J. Cole’s childhood home in Fayetteville, North Carolina has been vandalised. On the front of the house, graffiti with the words “J.Cole...Do you even care about the ville?” was spray painted.
A few years ago Cole bought the home to be a rent-free residence for single mothers and their families. In 2015, he said “My goal is to have that be a haven for a family. So every two years, a new family will come in and live rent-free. The idea is that it's a single mother with multiple kids. I want her kids to feel how I felt when we got the house.”

Did this person take the time out to ask what they are doing? But this person probably a lost person. Not all support is putting rappers on pic.twitter.com/pVRir361T6
The graffiti has since been painted over, and Cole's team is yet to make a public statement regarding the incident.
