J. Cole Turns Childhood Home into Free Housing for Single Moms

By Jamilah King Jan 28, 2015

Rapper J. Cole already paid homage to his childhood home in Fayetteville, N.C., by naming his latest album, "2014 Forest Hills Drive," after it. But the rapper’s family later lost the home to foreclosure. After earning fame and fortune as an artist, Cole eventually purchased the home, and during an interview this week he revealed that he plans to house single mothers rent-free in it.

"My goal is to have that be a haven for families," he said during an interview with "The Combat Jack Show." "Every two years, a new family will come in; they live rent-free."
