Nas, Tupac and Eminem , Cole and his cousin worked on developing their basic understanding of rhyming and
wordplay , as well as beginning to learn how to interpolate storytelling within their lyrics.
By 14, Cole had various notebooks filled with song ideas,however, was unable to produce beats further than sampling . Cole's mother later purchased him the Roland TR-808 drum machine in order to further Cole's understanding of production. Over the next three years, he began posting songs on various internet forums under the moniker Blaza , but later switched to the name Therapist .
          Cole later expanded his production to create an entire CD's worth of instrumentals, and traveled to Roc the Mic Studio, hoping to play it for Jay Z
while he was in recording sessions for American Gangster. Cole waited for over
three hours, before being dismissed by Jay Z.  Cole later used the CD as the
backdrop for his debut mixtape, The Come Up .

Artistic influences

Cole has cited several hip-hop artists as influencing his rapping style, including
Tupac Shakur, Jay Z, Eminem, Nas , and Andre 3000.He described in an
interview with Steve Lobel, " Jay was a mentor before I ever signed to him." "I
studied his moves that much...I got to go on tour with him and steal a lot of
gems. That's how you supposed to do it. You're supposed to learn and take
pieces from the greatest. So, Jay was my mentor before I ever signed to him.
And now that I signed to him it's just a blessing to be able to hit him for advice
and get that real 20 years of experience or however long he been in the game.
It's priceless.""My favorite rapper was Pac," he said. "He was my favorite rapper
before I even started rapping. Before I even thought of-It went from Michael
Jackson, Bobby Brown as a kid and artists like that. Even Kool Moe Dee. Just
the cool dude that I looked up to. And then one day my stepfather came home
from-I don't know if he was back from Desert Storm...I remember him coming
home with that first Pac album. With " Brenda's Got A Baby ". It was 2Pacalypse
Now. And since then-When I was too young to know what he was talking about,
but it connected. Cause that's the thing about art. It's just truth. It's straight-
Whatever you feel. So, even as a seven-year-old kid, eight-year-old kid I could
hear Pac's early albums and feel the truth."Cole drew comparisons to
Nas following the release of Friday Night Lights , stating that Nas served as the
primary inspiration behind the creation of the mixtape. Cole later addressed
their musical similarities on " Let Nas Down ", a song written and composed due
to his disparaging comments towards " Work Out".  As a response to this
record, Nas came out with the song "Made Nas Proud" shortly after. 
In 2014, in an interview with Angie Martinez , Cole listed Tupac, The Notorious
B.I.G. , Nas and Jay Z as his top four rappers of all time, with André 3000 and
Eminem being a toss-up for fifth.
