Meet J. Cole & Lupe Fiasco’s Moms

Sure,  Touré managed to catch both J. Cole and Lupe Fiasco at the same time on the Grammy red carpet. But things got exponentially more exciting when both rapper’s dates rolled up. And by “dates,” we mean “moms.”

Jump to the 1:55 mark to hear J. Cole utter the unforgettable words, “Mom, this is Lupe Fiasco.” Toure then asked each lady what it’s like to have your son grow up to become a rapper. Quoth Momma Fiasco: “It’s amazing. That’s all I can say. The stuff that he was writing when he first started at like 12 or 1—I would find his little tablets around and I was like, ‘You can’t say that.’”

But he did. And things seemed to work out pretty OK.
