If you needed another excuse to like J. Cole how about this—he’s opening his now infamous childhood home, 2014 Forrest Hills Drive, for single mothers with multiple children rent-free for two years.

Cole first talked about this in his interview with The Combat Jack Show and said he doesn’t live in the house, but instead wanted to use it to help others who are struggling.
He goes on further to say:
“What we gon’ do, we still working it out right now. Obviously it’s a detailed, fragile situation I don’t want to play with. My goal is to have that be a haven for families. So, every two years a new family will come in, they live rent-free. The idea is that it’s a single mother with multiple kids, they’re sharing a room. She gets to come here rent-free. I want kids to feel how I felt when we got to the house.
If that isn’t giving back, I don’t know what is. Cole continues to raise the bar to unknown heights in the philanthropy department and set a real example for how artists can use their success to buoy others less fortunate. Salute and Happy Birthday!
