J. Cole is no stranger to doing big gestures for his fans. In May, he attended a fan’s college graduation after previously attending her high school graduation, following a letter she wrote to him in 2013.
“In the letter it says all I went through,” she told Complex in 2015. “With being adopted, my parents being hooked on drugs, in and out of prison. At the time both parents were in prison so I asked him could he come to my graduation since they can’t.”
She added, “That man has done so much for me. He planned his tour around my day. I could never thank him enough. He’s God’s gift. Every night I prayed for this day and it really came. I did it. He told us all his struggles through music and I seen how far he made it. Now it’s my turn. I gotta keep making Cole proud.”
