I came up, fucked the game up
Show my momma I’ll survive on my own
J. Cole came up from little. He was brought up by a single mother, and had a troubled childhood seeing his brother go to jail. However he persevered, graduated college and moved to New York to pursue his dreams. Now, he’s releasing his debut album and climbing to the top with the backing of Jay-Z. He’s even had the honor of being the first Roc Nation signing. His mom has to know by now, she has an independent son.
