J. Cole, aka Jermaine, ascended to fame in the late 2000s with a string of highly celebrated and beloved mixtapes. From his debut studio album Cole World: The Sideline Story, to the classic 2014 Forest Hills Drive, and his most recent project, The Off-Season, J. Cole has gone on to release six consecutive No. 1 and multi-platinum studio albums, produce 10 top-10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, become one of the highest ticket selling touring artists, and earn 16 nominations recognizing his outstanding achievements in music. Now he can add another achievement to the list as the cover athlete for the NBA 2K23 DREAMER Edition.

While most people know J. Cole for his performances in the recording booth and on international stages, he’s a well-documented hooper as well. He starred in NBA All-Star Game events, ran drills with renowned trainer Chris Brickley, and even pursued a career in professional basketball in recent years. He's also dropped his own signature basketball sneaker worn by professional basketball players and started his own sports & lifestyle, apparel, and creative agency, DREAMER, to bring his ethos to life. J.Cole’s passion for the game and his involvement in its many facets is apparent, and the NBA 2K23 DREAMER Edition honors that devotion.
