National Rapper J. Cole from Fayetteville is disappointed that someone would vandalize his childhood home.

The vandalism read:  “J.Cole…Do you even care about the ville?”  The photo posted to Facebook surfaced over the weekend but by Monday morning, the black spray paint had been painted over. Many were arguing the rappers involvement in his hometown.

BUT the irony in this is that the home that was vandalized was being turned into a rent-free home for single mothers and their families.

Because if his broken home growing up the rapper says to New York’s Combat Jack internet radio show, “My goal is to have that be a haven for a family.”  So every two years, a new family will come in and live rent-free. The idea is that it’s a single mother with multiple kids. I want her kids to feel how I felt when we got the house.

J.Cole, 30,  is a native of Fayetteville and was born into a military family.
