J. Cole Surprises Fan At Her High School Graduation

(Radio.com) If you didn't already think J. Cole was a stand-up guy, this story is bound to sway you. Back in 2013, a female fan who goes by the Twitter handle @princess_simba sent J.Cole a letter (via Reddit) telling him about her life and asking if he would show up to her high school graduation.

Cole agreed, but gave one stipulation--he would only come if she got into a four-year university. Cole was definitely not playing around, but neither was this fan, who tweeted at Cole last year to see if he approved of her grades. To which he responded, "Very much. Keep going."

She did and now she's a high school graduate on her way to a 4-year college. And guess who was there to watch her get that diploma? Why yes, Cole showed up and there are pictures to prove it.

Taking a page from Taylor Swift's book, Cole also plans to help this fan pay for part of her tuition. That is definitely the best graduation gift ever. Later, Cole's friend, Ibrahim Hamad, tweeted congratulations and revealed that Cole had scheduled his tour around her big day. See the posts here.
