About the artist from Wikipedia.

Jermaine Lamarr Cole (born January 28, 1985), better known as his stage name J. Cole (often stylized as J.Cole), is an American rapper, producer and actor. He is best known for being the first artist to be signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation.

Cole was born in Frankfurt, Germany and, before the age of 1, moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina, where he was raised by his mother. Cole attended Terry Sanford High School in Fayetteville, and graduated in 2003. He decided that he had a better chance of getting signed in New York City, so he attended St. John’s University on an academic scholarship where he majored in communication and minored in business, graduating magna cum laude.

  1. [...] U2 was formed in 1977 when fourteen year old Larry Mullen Jr. posted a notice on his school notice board seeking musicians for a new band. They were called Feedback and The Hype before settling on the name, U2. On St. Patrick’s Day 1978, they won a battle of the bands using the prize money to record a demo which impressed Paul McGuinness enough to become their manager and they were subsequently signed to CBS Records. Island Records signed the band in early 1980, their UK debut, 11 O’Clock Tick Tock was well received by the critics but failed to chart. Their debut album, Boy, was released to critical acclaim and included their first hit single, I Will Follow. Their subsequent tour of Europe and America, these live shows revealed U2’s potential with Bono’s passion and the band’s musical prowess. October, their second album was released in 1981, it was a much more mellow and spiritual record than their debut reflecting the Christian beliefs of Bono, The Edge and Larry Mullen Jr. The album met with a lukewarm reception form the critics and it received limited radio airplay. However, their subsequent album, War was acclaimed by critics and was a commercial success, it entered the UK charts at number 1. They recorded the live album Under a Blood Red Sky on the War tour, it received extensive play on radio and MTV bringing the band to a wider audience. The Unforgettable Fire was released in 1984, produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois; it displayed a more complex, polished and mature sound. The first single, Pride (In the Name of Love) was their biggest hit at that point and illustrated the passion, idealism and humanity of the band. That year they played Live Aid, Self Aid, became involved with Amnesty International and contributed to Little Steven’s anti-apartheid single Sun City. Their following LP The Joshua Tree confirmed U2 as one of the biggest bands on the planet reaching number 1 in twenty-two countries, remaining at the top spot in the US charts for nine weeks and putting them on the cover of TIME magazine. The documentary Rattle and Hum featured footage recorded from the subsequent tour, they also released an accompanying LP of the same name, from which the single Desire gave the band their first UK number 1.
