There isn't any rule that says that you can only do one thing. If you have multiple talents, you might as well make the most of them. If you don't take our word for it, just ask Hip-hop star, J. Cole.

For years, Cole has shown his hooping skills, playing pick-up with NBA and NFL players, taking part in the All-Star Game weekend, and posting some footage on social media.

In fact, some people even joked and said that he should sign with his hometown Charlotte Hornets to give them a scoring punch off the bench.

Well, what seemed like a joke and a wild fantasy could one day become a reality, as the world famous rapper has recently signed a deal with Patriots B.B.C of Rwanda to play some games in the Basketball Africa League:

"Sources: American rap star J. Cole is signing a deal in the Basketball Africa League with Rwanda's Patriots B.B.C. J. Cole will play 3-to-6 games, the first of which on Sunday vs. Nigeria," Shams Charania of The Athletic reported.

Needless to say, this news became viral in the blink of an eye, and NBA fans a lot to say about it:

It's worth noting that Cole was a standout at Terry Sanford High School in North Carolina before walking on at St. John's University. And even though he chose a more lucrative and successful path as a performer, he never truly gave up on his biggest hobby.

Cole has been quite active as of late, releasing the documentary "Applying Pressure: The Off-Season Documentary" ahead of his long-awaited album "The Off-Season," but that hasn't prevented him from working on his game. So yeah, the ball is on your court now, Dame D.O.L.L.A.
