“Sources: J. Cole signs a contract with the Scarborough Shooting Stars (@sss_cebl) in the Canadian Elite Basketball League, and the rap star is performing professionally for the second year in a row. The CEBL training camp started this week and the season opened on May 26. ”
The Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) also confirmed the news on Instagram, writing: “@scarboroughshootingstars signed 6’3 guards, @realcoleworld. The last time he played professionally was @thebal. #LetsBall #OurGame ».

Sources told ESPN “The Undefeated” that the rapper had fulfilled all the obligations listed in his contract, and headed home from Africa “because of family obligations.”
