Video games and kicks collided once again for this latest Puma and Nintendo collaboration.
No word on whether or not Cole will take up the Pistons on the tryout but if he's seriously considering trading in the microphone for a basketball, what's he got to lose? Even with Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin the Detroit Pistons can certainly use another big name to help put butts in the seats... whenever it's safe to attend NBA games anyway.
According to Master P, during an interview with TMZ Sports, the New Orleans-bred mogul revealed that J. Cole still has aspirations of playing in the NBA and has reportedly been in training to build up his skill and stamina to play at the professional level, before adding that he had a long conversation with the Dreamville head about moving into the league.
The RS-Dreamers are slated to drop this Friday (July 31) with a price tag of $125 and will be available on Puma.com and at all stores under the Footlocker Inc. family including Footaction, Champs and Eastbay.
The Fayetteville, N.C. rapper and producer makes a triumphant return to form as he prepares what could be his final album in 'The Fall Off.'
It looks like J. Cole is not dropping an album anytime soon. On Wednesday (Jul 15), Dreamville president and co-founder Ibrahim Hamad took to Twitter to shoot down rumors that J. Cole was releasing a new project after Dreamville artist Olu claimed that the project was coming soon.
While J. Cole has been rather quiet regarding his newest effort it seems fans have something to look forward to. One of his collaborators has confirmed he has new work on the way.
J. Cole and the Dreamville team are celebrating and blessing fans in the midst. On Sunday (July 5), the lyrical Hip Hop collective released its second documentary that highlighted the team's creation of their 2019 blockbuster album, Revenge Of The Dreamers III. Making the announcement via Twitter, Dreamville President Ibrahim Hamad dropped the surprise documentary, adding that the short documentary features unreleased music from the respected roster.
The track, made in response to J. Cole's "Snow On Tha Bluff song, swiftly checked the North Carolina rapper and kept the focus on the lives and continued strugge of Black people.
Although we'd stop short of calling this a beef, J. Cole's new single "Snow On Tha Bluff" was the first salvo in this brewing war of words.
Although the North Carolina rapper never mentions the Chicago artist by name, many on Twitter assumed her now-deleted tweets about rappers being inactive in the struggle was why Cole crafted the song as he did.
J. Cole has been quietly on the front lines of a few protests, but after seeing his efforts and that of countless others actually effecting change, inspired the normally recluse MC to react on Twitter. On Sunday (Jun 7), news began to spread that a majority of the Minneapolis City Council has announced plans to defund and disband the city’s police department. J. Cole, who participated in protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd, commented on this significant start for change. “Powerful powerful,” J. Cole wrote via Twitter.
