J. Cole supported Kaepernick’s national anthem protest and recently the former NFL player donated to Cole’s Dreamville Foundation.

According to XXL, his organization helps provide opportunities for urban youth.

The money will help many projects Cole’s organization is working on and with that donation has brought his monetary donations close to $800,000.

Cole during a recent concert in Baltimore spoke out about what’s happening with Kaepernick and said, “Matter of fact, don’t y’all think that someone that got money, power and fame should be standing up for them type of shits? Baltimore, the shit that’s happening here, don’t you think that somebody should risk their whole livelihood and their whole life to talk about this shit?”

As well as, “Even if it cost them their money, their job, their life? Don’t that sound like Colin Kaepernick? Don’t that sound like what he doing? And he trying to come to Baltimore, the city that seems to need that shit for real.”
