J Cole is no longer a rookie in this game anymore as the rapper is signing a second professional contract to play basketball. Cole will be suiting up for the Scarborough Shooting Stars of the Canadian Elite Basketball League. This per Shams Charania of the Athletic.

Last season he signed with a professional team in Rwanda and appeared in 3 games, so its hard to truly judge him as a player. This is likely a cash grab for the CEBL but Cole can apparently hoop a bit. He was planning on trying out for the St. Johns basketball team back in college but decided to focus on music (that worked out well) and decided to revisit his love of the game recently.

When asked about being an inspiration for kids out there who love both music and sports Cole said

“No role models and im here right now. No role models to speak of.”
