J. Cole makes a visit to San Quentin State Prison

J. Cole has always been vocal about his views on Mass Imprisonment and has gone a step further and visited inmates who have been  handed Life Sentences. Taking time from his 4 Your Eyez Only Tour Cole attended the visit along with Dreamville’s head of art direction Felton Brown and Cole’s Manager Ibrahim Hamad “We got the opportunity to spend the day at San Quentin State Prison talking and meeting inmates who will never see the outside again. That experience was a life changing experience and I wish I had the ability to put in a caption but that wouldn’t be doing it justice” -Hamad

If this doesn’t seem like a big deal to you then I guess you have never lost a loved one to the justice system. Prison has become the sad reality for many men and woman all over this country; no more factories and warehouses. The Prison system is a business that has proven to be lucrative for this country, along with a prehistoric justice system that necessarily apply to the way we currently live in today’s society. J. Cole has made it a priority to speak on this and has based part of his show on the  4 Your Eyez Only Tour, dressing in a orange prison suit and being escorted out by C.O’s.

“Spent a day with some brothers whose stories go unheard behind the wall. Learned a lot, so much work to be done,” Brown wrote on his own Instagram post. “This system will try to not give you a voice but we’re listening.”- Brown
