Less than one month into a new decade and we’ve already encountered the possible beginning of World War III, a new virus that has already killed hundreds of people and we lost our beloved Kobe Bryant and his beautiful daughter Gigi. We need all the light we can get in this world today.

During times like these, we tend to look to our favorite artists for solace and guidance. Fortunately, we have stars like J. Cole that aren’t afraid to share their deepest thoughts and ‘aha’ moments with the rest of the world. Believe it or not, music scientifically helps to uplift, motivate and inspire change.

It’s been a pretty decent week for the rapper, who won his first ever (long overdue) Grammy on Sunday, and today marks his 35th trip around the sun.

In honor of all the wisdom he’s dropped on us over the years, hit the flip for J. Cole quotes that’ll help us all get through these heavy times.


Without the drugs I want you be comfortable in your skin

I know you so I know you still keep a lot of shit in

You running from yourself and you buying product again

I know you say it helps and no I’m not trying to offend

But I know depression and drug addiction don’t blend

Love Yourz

‘For what’s money without happiness and the a hard time without the people you love’ / It’s beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success/ Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress


We coming from a long bloodline of trauma

We raised by our mamas

Lord we gotta heal

We hurting our sisters

The babies as well

We killing our brothers

They poisoned the well

Distorted self image

We set up to fail

I’ma make sure that the real gon’ prevail, nigga


I saw a baby cry few minutes later he smiled, that’s the beauty of life the pain never last


Letting your guard down is honorable

‘Specially when the past ain’t been that friendly to you, but there’s magic in that

You the flower that I gotta protect

And keep alive in the wintertime, hey, don’t you die yet


“No need to fix what GOD has already put his paintbrush on”


“You have to hurt in order to know. Fall in order to grow. Lose in order to gain. Because most of life’s lessons are learned in pain.”


Meditate. Don’t medicate.”
