Keyshia Cole’s 3 Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

In 2022, she’s still relevant and hasn’t lost a step in terms of her raw talent. Today we’re going to take a closer look at the life and career achievements of one of R&B’s finest while also giving honorable mention to her three siblings, who have carved out careers of their own.

Sean Cole is the only brother of the Cole siblings and the son of Yvonne Cole and Leon Cole. 

Better known by his stage name, Nutt-So, he began his rap career in a group called the Street Thugs with names recognizable to true hip-hop heads – Pound and Mo-Savage. 

Their partnership didn’t last long, and they only produced one album titled Not To Be Fucked With (1994) via Snake Pit Records. After disbanding, better things were to come for the up-and-coming rapper looking to prove himself. 

In 1996, he partnered with the rapper Paris to work on his debut album, but for reasons unknown, it never saw the light of day. Despite the false start, Sean Cole got the nod of approval from arguably the greatest rapper of all time, Tupac Shakur. 

For any young rapper, an acknowledgment from a living legend meant much more than any platinum-selling record. Now signed to Death Row Records (label owned by Suge Knight), he recorded a song for MC Hammer and nearly ten songs with Shakur, who made him an official member of his hip-hop collective – Outlawz.

Keyshia Cole began her journey at 12-years-old after meeting MC Hammer, who encouraged her to pursue a career in the industry. By 15, she was rubbing shoulders with none other than Tupac. 

Her debut album, The Way It Is, was home to singles like “I Changed My Mind,” “Never,” and most notably, “I Should Have Cheated.”

With that album producing over 1.6 million copies sold and outlasting other artists on the chart for over a year, it took just 17 weeks to go gold. 

Her first big success wasn’t a case of beginner’s luck. Her second album, Just Like You, went No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and earned a nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album at the 50th Grammy Awards, barely edging out her debut album with a jaw-dropping 1.7 million copies sold in the U.S. 

Fast forward to 2019, and Cole was featured on a single titled “All Me” by Kehlani, reminding new fans of R&B of her musical prowess.

As a television personality, she launched her talk show, One on One with Keyshia Cole, which airs on the Fox Soul Network.

Keyshia Cole married former NBA player Daniel Gibson on May 21, 2011. A year earlier, they welcomed a son named Daniel Gibson Jr. The whole event was captured on one of her three reality television shows, Keyshia and Daniel: Family First.
