Rapper J. Cole wants to continue his basketball career. As reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania, he signs a contract with the Scarborough Shooting Stars in the Canadian Elite Basketball League. This is his second season as a pro after being part of the Patriots Basketball Club in the Basketball Africa League last season.

His experience with the Patriots was pretty limited. The 6’3″ guard came off the bench in three group games before departing on “family commitments” last May ESPN’s Marc J. Spears. J. Cole was only scheduled to play three to six games, so he fulfilled his contract obligation. He played a total of 45 minutes in which he accumulated five points, three assists and five rebounds.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper, who turned 37 in January, had some basketball experience before turning pro. He played at Terry Sanford High School before becoming a walk-on for the St. John’s Red Storm. He certainly put on a show in 2012, playing for the East Team during the NBA All-Star Weekend Celebrity Game.

The CEBL started 2019 with six teams but has since expanded to 10 franchises. The training camp is running this week, and the regular season is scheduled to start on May 26th. The Shooting Stars start Thursday with a game against the Guelph Nighthawks.
