J Cole is an American hip-hop artist and record producer who became known as a solo rapper with the debut of his mixtape The Come Up. As a solo rapper, he made several other mixtapes and gained respect in the rap music industry for his entertaining and unique rap style. At that time he was very active in rap music, he was the epitome of what people expected from a great rapper.
He rapped about real-life issues, not just about women and money. He was a real guy who understood life in a real sense without faking things. Today he is a father and has voluntarily decided to leave the limelight of the celebrity world, and yet people still talk about him a lot.
J Cole’s Mom, Brother, and Wiki Facts
Born on 28 January 1985, Jermaine Lamarr Cole is easily identified as J. Cole. He was born on an American military base in Frankfurt, West Germany, the son of an African-American father who was a former soldier in the US Army. His mother, Kay Cole, is a white German woman who worked as a postal employee for the United States Postal Service.
Kay Cole raised J. Cole and his brother Zach Cole single-handedly when her husband left her in his youth. This prompted the single mother to move the family of three to Fayetteville, North Carolina, and gave J and Zach Cole the opportunity to grow up in a multi-ethnic environment. J. Cole admitted that growing up in such a multi-ethnic society gave him the opportunity to identify easily with whites because his mother is gone, but he still feels more connected to blacks, whom he resembles more.
As he grew up, J. Cole turned to basketball and music and was even the first violinist of the Terry Sanford Orchestra until 2003. In 2000, he had already considered music as his ideal profession when his mother gave him an ASR-X music sampler for Christmas. With this, he intensified his efforts to improve his skills in music production and will soon start his music production under the pseudonym Therapist. Later he worked with the local group Bomm Sheltuh to rap and make music as a member of the group.
J Cole’s Teeth
One of the things that is much talked about when J. Cole is uniquely white unlike his older biological brother is his crooked smile, which is largely determined by his dentition and the way it looks when it is exposed.
J Cole made the list of rappers who are said to have bad teeth. In one of his interesting interviews about his crooked smile, he described himself as a “cartilage tooth” and tells how his mother used to say that he needed braces but couldn’t afford them. He accepted his teeth the way they look and even had a song for them: “Wry Smile” in his 2013 album Born Sinner. In the song, he made it known that he wouldn’t change them for anything in the world.
Who is J. Cole’s Girlfriend/Wife, Melissa Heholt?

J Cole’s Daughter
Their marriage produced a daughter who was born in December 2016, as his album “4 Your Eyez Only” revealed more about it. The song on the album is called “She’s Mine” and consists of parts 1 and 2, which are said to be the most beautiful songs the rapper has written since he became a father, and he was really good as a father. I guess it’s true what they say, being a father changes you.
