If you know my mama, you know me
If ya don't then well I'm sorry, you should get to know Kay
Man she been workin' too hard,

from J. Cole – Dollar And A Dream III Lyrics on Rap Genius


Those that truly know him know his mother. Cole uses a clever play on words with “Kay.” It is short for Okay as well as “Kay” literally being him mom’s name. He constantly credit’s his mom for raising him without his dad thus the shout out to her “workin too hard.”
