Rapper J Cole visits young fan battling cancer in hospital


US RAPPER J Cole made one fan’s day by joining him in hospital as he underwent cancer treatment.

Tae Stackhouse, who cites Cole as his favourite rapper, got a chance to meet the performer after his mother and aunt contacted him when he was taken ill.

Cole, real name Jermaine Lamarrr Cole, visited the young man at the North Carolina Cancer Hospital in his native Fayetteville.

Stackhouse revealed that the rapper gave him some encouragement in his difficult battle.

The 30-year-old rapper did not share the visit publicly, but it became public knowledge after Stackhouse posted an image of the two on social media with the caption:

“I really appreciate this just wanna [want to] give a big s/o to my mom and my aunt for bringing my favourite rapper to see me,” Stackhouse wrote on Faceboook. “I'm proud to say that I'm blessed even tho [though] I have cancer he told me to keep positive so that's what Ima [I will] do thanks j.cole ‪#‎RoleModel."

According to a recent Facebook status, Stackhouse has had a trying year. He shared that the news of his cancer diagnosis came after the death of his daughter and trouble with the law.

J Cole is changing lives with both his music and his actions after establishing The Dreamville Foundation in 2011.

The non-profit organisation works with young people to achieve their goals through programmes and events and also to improve the reading and comprehension among young men.

The Crooked Smile rapper is known for similar acts of kindness, which include spending the evening at a fans home to host a personal listening session of his award winning album 2014 Forest Hills Drive and attending another fan’s graduation as fulfilment on her promise to maintain good grades and a place at university.
