"It started to feel like J. Cole, which sounds weird even saying that in conversation.that name started feeling like a box".
After breaking the record for Spotify's single day streaming on an opening day, it seems like Drake knew that J. Cole's latest offering upped the ante in the rap game and texted him a quick message that said a lot. Cole had plenty to say when he sat down with Angie Martinez for a 90-minute interview.
Nearly as anticipated as album releases these days are the supporting sit-down interviews that give insight into the artist's creative process and recent life happenings. He also states that he already began working on the project,"Ive been working on it for a year and a half". "I told him that", Cole said. After experimenting with his production and voice in his later music, he discovered a different style thought to be idiosyncratic of a different character he would come to play in KOD. "That made me feel a certain type of way. It's not like I drive around listening to it, but I've spent time listening and being like 'Yo, this is fun'". "He's an artist. He's fire though.What do you mean he's me?" "But when I say 'kiLL Edward, ' what I'm talking about is like the shit that I feel like I inherited from him". "It's not that I wouldn't want to work with him, that's not the case", he said. I go in there just to see what it is in person. J. Cole and Lamar have worked on "ideas" together earlier on in their careers, but would not call it an album. "I feel like I'm diving into other peoples" business", added Cole.
"With social media, I was off it so long that I thought I had beat this addiction." he explained. I'm just like a dude that was a fan back in the day, and when I'm writing 'False Prophets, ' which that song wasn't about him.
The K.O.D. emcee added that Yeezy did apologize, though, as Cole expressed that he felt the GOOD Music leader used his name and their brief conversation exclusively for social media and to "keep [his] thing going, whatever [he was] doing", Cole said. "I actually on the phone was concerned for him".
