J Cole

According to iTunes, rapper-of-the moment J. Cole is a new father.

Jermaine Lamarr Cole, 31, and his wife Melissa Heholt welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday. The newborn is Cole's first child (that we know of).

Cole's heart-wrenching music video "Crooked Smile" is today's Throwback Thursday video.

The North Carolina rapper dedicated "Crooked Smile" to 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was shot & killed during a DEA drug raid on her Detroit home in 2010.

The music video, directed by Sheldon Candis, draws parallels to Aiyana's tragic story. Cole's character watched helplessly as a white DEA agent gunned down his little sister in his home.

The video concludes with a thoughtful message to the Obama administration: "Please reconsider your war on drugs".

    "Richardson narrated the state’s case:

    At a Wednesday evening Bible study in the basement of Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Roof walked in carrying a Glock .45-caliber handgun hidden in a pouch.

    “Little did they know what a cold and hateful heart he had,” Richardson said.

    Pinckney offered the visitor a seat next to him and gave him a Bible and a study guide so he could follow along. The Gospel of Mark. The parable of the sower. Roof sat and listened for more than 30 minutes, then pulled out his gun and shot Pinckney “over and over again.”

    Then he shot Simmons.

    “Shell casings were tumbling across the parish hall,” Richardson said.

    The others dived for the floor, and Roof moved among them, reloading. He had filled eight magazines with 11 hollow-point bullets each.

    He emptied an entire magazine into Jackson, who was 87. Then he killed Lance, Singleton, Hurd, Middleton-Doctor.

    Polly Sheppard, a retired nurse, was on the ground praying. She saw Roof’s boots approaching.

    “Shut up!” Roof said. Then he told her that he would let her live so she could tell the world what he had done.

    Sanders, already shot, confronted him. “We mean you no harm,” he said.

    Roof exploded: “Y’all are raping our white women. Y’all are taking over the world.” Then Roof shot him, repeatedly.

    Richardson said that in total, Roof fired more than 70 bullets, more than 60 of which hit his victims.

    Richardson told the jury that Roof had planned his attack for months, choosing Mother Emanuel because of its historical significance to the black community in Charleston.

    “It was done with malice in his heart .?.?. racist retribution for perceived offenses against the white race,” Richardson said. He said that Roof wanted to start a race war and that he saw his “massacre” as “a catalyst for hate, division and mistrust to take hold.”

    After Roof was arrested, Richardson said he “confessed fully” to FBI agents who interviewed him, telling them: “I went to the church that night. I did it. I killed them.”

  • Scromes1212

    Congrats to Cole on the baby and also his new album. Heard a couple songs, should be good.

  • Yetunde

    Congratulations to the happy couple. I detect a little negative vibe from the write up, I can't understand why though.

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    A simple congrats just wouldn't suffice, huh? LOL...well CONGRATS to you two. May the lil lady bring much love, joy, peace & happiness to your lives.

  • Scromes1212

    Cole is super private so I could see where that's appropriate. Most people didn't know he was married

  • SummerBaby

    I already disliked this dude & his rant really pissed me off. When he called them nappy heads ?. I despise that word.

  • Finding Forever…

    I might be a little late but did you attend the wedding (from a reality tv show about a week or so ago, LOL)?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm a huge fan of J. Cole's and I love #BlackLove. Congrats, brother! Rofl but seriously... I am happy for him.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Such a bastard. I was so disgusted. Next year people will be like, who is Young Thug

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Me too and my mama's husband uses it all the time

  • SummerBaby

    My kids were never allowed to say it. Talk about a good curse out coming if I heard them say it.

  • Low E. TUH!

    FINE ARSE JERMAINE!

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    These dudes disrespect black woman like they won't made from a black woman.

  • Vonn

    So do I. His hair appears to be a bit coarse. You are talking about your family...including yourself.

  • Finding Forever…

    I agree & respect that of him. More should take notes on it. But I (might just be me) heard that he was taking a break from music, so I assumed family was a factor.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I didn't even notice that part. Sandy a mess

  • SummerBaby

    Exactly & he has daughters. I would be appalled if I ever heard my father speak like that toward another black woman.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I posted last night that I NEVER noticed he had on a Fayetteville State Broncos jersey in his Everybody Dies vid. Saw it for 3rd time last night and was like OH SNAP. He is so PROUD to be from here man. Love him for it. We waiting too! YEEK! The last major project of the year!

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Right. Black people have been taught to reject everything inherently black. It's sad

  • Vonn

    Where did you work before you started wrapping? Where are you going to work after? He sounds illiterate.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    He on album number 4 as of tomorrow. He is beyond a single moment.

    Probably is. Won't he the one wearing a dress?

  • SummerBaby

    It's so disturbing along with all the comments I've seen cosigning with him. ?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I want him to go wear his dresses in silent.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Whispers I wasn't going to say nothing, She does. Love knows no age.

    KONA

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I love J.Cole's music! Congratulations!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    No....but it makes you ignorant for bringing up his mom.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Never will fault a young man for liking an older woman lmao. I think they are close in age. But hey if they aint thats fine too.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Which one?? lol

  • Guess Who

    He looks like EVERY part of his body stinks...

  • Libra80sBaby

    I love J. Cole, but I aint gone even pretend I like his hair like this...NOPE

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Good Question, I would take a guess based upon my history of the eldest Roses. But I will wait from Miss Sandra

  • MyNameIs

    So happy for Cole and wifey. He's such a humble guy!

  • Scromes1212

    Stop it. I'm sure everyone would feel the same about him if his wife white like his mom. I wasn't the the one that brought up the fact that his wife is black.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    New Post

  • MyNameIs

    Ok T.I. ??

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Oh ok.... I just automatically assumed since they met in college they were the same age. But i think they're close in age.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    But YOU are the only one who brung up his mom is WHITE. YOU stop it.

  • MyNameIs

    That's Sandra. If there was no shade we'd be asking if she had an intern. Lol

  • Scromes1212

    Cause someone else brought up race as if it mattered. No disrespect Lenina.

  • MyNameIs

    I'd rather her not. She'll probably twist it in his favor.

  • Renee Bee

    Nope. Auntie will drag him. I can't wait. (Birdman hand rub)

  • hottlanta

    Yep you can tell the internet is back up she is happy to throw the shade and we are just as happy to receive it.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    RIGHT!!!!!!!!! Shamefully but yes

    It was leapy....LMAO

    My bad

  • MyNameIs

    Sandra? Lol. I doubt it.

  • Smartypants

    Just had a phone screen and they called my last job who told them I left with no notice even though we're at at will.

  • Libra80sBaby

    LMAO...

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Congrats to him and his wife I never knew he was married ! She seems low key yet beautiful I wish them the best . I remember this story .... sad .

  • MissyJ

    At will ain't for the employee it's for the employer. Most jobs expect 2 weeks notice, even though they do not have to give it to you. I'd just explain why you left in haste.

  • puppylove

    A mess. Petty asses. What are the laws in your state.

  • Smartypants

    It's an at will state. The statute said that either employer or employee can end the relationship at any time for any reason without notice.

    They are being petty af.

  • MissyJ

    Did they tell them or did they ask? Some companies ask if you're eligible for rehire and why not? I am not eligible at one job because I left without notice. But I just tell potential employers the company future was uncertain and I was offered a position that needed me immediately. Just explain with something borderline reasonable and they'll understand

  • Finding Forever…

    Black Ink Chi. Ashley & Don's wedding. That hot mess it was, LOL...

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    They miss you.

  • Renee Bee

    She did it before. Check archives.

  • Smartypants

    That would explain it. Yea, I just told them it was at will.

    Thanks!

  • Renee26

    Congrats to them! Still love that song...it's about self love IMO

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    30. They met in college.

  • bemetoo

    I love j Cole. Word around town is he has a massive penis. .???????????????????

  • Rayne

    Oh ok then.

  • Renee26

    In my state employers are not allowed to give that sort of info...only start date and end date. Also it's "at will" on both sides; no-one is obligated to give 2 weeks notice. At my job they don't even allow a 2 weeks notice, you leave the same day you give notice...they don't want anyone giving away their secrets I suppose.

  • MyNameIs

    I know she dragged him before but with Sandra it depends on the topic. She might just avoid the story altogether. We'll see!

  • Rayne

    Sure is. I personally don't date young but I'm glad he chose her. Whatever her age may appear to be with me doesn't matter to him. ??

  • Renee26

    My son said him and the Weekend need to link up since they rock the same hairstyles lol

  • Rayne

    I'm going in the corner with you.?

  • Renee26

    I hope they fry him without the wet sponge then inject him with the wrong poison then hang him and break the rope just before he loses consciousness then finish him of by firing squad.

  • Renee26

    I saw that mess....she was crying hot tears because he had stripper titties in his face....if only she knew what he did the night before that

  • Jen_no_juice

    They shouldn't be giving that kind of detail. Start and end dates and if you are eligible for rehire or not

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    I said I'm glad his wife is a beautiful black woman. I would still bump his music if he were married to anyone else regardless of their color. But I meant what I said. She's pretty and she's a black queen. Maybe she's mixed like him idk her like that but she got melanin and congrats to them on they new baby.

  • CakeByThePound

    I love J Cole. He just might be one of the realest ever! I love how he puts his soul into every song he makes. Can't wait for the album tomorrow!

  • Finding Forever…

    Gave me great laughs. Drunk a$$-bird-chest-having Terrance & Charmaine twerk-tities-shaking a$$. Ashley's Momma & extended family didn't even make the trip for that disaster besides her brother (whom I thought was gay at first sight), LOL. That was a telltale sign for me. Phor just keeps on carrying Kat a$$. She wannnts HIM something terrible.

  • nick c

    Give a medical or other bogus reason and do not ever use them again for a reference. Make sure you screen your references first use a coworker if possible. Try to use something more belivable then at will lol kinda sounds negative. I use my family for rental references

  • nick c

    They will try to fry you on the rehire though if it's a shady place

  • Renee26

    A hot mess! All the guest were clowning them and their shab of a marriage too. When they took their vows I got the impression that she feels like Dom is some prize and she's lucky to have him...Anther woman who doesn't understand the concept of self worth

  • countrygal

    That's against most company's policy. I even think it's against certain state's law. We can only five dates of employment and position. That's it.

  • Hugga Bunch

    I believe it.

    All those broads sloppy as fcuk. disgusting. Especially Charmaine. Ashley is a damn bird. Don ain't shyt but she so desperate to be a wife. Just a disaster.
