J.Cole Made Jokes About His Basketball Career During His Governors Ball Performance
J.Cole withdrew out of the Canadian Elite Basketball League not long after announcing his participation owing to his music business. It’s unclear if J. Cole will ever take an indefinite hiatus from releasing music and performing shows to focus on painting, but fans were surprised to learn that he left the Scarborough Shooting Stars just weeks after joining the team to return to the road.
“I was telling the guys in there like, ‘I’m going for these shows, I’m not sure if I’ll be back,’” Cole stated. “But just in case, I had to let them know how incredible this was. The players, the coaching staff, the organization, the league, it’s a crazy thing when you see it on paper, when you see what’s actually happening, and they made me feel so welcome.”
“I gotta shout out the people of Scarborough because coming from America, I didn’t really know,” he stated. “So I’ve learned so much that the people there feel seen with this basketball team and this league highlighting them. The people there feel seen and I’m assuming that was not always the cause, so I’m proud to be able to add something to Canada and to this talent that’s in Canada. Those guys are incredible so to be able to get some extra eyes on them is a pleasure.”
