Master P  on J Cole for the NBA

Master P is among the few individuals who have turned their second dream into reality. He played in NBA during the 1998 and 1999 pre seasons after a successful career as a rapper.

J Cole wants to repeat what Master P was able to do. Master P has talked to J Cole about the same and he has some interesting insights to tell.

Master P told TMZ that “ When I talked to J. Cole, he was like ‘You know, the big dog you did it. What do you think I would have to do to make it happen?, I said to get one of these NBA jerseys, it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be a lot of hate, it’s gonna be a lot of people not believing in you but you know J. Cole – he got the right size, he in the gym!”

Where did the inspiration come from?

Last week J Cole came up with a 30 second commercial for his Puma Basketball Sneaker. The commercial shows J Cole training hard on the court and Master P narrates the story for the commercial.

The standard for the NBA is world-class, individuals train from childhood, and still do not get a chance to play in the NBA. The league is for the best and one needs to prove his potential to enter the world’s best Basketball league and to remain in it.
