J. Cole is supposedly prepared to play a few games in the NBA and FIBA’s Basketball Africa League.

In a tweet by Rwandan newspaper The New Times, the Dreamville head is currently in Rwanda and is reportedly listed as one of the possibly four foreign players for the Kigali-based club, the Patriots. Neither Cole nor his management have confirmed this, however.

The Basketball Africa League was initially announced in February 2019 and formally introduced in March this year. The first season is set to kick off on May 16, and will include a total of 12 teams with at least eight local players and up to four foreign players on each of their rosters. Champions from the national leagues in places like Angola, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Tunisia, Algeria, Cameroon, Madagascar, Mali, Mozambique and Rwanda are set to participate.

The news arrives almost a year after Master P claimed that Cole is training to play in the NBA. He revealed that he told Cole that “…this a different time we’re in. They’re going to pick you apart! You’re gonna have to be able to hit every shot and if you don’t hit every shot, they — you know in the NBA, they don’t hit every shot but they believe in them. So, you’re gonna have to go somewhere where the team really believes in you and the players believe in you.”

Aside from his hoop dreams, Cole is set to release his highly-anticipated album The Off-Season on May 14.
