And that’s not everything, he made a bigger announcement on one of the songs off the album ‘sacrifices’, where he showed his romantic part talking about his relationship with his wife of over 10 years.
J Cole talked about how she stood by him through all his ups and downs in life. Giving him a place to rest when stressed and not being another stress. He praised his wife Melissa Heholt on ‘Sacrifices’ and also made it known that another baby is on the way.
“I had nowhere to go, she gave me a place to stay, she gave me her heart to hold, I still got that shit to this day,” he begins, more vulnerable than usual. “She ridin’ with me on the road, she ridin’ with me in the A, huggin’ the block, huggin’ the block, okay.”
Given that declarations of monogamous love can feel rare in hip-hop, it’s refreshing to see Cole open up about his more romantic inclinations. And now, the couple will be reaping the benefits of an expanded and happy home.
“She gave me the gift of my son, and plus we got one on the way,” he confirms, sharing the news with the world. “She gave me a family to love, for that, I can never repay, I’m crying while writing these words, the tears, they feel good on my face.”
