While on his 4 Your Eyez Only tour, J. Cole paid a visit to San Quentin State Prison — the only prison in the state that houses death row inmates.
Cole of course is no stranger from the community. He’s been a part of Eric Garner protests in New York as well as Ferguson, Baton Rouge and Jonesboro.
“We got the opportunity to spend the day at San Quentin State Prison talking and meeting inmates who will never see the outside again,” Cole’s manager, Ibrahim Hamad, wrote on Instagram. “That experience was a life changing experience and wish I had the ability to put that in a caption but that wouldn’t be doing it justice.”
