By age 14, Cole had notebooks filled with rhymes, but no way to record them himself. His mother bought him an 808 beat machine so he could produce music himself.

Shortly after the release, Cole was contacted by American rapper Jay-Z and signed to his record label Roc Nation. In 2009, Cole released his second mixtape, “The Warm Up”, which was itself followed by Cole’s third mixtape, “Friday Night Lights”, in 2010. In 2011, Cole toured with Drake as a supporting act. Cole’s 2013 album”Born Sinner” debuted at number two on the Billboard charts with 297,000 records sold, just 30,000 short of the number one album, Kanye West’s “Yeezus”.
