J.Cole is the Truth! Read his thoughts on University
I don’t normally write about singers or rappers but this time round J Cole is the exception! Just when I thought I couldn’t love him any more than I already do, he went and won my heart all over again during his interview with Tavis Smiley.
As always his interviews just brighten up my day. I love the way this man’s mind works. Whether it is through his music, his interviews or his support of black communities, he addresses and brings to light real life issues. This time it was his concerns about the education system that spoke to me and how currently, it’s only designed for us to retain information to take a test and try and achieve good grades, rather than actually equipping and preparing us for life!
I couldn’t agree more with his views on college (university). The institution will only require you to revise or learn about specific modules/topics but what about the 100 other parts you haven’t learnt about that field? Although I am doing a masters course right now, and I am pro-education, sometimes you learn a lot more from independent learning…doing your own research on topics above and beyond the confines of your syllabus, sometimes you have to help yourself!
I see J.Cole as a positive inspiration to our generation and a lot of us can learn a lot from him… I wont drone on any longer about my love for him but do check out the interview for yourselves:
