Fayetteville’s (North Carolina) own Jermaine Cole, better known as hip-hop artist J. Cole is changing his status with the game of basketball from hobby to part-time job.

According to NBA reporter Shams Charania, Cole signed to play in the Basketball Africa League for three to six games with the Rwanda B.BC. Patriots. Former N.C. State forward Brandon Costner is also on that roster.

Their first game will be Sunday against Nigeria.

N.C. State men’s basketball coach Kevin Keatts is not surprised to see Cole signed with a league. Cole was playing in pickup games with former Wolfpack star T.J. Warren at the Dail Basketball Practice Facility on campus when Keatts first met him. Keatts said Cole has good size for a guard, can shoot the ball well and overall is a ‘really, really good basketball player.”

“When I saw it (news of his signing), I wasn’t shocked,” Keatts told The News & Observer. “I was actually like that’s very interesting, because he can play.”
