The first artist signed to Roc Nation

The Warm Up mixtape was reviewed by XXL magazine[1]. This should be considered a respectable source. Lunasc (talk) 20:58, 20 July 2009 (UTC) Lunasc

-Personal life- Googled 'Binta Mustapha' and theres nothing about her, i really don't think she is notable. 58.96.93.233 (talk) 15:01, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

J. Cole have had multiple cover shoots already in his young career. Appears in XXL Magazine "Top 10 Freshman", [2]. Also in The Source Magazine, [3], and BRM Magazine [4]--Info gw (talk) 12:03, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Longest. Tour. Ever.[edit]

"J. Cole began a college tour from March 19, 2007 to April 30, 2010 concluding in New Brunswick, NJ at Rutgers University's annual Rutgersfest."

A three-year long tour, really? The citation following this only contains info about the Wiz Khalifa reference. There is no source for this three-year tour, which I am sure is a typo. Someone who knows the history, please edit this for accuracy.Brakoholic (talk) 12:51, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Album title[edit]

There's a contradiction in sources with the album title, as discussed at Talk:Cole World#Album title and DJ Semtex interview. I've restored Cole World as the title and noted the discrepancy. In the interest of consolidation, please put all discussion about the album title on Talk:Cole World. Sorry for leaving naked refs, but I'm tired; I'll flesh out the refs in the morning. —C.Fred (talk) 05:13, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Edit request from POWERx101, 29 July 2010[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}} On June 21, 2010 artist Jermaine Lamarr Cole also known as J.Cole made his first Music video "Who Dat" the video was shot near down town Fayetteville. Because J.Cole is a fayetteville native he wanted to include some of the fayetteville community in his video. The E.E Smith High school band and the cheer phi smooth cheerleaders of Fayetteville State University were ask to be in the video. The band director of E.E.Smith and the director of cheer phi smooth both confirmed that they would be in the video. But According to the principal of the high school and chancellor James A. Anderson of Fayetteville State neither the band or cheer phi smooth requested permission to be the video with J.Cole. According to a letter sent to sudents,faculty and staff from Chancellor Anderson " In the past two days I have received emails from FSU alums and some personal friends who had viewed the video and they were outraged to say the least. While the video has both a clean and a dirty version it is the latter version that is extremely profane, raunchy, racist and sexist. Moreover, this version has become a YouTube sensation in a short period of time (over two and one-half million hits so far). The clean version only has 6000 hits. This video does not put FSU in a positive spotlight. As one alumnus wrote “I am surprised that anyone would allow the FSU brand to sink to such a low level”. The Cheerleaders wore outfits with the word Broncos on them and not FSU, however it is clear that they are FSU Cheerleaders."[5] In reply to chancellor Anderson the advisor over cheer phi smooth and the band director of E.E.Smith claim that they were both mislead by the producer of the video to think that they would only be displayed in the clean version of the song. Even though to the public eye the cheerleaders and the band did the same exact things they would do in a normal game they were both reprehended for not following proper protcol. The overall result of this event caused J.Cole to be banded from perfoming in the UNC system.

Where is info about this song?

Nothing in that review says that he's collaborated with any of those acts on multiple occasions; the associated acts field is not for one-time collaborations. —C.Fred (talk) 14:23, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

External links in the EPs section[edit]

A number of relatively young accounts keep added external links to howflyhiphop.com for the EPs listed in Cole's discography in this article. Such links aren't standard for these articles. Is there any compelling reason to keep these links? —C.Fred (talk) 20:24, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Faulty dates / time travelling[edit]

Biography states J. Cole was taught how to rap at age 20, filled his notebook with raps by age 15, and was posting rap songs on the internet at 17. How does he write a notebook full of rhymes and start posting them online 3 to 5 years before he learned to rap in the first place? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Williefreeman (talkcontribs) 10:54, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Day of birth?[edit]

The cited source says he was born January 1985. What source says it was the 28th? —C.Fred (talk) 17:51, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

His new album, "2014 Forest Hills Drive" has a track called January 28th, which he claims was the day he, the God, was born. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 148.177.1.211 (talk) 01:27, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

TBA collaboration[edit]

The prose of the article mentions a collaboration with Kendrick Lamar. However, nowhere is a title mentioned—or, for that matter, a date.

Standard practice, per WP:HAMMER, is to not list albums in discographies until the title and date is known. The general upshot of this is that anything with a TBA title gets removed from the discography.

Since the title isn't known and the date isn't clearly verifiable, why is this in the discography? —C.Fred (talk) 17:11, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Let me rephrase: since the date fails verification, is there any reason to keep an album in the discography if all we know is it will be released with some title some time after 2013? —C.Fred (talk) 00:58, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Now that I think about it seems fine for removal as it not going to be released for awhile. I had only readded it as the editor who removed it did not give a reason for his removal of the content or leave an edit summary at all. The album needs to be mentioned in the main discography pages for J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar as they talk about it quite a bit, so it is pretty sure to happen. STATic message me! 01:21, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Influences[edit]

Where it says he was influenced by Canibus and Tupac. Could Nas be mentioned? He talks about in "Let Nas Down" about printing Nas raps out and putting them on his wall. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Watty95 (talkcontribs) 08:05, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Mother's nationality?[edit]

What nationality is his mother's? It only says "white" for her, which is pretty stupid. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.221.83.158 (talk) 05:52, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
