Growing up in a musical family with his dad having a recording studio in their apartment, this 18-year-old has released a total of six independent projects since the young age of 4. When he reached junior high, Cole realized that music was his calling and what he wanted to pursue it wholeheartedly.
“I remember in junior high just enjoying being a regular kid, but I would get picked on because I wasn’t smoking, drinking or getting in trouble,” shares Cole. “One afternoon I came home and told my dad what was going on and why, and he shared that he thought I was called for a purpose and that this calling would cost me to not be like everyone else. It was that moment that I encountered God for the first time for myself, and I knew I was born to do this and began writing and putting my own songs together.”
Describing his music as a hybrid between R&B, pop and hip-hop, Cole’s music is a perfect blend of styles with a messages that range from pursuing your dreams, life issues to keeping God first. His vocal talents have been featured on songs by Hollyn, Canon, Deraj and DJ Maj. In 2016, Cole was inducted into Christian Hip Hop’s top media outlet Rapzilla’s Freshman Class and noted by Essence Magazine as one of 16 gospel artists to watch. His 2016 EP If I Can Be Honest debuted top 30 on the iTunes Rap/Hip Hop albums charts and was named the year’s Best Free Project by Rapzilla.
