J. Cole is our Crush of the Week because he is a man of action. Since his music career began four years ago, he imagined traveling to colleges to have conversations with youth about the music business and its role in society. Ironically, that vision is starting to take place since Harvard University invited him to host a lecture (and concert) on February 26th. He recently shared with Interview Magazine what inspired him to begin college tours:

“It was inspired by, when I was in college, seeing some incredible speakers come to my school: Michael Eric Dyson, Spike Lee, Nikki Giovanni, and other poets and writers. I always loved that experience: going and sitting in an auditorium and listening to their opinions.”

J. Cole’s second album Born Sinner is set for release spring 2013.
