As J. Cole transitioned from up-and-coming rapper to full-blown vet, he came to a realization: staying sharp and fighting off complacency ain’t easy. Inspired by his love for basketball and his desire to remain on top of the game, the 36-year-old has been treating music like a competitive sport while he readies his next project: The Off-Season.
