Rapper J.Cole and former NC State star teaming up to play pro ball in Africa

Headlining the “news you weren’t expecting on a Monday” is this story of one of the most prominent rappers today, J.Cole, teaming up with former NC State star Brandon Costner to play for the Rwanda Patriots in what seems to be called the ‘Basketball Africa League.’

J.Cole, while known for rapping, is obviously no scrub on the court. You can verify that by the fact that Detroit Pistons gave him an extended tryout in August of 2020, or you could take our word for it, since a few of our writers have played alongside him at Lifetime Sports in Raleigh.

J.Cole is also no stranger to NC State. The Fayetteville native used to hang around and play pickup with the team during the Dennis Smith years.

He also repped the Pack in one of his music videos…

And now it seems he’s back in NC State’s practice gym hanging with Cam Hayes and working out with Brandon Costner (pictured in the background) as they prep for their pro-season.

 

We’ll keep you updated on how Costner and J.Cole do over in Africa. And for those of you who are saying “who the heck cares about this!?” Well, it’s May 10th and content is slow, people. So take what you cant get!
