J. Cole still rides the bus, platinum albums and world tours be damned

A fan captured Cole on a bus in Queens over the weekend, grabbing onto that yellow pole like the New York City commuter he was in that moment. Cole was up in New York for a surprise performance at Bas’s Too High to Riot tour on Wednesday, but who knows what led him to hop on the bus. Heading to a friend’s? Buying milk? Picking up dry cleaning? Just taking a ride around his old stomping grounds and seeing how the neighborhood has changed?

Hopefully he was headed to the studio.

“One time I hit a home run. The pitcher threw the ball, well, the pitcher was my dad, so my dad threw the ball and I hit it all the way to the yellow pole, which means it was a home run. I’m not sure if we won the game or not because we don’t keep score.”
