THE MOGUL MINUTE : ENJOY, FEEL, AND REMEMBER THE MOMENT J.COLE FOREST HILLS DRIVE HOMECOMING MOVIE ( THE MOGUL GIRL)
"The opportunity is in your mentality"- J.Cole
Tonight J.Cole released his "Forest Hills Drive Homecoming" on HBO. The concert film included a full show from J.Cole, interviews from his supporters, interviews with people from his home-town Fayetteville, North Carolina, his friends, his mom, and his video updates from himself. I really enjoyed watching the concert although I wish I could've attended the actual tour and see him perform live. Sidebar : I really want some Krispey Kreme so bad (laughs). J.Cole is very motivational and his town looks up to him because he showed them that they can make it. One of the interviewees referred to him as the "King of Fayetteville". J.Cole expressed that he wants to do more for his town and that he even contemplates becoming mayor or city council one day. The fact that J.Cole was driving and just sharing his thoughts and feelings it emitted a very personal vibe as if we were actually riding with him. He expressed that it's so important to enjoy, remember, feel, and soak in the moment and appreciate everything. J.Cole's album "2014 Forest Hills Drive" is certified Gold. The album was definitely a game changer in the world of hip hop . During the film he talked about stepping into a new chapter in life in which he's focused on becoming a better human, a better man, and just grow as a person. The interview from his mom was so sweet and loving. You can tell she's proud of her son. She said "I tell Jermaine everyone loves him but not as much as me". She was so happy and expressed that people will be talking about her son's concert and music for decades.
Just watching J.Cole perform and tell his story on stage is inspiring. Again shout out to my friend Davon Gaskins for putting me on J.Cole in college (I will forever thank him for that lol). Just seeing J.Cole talk about wanting to perform at Crown Coliseum in his hometown and then for it to actually happen is just proof that if we stay focused and dedicated we can make it anywhere. When I purchased "2014 Forest Hill Drive" and listened to it straight through I realized the first word on the album was "Do" and the last word was "Love" ( I wrote about thathere) . That's what counts in this life! Love is so important. We have to love ourselves, each other, the things we have, and our gifts and talents. J.Cole definitely appreciated his fans for supporting him and he brought out Drake and Jay Z to perform. For updates on @JColeNC follow him on Twitter. S/o to J.Cole and the entire Dreamville !!
