J.Cole finished with a dual degree in business and communications from St.Johns a while back but when he returned this week for a special performance, for current student and fellow alumni, he was in for surprise.

While hanging out backstage with Village Voice, Cole admitted that he never received his diploma because he owed a fee for an overdue library book. If you have any outstanding fee, that translates to money. There’s a price associated with it. I never paid. That’s why I don’t have my degree.” However, all that has changed now. A number of faculty members paid a visit to J.Cole in the green room and presented him with his college degree that night.

Now Cole can finally show his mom his college degree.
