Sometimes she hate the way she raised me but she love what she raised
His mother hates how he had to grow up; her not being able to provide much, being broke, him having to witness her abuse drugs, and having a not so good step-father. He speaks on his step-father in a couple songs, but specifically in the 2nd verse of “Can I Holla At Ya”
Through everything he’s witnessed as a child, his mother loves that she raised such a positive, intelligent, talented, humbled man. In interviews, Cole would mention his mother being a huge influence on him and would always motivate to be great in whatever it is that he is doing.
I use to tell my son that all those people who made it are no more creative or intelligent or talented than you. They just never gave up. I would love to tell any child that’s got an inkling of a dream to never give up.” — Kay Cole
