Hi J. Cole,
I am going to go off on the limb right now and ask you a huge favor.
So I go to St. John's University and I am in dire need of help with my fees for the spring semester. I felt I should ask you because hey, I have nothing to lose; and i also figured you would feel a little more connection seeing that you graduated there.
I am not trying to put too many details up here, but I can get you all the info you might need if you are interested.
Please, please do consider it, you have no idea how much this would help my family out.
