Singer, songwriter, rapper, and producer, J. Cole, is known to be a man of many talents… But, this is one talent we didn’t see coming!

The ‘No Role Modelz’ singer was recently signed to the Canadian Elite Basketball League’s Scarborough Shooting Stars. So, he can now add basketball to his curriculum vitae.

According to Mr. Wavvy at Cult Mtl, “The team was co-founded by Drake affiliate OVO Niko. Drake and Cole are longtime friends and collaborators, working together on tracks such as “Jodeci Freestyle” and the 2011 fan favourite “In the Morning.””

The best part about this news? J. Cole fans will be able to see him play against the Montreal Alliance team on Sunday, May 29 at the Verdun Auditorium. 

Fans can watch the game live at the link here or in-person at 4:00pm ET.
