J. Cole Signs Deal To Play In The Basketball Africa League With Rwanda Patriots

Spread the love

J Cole not only has a new album coming out this Friday, he is now playing in his first professional game this Sunday with the Rwanda Patriots. Cole has always been a huge basketball fan. He played high school basketball in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Cole played for Terry Sanford High School and then was actually a walk-on at St.Johns but it never came to fruition thanks to Cole going all in on his music career. Cole is now 36 and is slated at  6’2″ and will now get a shot in the newly formed Africa League. If the video below shows anything it shows Cole can hoop.

I know it’s a empty gym and everyone can look good in a empty gym with some editing but Cole actually seems like he can hoop. The Africa Basketball League is a new league and it is a joint effort between the NBA and FIBA. This makes Cole the first rapper to sign with a NBA property since  Master P signed contracts with the Hornets and Raptors in the 1998 and 1999 preseason. This is a win-win for both sides. Cole gets to try out his dream and this brings a ton of attention to the Africa league. Can’t wait to see how this goes.
