AllHipHop Staff

J. Cole is the latest artist to step up to the plate as part of Colin Kaepernick's million dollar challenge.

(AllHipHop News) J. Cole can add his name to the list of artists who have given to Colin Kaepernick's $1 million pledge to charity.

J. Cole chose to take Kaepernick up on the challenge and donated $10,000 to a Baltimore-based grassroots organization called Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle.

The nonprofit's founder could not believe the news until he received an Instagram message from Colin Kaepernick himself, as well as a phone call from the NFL star's manager.

“I completely freaked out. I was like ‘what?!’,” said Adam Jackson, CEO, and co-founder of Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle.

"I thought this was a prank call or someone messing with me," Jackson continued.

The gift was real, and J. Cole's funds will be used to support Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle's mission to make a difference in politics, through education and Community organization.
