As previously reported, the rapper and his long-term girlfriend are engaged and are trying their darndest to keep their big day (and relationship for that matter) UBER quiet.
The couple met in 2003 at St. John University. J.Cole reportedly popped the question in 2013. The North Carolina native rarely discusses his relationship, but in a rare interview with HipHopCanada.com, he did discuss love and marriage:
I feel like relationships are a beautiful thing, period. Relationships can be really beautiful, they can be really hard, they can be really rewarding, or they can be bad relationships where it’s really detrimental and hurtful, but that’s life, period.
But then marriage, marriage is just a relationship to me. In my experience, when you’ve been in a relationship for as long as I’ve been in one, there’s no real difference. It’s just a piece of paper that validates what was already real. In marriage you got to go through the same struggles as a relationship, that’s if the relationship is real, because there’s a lot of non-real relationships going on in the world right now.
And I think that’s just because of the day and age we’re in, a lot of these relationships are taking place over text messages, it’s not real substance. But when you got a real one, it’s already like a marriage.
No word on their exact wedding date, but we’ll keep you posted.
