J. Cole is a major figure in the music industry, but it’s time for him to return to his roots. J. Cole is once again seeking a professional basketball career, this time with the Scarborough Shooting Stars of Canada’s league, as we previously reported. According to Complex, Nicholas “OVO Niko” Corino, who co-owns the squad with Sam Ibrahim, Drake was instrumental in putting the deal together for his fellow Rap billionaire.
Corino explained, “You know, Dreamville and OVO are family.” “Last year, Drake had a birthday celebration in Los Angeles. ‘I heard you have your team,’ the conversation went. From there, everything grew naturally.”
Cole’s humility and love for the game were also lauded by Jamaal Magloire, the Shooting Stars’ vice president, according to Complex.
“He just wants to be treated the same,” Magloire reportedly remarked. “I felt it was very admirable since he is a very special individual.” “In terms of his ability, he’s played this game professionally in Africa, so this is his second spell.” We’ve brought him in to play, contribute, and assist us in winning games. That is also his desire. It’ll be a lot of fun, and it’ll be beneficial to Scarborough and Toronto.”
Drake, on the other hand, is currently focused on Cole’s Scarborough debut. As he watched Cole on the court, the OVO icon uploaded a photo of his television screen. Drizzy wrote in the caption, “It’s genuine @scarboroughshootingstars my brother just checked in [fingers crossed emoji].”
