J. Cole Touches On Fans' Perceived Drake Rivalry

Exclusive: J. Cole says that the fans are the ones who are feeding into a non-existent rivalry between him and Drake

Recently, the media has drawn their attention  to Roc Nation's first signed artist J. Cole and Young Money's Drake. Both are young in the Rap game; however, they have both established a very large fan base in a short period of time. The success of their mixtapes has led to their highly anticipated debut albums.

Given their successes, it was no surprise that when Drake recently compared J. Cole to Nas, it had the media and fans buzzing. J. Cole sat down with HipHopDX at the University of Maryland campus, where we got the Roc Nation artist's opinion on whether he felt the media was trying to push a beef between the two.

"I do, but it’s not working, they don’t understand that it’s not working. I know Drake, we speak or whatever the case is, so that’s not even an issue." Cole dismissed. "It doesn’t really come from the publications, it comes from the people. Like the fans are so eager to see some shit like that, they live for shit like that, which is cool, I understand where it’s coming from. You can’t just make up a beef man, that’s just not how this thing works."

  • red21

    its great to see that these two dont have anything against each other although they both have disses that might be directed to each other. this is kinda sad, this might actually turn out to be like the biggie and pac story if ppl stupid enough try to turn it into that.

  • Fee Bang Em'

    j.cole better than tha new drake.old drake,not so sure.

  • pen

    only in hip hop do fans want two upcoming star to battle and beef for no reason....fans fuck up hip hop

    • Krunk

      True. Fans can blow some shit out of proportion sometimes BUT can you honestly say that competitive bars from these two Great artists going at each other wouldnt be the shit? Im not saying they gotta hate each other but a honest rivalry would do hip hop some good I think.

    it's a secret society, all we ask is trust.. he's speaking to all of us.. and everyone you know has a secret society.. let me repeat, everyone you know has a secret core group of people in which they trust the most delicate of things with.. so all the illuminati talk is garbage.. and jay poked fun at ya'll tool bags with his video.. the artistic expression in the video is amazing.. yet the haters hate harder and speak of things inwhich they do not understand.. not like that is a first, i'm just saying.. this rhetoric of satan worshiping is catching on with teenagers and they are talking about it far too much.. which only gives more power to the idea.. yet they still jam jay's music in their ipod and play it for their guests.. its sociology at it's finest.. and marketing jay won't turn down, the registers are still ringing.. and to think he just released young forever in the states.. released it in the UK months ago.. and a new wave of folks have jay-z's name in their mouth.. his genius is so evident, yet the crowd remains unwise.. hold tight to the illuminati trash talk, and hold tight the fabric of your beliefs no matter how much evidence there is to refute your watered down version of life itself.. i wouldn't want to take that from you, for your fear may become so great that you begin attacking your loved ones.. and then who would be considered demonic?

    that shit would be gud to c. they both nice with the word play. hiphop 4ever!!!!!!!

  • MOSEY

    I've seen a guy comparing Drake to LL Cool Gay, and i couldn't stop co-signing. It's a universal fact that a guy that names his son 'Aubrey' is cleary not aware of how homosexually inclined that name is. Drake has a few punchlines and Kat Stacks has probably gnawed on his penis, that's as far as his credibility goes. I don't hate him as much as I should, but since he's upper middle class material, why is he claining to he hard on that 'OVER' song?SMD (no hoe mo)

    • Potato w/ Jive

      So rap is only genuine if you are from the hood and get shot 9 times? Man, get out of your own damn mental prison, fam. If you REALLY look at it...how gangsta is it REALLY to put little words together and make them rhyme? Mother goose did that. Dr Seuss did that. Are THEY gangsta? Calling people gay and claiming hip hop isn't real because it isn't hood is tired, fam. Wake up to real life. Smile. It might improve your attitude.

  • NEW SCHOOL RAPPERS JUST SUCK

    JAY ELEC, J.COLE, DRAKE, LIL WAYNE, LUPE, BOB, WIZ, CURRENCEY OR WHOEVER THE FUCK IS AROUND NOW ARE KILLING RAPS VIBE...NOT FEELING RAP NOWADAYS, IT IS JUST TOTAL BULLSHIT!

    • Bob36

      How come you don't feel guys like J. Cole, Jay Elec and Lupe. WTF

    • filnobep

      you say all those people's names but about only 3 of them are new. of course lil wayne has been out since bling bling, duh. wizkhalifa been out say yeah came out like 3 years ago, lupe goin on his 3rd album, currensy was wit no limit 504 boyz, if any thing rap been sucked and you just now realizing but only question is what you doin about it?

    • jpilk293

      troll is a troll

    • H2

      ^^Co-Sign -- Sorry my dude, but u don't know what the f*ck your talking about. Jay Elec is one of the few people keepin it real & B.O.B is waaaaay to original and talented to be thrown in that box...can't speak for the rest, but like homie said - if you would've put Gucci or Waka Flocka on that list, I might have been able to agree, but nah...

    • rawbiz

      Have you heard a Jay Elec song? Have you seen BOB perform live? How up on Currene$y are you? Lupe what!?? You probably miss Candyman and JJ Fad. You aren't feeling rap? You must not be familiar with hip-hop music then. I could understand if you mentioned Gucci mane and that sort, but the names you dropped make you sound foolish.

  • jawzinthisbitch

    After reading the comments, I'm convinced that it's herbs like yall that's killing hip hop... Go suck a dick, how could you even say thatJay Electronica and Drake are wack? Do you cat's even have ears?

    • dopenesspersonified

      I think if you have ears you can say Drake is wack, how can you listen to Jay Electronica and listen to Drake and not know dude is wack? Shits mind blowing

    he should beef with drake, and stop being a pussy. what happened to good old competition, this is rap. i hate the new collaboratory/ cosign trend of today's mainstream popular rap. these dudes battlin for the top spot in a downed hip hop economy. fuck the bullshit, what did their balls drop off? did everybodys? what yall think?

    • H2

      ^^ COSIGN HHFAN!! ^^

    • truthiness

      haha i dont like fake beef, but real rivalry has always been a part of rap. If there is no rivalry here then fuck it, but J. cole would lyrically BITCHSLAP Drake

    • HHFAN

      Yeah, I totally agree! What a GREAT WAY to get hip hop started again. We need more beefs like Game and 50 that go on for YEARS to the point fans aren't listening anymore. We need more no names and washed up rappers to mention Jay-Z's name on a track to get a little attention but no record sales. Hip Hop really needs Joe Budden to get another Black Eye from the Wu. Get the fuck outta here with that shit dog. What hip hop needs is to get back to making QUALITY MUSIC and kill this synth pop bullshit it's been riding on for the last 10 years. There's a couple new school cats keeping it up (Lupe, B.o.b., Jay Electronica) and some vets whos most commercial & uninspired albums (Blue Print 3, Relapse, Paper Trail) that sh*t on these new rappers. When was the last time you heard a really good hip hop song. I mean REALLY good? Most of these cats don't put any effort into what they're writing nowadays. Rappers lack creativity. The fans are also a problem. If you tell a Drake fan that he only raps about money, cars, clothes, and ho's, they tell you he's keeping it real because that's all he knows. Really? There's nothing more going on in your world or the world as a whole in general that you can rap about. I'm sure the Beatles had plenty of money but they kept pushing the creative boundries of their music. You telling me, you get successful, that's all there is to talk about? NY fell the fuck off, the South is wack for the most part, and the West can't get their shit together. Hip Hop needs to really get it's ass in gear because the art form is on life support.

    • Chubby

      Good comments however Drake is not the wrost thing to ever hold a mic if you would have said the whole brick sqaud then i would agree. The future is coming J. Cole, Wale Jay Electronica, Curren$y, Wiz, and B.O.B if he stick with one persona hold the future. We can only blame the music industry for the death of hiphop. As Ghostface Khilla said FUCK THE WHOLE INDUSTRY, Tryin to get rid of me

    am sick of people comparing drake and j cole they are completely diffrent j cole is a rapper but drake ha he aint no rapper he makes songs for the women. WHO IS BETTER? lets be honest hip hop has had its better days and if u were to choose j cole or drake to save hip hop who would it be? thats what i thought J COLE!! J COLE IS BETTER!!!!

  • YoungZ412

    J.Cole is the future and Drake is jsut hot right now but pretty soon everybody with a good sense of hip-hip/rap music will see that Drake is just not as talented as J.cole and will never be like him. J.Cole is here to stay. WHO DAT WHO DAT... BITTCH J.COLE GOT THAT FLAME!!!!!!!!

  • ocmastermind

    @ C-ARSON you said it man.. drake is just to draw in the females attention and even if drake were to diss cole, how we he come on that track. by singing to him ? lol..

  • dmoney32

    Co-sign on J. Cole being better than Drake. I look at it like this. Look at the heads of their camps....Wayne with Young $ and Hov with Roc Nation. Wayne is dope on the punchlines/metaphors, like Drake, but Hov is a better overall emcee, like J.Cole. Drake cannot and will not be able to tell a story like J. Cole can (i.e. Dreams) and the same goes for Wayne never telling a story like Hov can. I think Hov said it best on "Toruble" last verse Hov > Wayne J.Cole > Drake The stars are aligned correctly

  • Bob36

    Drake is good but J. Cole is simply better that's all.

  • C-ARSON

    Also I think Fans kind of create a beef because J. Cole is so ridiculously better in the lyric department and Drake has all this hype.

  • A Common Fiasco

    @Dj Lexx People hate Drake because people like you throw around the word "genius" wantonly. Is he a decent rapper? Sure, I'd even say he's in the 51-60% percentile, but GENIUS? Come on, son.

  • C-ARSON

    I still don't understand what the big deal is with Drake? Except for he sings and Girls like him. If you think Drake is better than J. Cole your out of fucking mind. Drake maybe be more appealing than Cole but tell me what Drake has done anywhere as dope as Grown Simba. Just Sayin.

    • wu head

      hell yeah i forgot that 1 , turn off the lights , dreams, dude is ill .that warm up mixtape is a classic, j cole n joell ortiz is keepin the heart beating

    I think they are both dope. Drake is catching a lot of heat lately though. A beef might not be the worst thing for him right now. There's no one beefs anymore besides 50 and (insert rapper).

  • tai money

    i think drake is a hard core rapper in this industry. and it don' matter what any of ya'll say he gone be here for a long time

  • ocmastermind

    drake is wack ... he is border line hip hop and R&B

    • miguel Guttierres

      Ah, damn. I misquoted you, but yeah, I stand by my points still.

    • miguel Guttierres

      @ DJ Lexx: Respect your opinion but let me touch on a few points. "instead of him being a rapper who is going to put on autotune to sing... DUDE can rap and sing" Okay, so lots of other rappers can sing as well. Not going to say Lauryn Hill because we all know she can do that. But male rappers/singers who don't use autotune include Cee-Lo, Chamillionaire, Pimp C, Andre 3000, Mos Def, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Buckshot, Pharrell and more recently, Kid Cudi and B.o.B. So he's not the only one who can rap and sing without autotune. "he can write a full song by himself without a feature... GENIUS..." Genius? Sure, if thousands of other artists didn't write their own full songs without features before Drake even started. "Dude is going to have longevity not only based on his own work but all the features he will continue to do because of his TALENT." How do you know he will have longevity? How do you people won't get tired of him in the future? If you continue to get exposed to too much of one thing, then naturally, you will move on to something else. The only way he'll have longevity is if he lets his career breathe once in a while and bounce right back. And no, I'm not a Drake hater. He's actually alright but he's nothing special, mainly due to the reasons listed above.

    • Dj Lexx

      He is border line hip hop and r&b..... hmmmm so that makes him wack? Thats called talent bra... instead of him being a rapper who is going to put on autotune to sing... DUDE can actually sing... Also instead of having to go get somebody to do your hooks, he can do his OWN hooks... So wait... he can write a full song by himself without a feature... GENIUS... its called power... Drake's power allows him to be extremely marketable. He is talented so he can put out a full length album that will sell because dude appeals to the bitches and the average consumer and because he knows how to make hits aswell he will be able to sell ringtones and move singles. Dude is going to have longevity not only based on his own work but all the features he will continue to do because of his TALENT. Full time now people quit the Drake hate because it doesnt even make sense...

    • imhungry

      lol yeah i'd put him next to T.I. cause they both suck ass

    • tai money

      i respect your comment but he's a good rapper he next to t.i and jay-z

  • really?

    then do a damn song together!!!! that would be freakin sick!!!! make that collab happen
