J. Cole Spotted Taking Bus in Queens, New York


He may have gone platinum with no features, but that’s not stopping him from taking the bus.

J. Cole was seen taking the bus in Queens, New York earlier this week. A fan snapped a pic with the humble rapper and posted it to Instagram with the caption, “J Cole was seen riding the public bus in Queens. This man is as humble and down to earth as they come. He sold over 1 million records and has well over a million dollars in his bank. But he understands our struggle from which he came. The game hasn’t changed him. There’s a lot of people who aren’t rich and wouldn’t ride public transportation. J Cole is a one of a kind artist. We may never see an artist for the people like this again. 🙏🏾💯 *Check out the rest of my page, you’ll enjoy what you see.”

As the excited fan pointed out, Cole is an artist for the people. He understands the struggle and he doesn’t let his current success overshadow his past. Despite his mountain of success, the 31-year-old rapper has maintained a humble appearance and lifestyle.

According to Forbes, Cole earned an estimated $11 million in 2015, so not only can he afford bus fare but in reality he can afford to buy the bus and everyone on it. No joke.
