J. Cole is boring they said. He doesn’t make music to get the crowd hype they said.

“I wasn't happy when mad happy shit was happening to me. What is it that’s holding you back from appreciating this shit? It was like, ego. It was 100% ego. The ego is never satisfied with amount of success or any amount of money or any amount of anything. So once I seen that, I realized I was missing the point of what everything was about. Which was appreciating the little shit first. That other shit aint nothing—living in the moment.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY J.COLE!
