This is the story of J Cole's humble beginnings, his hard work and his rise to the top, all whilst remaining the realist rapper in the game.
The North Carolina rapper rerouted his tour to meet fan.
J Cole visited a high school student's graduation after making a promise to the fan two years ago that he would be there when she graduated.
The 'Wet Dreamz' star, attended Cierra Bosarge’s graduation ceremony at Washington Township High School following a letter he received from the student.
Bosarge wrote to Cole in 2013, inviting him to attend. The North Carolina rapper replied, promised to come on one condition: “I will be at your graduation only IF you get into a 4 year University”.

The two kept in touch on Twitter with Bosarge sharing her progress. When she received offers from several colleges, Cole kept up his promise and traveled to meet her – even rerouting his tour.

Cole even brought a few books as gifts and offered to help with the student’s college fees.
he bought me a few books that he likes and he's said he's gonna help me with my college tuition.— I DID IT. (@princess_simba) June 24, 2015
