Roommates, Rick Ross is dropping his two cents and backing J. Cole’s decision to live out his dreams of playing basketball on Rwanda’s Patriots Basketball Club in the Basketball Africa League (BAL). If you recall, Cole made his debut with the team last weekend, scoring 3 points. Overall, he was on the court for nearly 16 minutes. While many of Cole’s fans were excited to see him on the court, not everyone had the same sentiments.
Terrell Stoglin, guard of Morrocco’s Basketball Club AS Salé, told ESPN that he feels as though the spot could have gone to someone he feels deserves it, saying Cole’s presence in the league is “disrespectful to the game.”
However, Rick Ross feels otherwise. Expressing that he means no disrespect, Rozay stated, “Should no Black man’s dreams be censored nor limited.” He continued on to say Terrell should be supporting J. Cole. Rozay further states that if Terrell had a dream of being in the music industry or any other industries that he and Cole are a part of, he wouldn’t hold it against him–that is as long as he’s bringing something positive to the table.
Cole has a history of basketball and has been vocal about it in his music. Real Cole fans know that he was a star player in high school. He played at Sanford High School in North Carolina and was a walk-on player at St. John’s College in New York. This isn’t the first time a rapper has stepped away from music to pursue a career in basketball. Master P chased his basketball dreams and had a brief stint with the Charlotte Hornets in 1998.
Roommates, do ya’ll agree with Rick Ross, or with Terrell Stoglin?
