In a recent letter for “The Players Tribune” titled “The Audacity,” the Carolina rapper revealed he has two sons. Fans originally thought he had a daughter but during a 2018 interview with Angie Martinez, it was revealed otherwise.
“Four years have passed. In that time I’ve been blessed with two sons, learned the delicate art of balance between parenthood and career, had the pleasure of working with a ton of talented artists as a featured rapper, spent 10 magical days recording a Dreamville album in Atlanta, and put a lot of time and energy into sharpening my sword and growing as an artist,” Cole wrote in the letter.
On the Revenge of the Dreamers III album, he rapped about his wife, Melissa Heholt, giving him a son and then expecting a second.
Elsewhere in the letter Cole talks about retirement writing about his, “long term plan of becoming the best rapper I could possibly be before hanging up my jersey, leaving nothing on the table when all was said and done.”
