The 29 year old rapper who has already made his mark on hip hop with his soulful, poignant and always relatable lyrics that address both childhood and adolescent issues, struggles from the hood and racial injustices, is now working to leave his mark on the world.
Coming off the great success of his latest album, 2014 Forrest Hills Drive, Jermaine Lamarr Cole will now be loaning out his childhood home, of the same address to single mothers in need of a place to stay. Every two years a new family will have the opportunity to get back on their feet and live in the home on the outskirts of Fayetteville, NC for free.
With first hand experience of what it feels like to live in poverty, Cole’s intention his to keep young kids from experiencing the same things he did and having to go without like he once did.
It’s always a beautiful thing to see those who make it genuinely remember where they came from and do something to improve the lives of those currently dealing with their old struggles.
