J Cole’s “The Man in the Moon” is one of his most celebrated songs.
He was awarded the Grammy for best rap album in 2013, but the song’s success has been marred by allegations of drug use, and a police investigation has led to his arrest in the US.
The album was reportedly produced in New York, and was recorded in an office space in Brooklyn in 2009.
The song is a homage to a man known as “The Black Man in New Jersey” who was arrested in 1979 on a drug charge, and released two years later.
It is the story of a black man trying to make it in the black community, and how he became an activist.
