His debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story was released in September 2011. The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, Top R&B Albums and Top Rap Albums chart, selling more than 218,000 in its first week. In addition, Cole received a nomination for Best New Artist at the 54th GRAMMY Awards. Cole’s most recent effort, Born Sinner, was released on June 18, 2013. The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, and then Born Sinner later rose to number one, giving Cole his second number one on the chart.

The first artist signed to Jay-Z’s new Roc Nation label, Cole made himself notable through a scholarly approach to the game – no small feat considering his Magna Cum Laude distinction upon graduating from St. John’s University. Steadily developing his lyrical skills since the age 12, Cole studied not only the important musical and lyrical content of his youth, but the strategic career moves made by his influential forefathers.

Taking from his favorite artists a love for powerful storytelling with an intense inner-strength, J. Cole advanced to writing his own lyrics at 15, soon amassing stacks of notebooks filled with rhymes and observations. Without a DJ or producer to provide a beat, he industriously started creating his own using a beat machine given as a present by his mother. From then on J. Cole was constantly creating new music and lyrics leading to his current and flow.

The Mowgli’s
Five childhood friends from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, augmented by three Midwestern transplants, The Mowgli’s are a quintessential California band. Inspired by the magnetism of San Francisco, the grind of Los Angeles and the serenity of the Big Sur Coast, their songs are a joyous revival of rock n’ roll, a twisting indie-folk dance and a heartfelt protest ballad. The Mowgli’s are known for their song “San Francisco”, which reached number 11 on Billboard‘s alternative chart in 2013.

A Queens, NY based rapper who recently released the mixtape “ Quarter Water Raised Me. Vol. 2” and is featured with 50 Cent on J. Cole’s single, “New York Times.”
