J. Cole used to work at a skate rink in Fayetteville where, at times, he had to dress up as a kangaroo, the skating rink's mascot.
A lot of J. Cole's everyman appeal comes from the fact that he lived such an average life. Like many of us, he had a series of fairly crappy jobs growing up. As a teenager, he worked at a skating rink where he had to occasionally dress up as a damn kangaroo. And you think your job sucks.
