Reminds me of the intro j cole did on the come up I think, when he talks about this kid who went and practiced his basketball and was really dedicated, went to try outs but didn't make cut, that kid was J Cole, imagine if that kid's dream had come true we'd never would've the blessing that is J Cole

I'm a simple man. See J. Cole, click. In other news, its hard to sample this without hearing the kanye track. Idk if he should've picked this sample cus of that, but just IMO after listening once.

I’m sure those who dreamt of playing pro ball felt everything about this video 🥺🤦🏾‍♂️ it’s crazy all of our stories relate but nobody’s are exactly the same...its mysterious how the game can lead everybody different ways into doing different things...whatever your dream is keep dreaming...the ball will always be there waiting pro or not

Reminds me of when I was a kid at the park, we would wait till the grown folks would go on the other end of the court and hurry up to run and play a little bit before they came back down on the opposing hoop. Good times ☮️

This really resinated with me on a deep level. Being born with spinal Bifida I used to always sit on the sideline watching the basket ball games wishing I could play, fast forward to now a grown man watching the rap game feeling the same way. Seeing Cole inspires me so much cause we are both dreamers from North Carolina. Truly appreciate you Cole.
