In addition to dropping what is soon-to-be the number one album in the land, J. Cole just made his professional basketball debut with the Rwanda Patriots of the newly formed Basketball Africa League.
In their game against the Nigeria River Hoopers, Cole entered in the first quarter and scored his first basket on a putback on a fast break.
