How tall is J. Cole? J. Cole is 6 feet, 3 inches tall, according to most websites, and that makes this rapper and producer above average in more ways than one. He’s taller than the typical American male, who stands about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, and in terms of talent, he’s head and shoulders above the competition. J. Cole arrived on the scene in 2007, when he dropped a mixtape called “The Come Up.” That collection caught the ear of Jay Z, who signed the young rhymer to his Roc Nation label. Just like that, J. Cole was on his way, and in 2011, he dropped his debut album, “Cole World: The Sideline Story.” The LP topped the Billboard 200, and so did its follow-up, 2013’s “Born Sinner.” Not bad for a kid born in Frankfurt, West Germany.
Cole was born in West Germany because his father was in the U.S. army, and while Cole’s 6-foot, 3-inch frame probably would have made him a good soldier, this was not a guy destined for combat fatigues. Cole began rapping when he was 12 years old, and as a teenager, he formed his first group. He also kept up with his schoolwork, and after graduating from high school, he attended St. John’s University in New York City on an academic scholarship. He studied communications and graduated magna cum laude, giving himself some useful fallback knowledge he luckily hasn’t had to fall back on.
How tall is J. Cole compared to other rappers? At 6 feet, 3 inches tall, he’s got an inch on Jay Z, who stands 6 feet, 2 inches, and he boasts even more of a size advantage over Eminem and Kanye West, both of whom stand 5 feet, 8 inches tall. J. Cole positively towers over Lil Wayne, who checks in at a mere 5 feet, 6 inches, but if he ever plays hoops with Snoop Dogg and 2 Chainz, he might be have trouble grabbing rebounds. Snoop stands 6 feet, 4 inches, while 2 Chainz is 6 feet, 5 inches.
