J. Cole is having a great year so far.
First he goes platinum, and it the first solo artist to do so without a musical feature in decades. Now, he’s also received his college degree.
He graduated from St. John’s university years back, but due to a never-returned library book, his degree was withheld from him.
Yesterday, Cole returned to the university to play a show, and while he didn’t bring the missing book with him, the school decided to waive the fee and present the rapper with his degree.
The college is certainly happy to have Cole as a rep, as the rapper has not only found great success in the rap world, but also graduated Summa cum laude with a 3.82 GPA.
