During a concert in Las Vegas on Friday night, J Cole took time out to speak about health, drugs, and the recent passing of rap contemporary Mac Miller, Pitchfork points out.


“As you grow up, you go through some traumatic shit,” Cole said before performing Love Yourz. “You leave it alone and you ignore it, and before you know it, you’re 20 fucking years old and you’re walking around with all this shit that’s accumulated.”

The KOD rapper continued on, saying “Every day, Vegas, people die.... And they never got a chance to deal with their shit. I’m not trying to wait till I die to deal with my shit. I’m trying to deal with my shit right fuckin’ now.”

Cole's concert speech comes after the Carolina native tweeted a heartfelt message saying, "This is a message for anybody in this game that’s going through something. If you don’t feel right, if you feel you have a substance problem, if you need a ear to vent to. If you uncomfortable talking to people around you. Please reach out to me."
