Source: Chynna Keys – @madenchynna / Dreamville Festival Less than one month into a new decade and we’ve already encountered the possible beginning of World War III, a new virus that has already killed hundreds of people and we lost our beloved Kobe Bryant and his beautiful daughter Gigi. We need all the light we can get in this world today. During times like these, we tend to look to our favorite artists for solace and guidance. Fortunately, we have stars like J. Cole that aren’t afraid to share their deepest thoughts and ‘aha’ moments with the rest of the world. Believe it or not, music scientifically helps to uplift, motivate and inspire change. It’s been a pretty decent week for the rapper, who won his first ever (long overdue) Grammy on Sunday, and today marks his 35th trip around the sun. In honor of all the wisdom he’s dropped on us over the years, hit the flip for J. Cole quotes that’ll help us all get through these heavy times.
