***HELPING THE COMMUNITY*** #CelebNews J.COLE TURNS HIS CHILDHOOD FOREST HILL DRIVE HOME INTO FREE HOUSING FOR SINGLE MOTHERS!

Rapper J. Cole took it back to his roots to do something great for the women in need in his community. During a time where single mothers don't always get the help, support or justice for themselves and their children J. Cole switches things up. Sources report one of the most endearing aspects of J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive release was the rapper’s willingness to both literally and figuratively invite fans into his childhood home. Now, Cole is apparently taking it a step further and recently announced plans to use the house as a rent-free haven for single mothers with multiple children. Via The Urban Daily: Detailing the family dynamics that allowed Cole, his
brother, and mother to move to Forest Hills Drive, the N.C. emcee opened up about hearing the news his mother had lost the house and his decision years later to buy it back himself. While he says he doesn’t live there himself, Cole broke down his ambition to flip the property into something more. “Nah, I don’t really live there,” he said. “What we gon’ do, we still working it out right now, obviously it’s a detailed, fragile situation I don’t wanna play with.
My goal is to have that be a haven for families. So every two years a new family will come in, they live rent-free. The idea is that it’s a single mother with multiple kids and she’s coming from a place where all her kids is sharing a room. She might have two, three kids, they’re sharing a room. She gets to come here rent free. I want her kids to feel how I felt when we got to the house.” Still, Cole joked about the unwanted attention the property has gotten since the album release. “By the way, tell people to stop going to my house and sitting on my roof taking pictures,” he said. “And they stealing the f*cking street sign.”

WAY TO GO J.COLE... CONTINUE THE GREAT SERVICE FOR THE COMMUNITY!
