Jermaine Lamarr Cole (born January 28, 1985), known professionally as J. Cole, is an American rapper, songwriter and record producer. Raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Cole initially gained recognition as a rapper following the release of his debut mixtape, The Come Up, in early 2007. Intent on further pursuing a solo career as a rapper, he would go on to release two additional mixtapes after signing to Jay Z's Roc Nation imprint in 2009. Cole would release his debut studio album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, in 2011 to critical and commercial success. Cole World: The Sideline Story would debut at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, and was soon certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). His next two releases, 2013's Born Sinner and 2014's 2014 Forest Hills Drive, were worldwide successes, with certifications of gold and double platinum respectively in U.S. sales, with the latter earning him his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album. 2014 Forest Hills Drive was also the first rap album in over 25 years to gain platinum certification without any guest appearances or features. Self-taught on piano, Cole also acts as a producer alongside his hip hop career, producing hit singles for artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Janet Jackson, as well as handling the majority of the production in his own projects. He has also developed other ventures, including Dreamville Records, as well as non-profit organization, the Dreamville Foundation.
