J. Cole Says An Album With Kendrick Lamar Is "Definitely" Going To Happen

J. Cole speaks on a possible project with Kendrick Lamar, hashing things out with Diggy Simmons.

During an appearance on DJ Drama’s radio show on Shade45, rapper J. Cole reassured fans that a project with Kendrick Lamar is likely going to happen. J. Cole revealed that while the project may end up being released for free he plans on approaching it as an album.

“Kendrick, that’s definitely gonna happen. I don’t have a timeline but you know if he lands here at 12:00 tonight, we get in for two days, he’ll fly out, we’ll do that again when we can. He’s working on his album. First we gotta make the music,” said J. Cole. “I would shoot for an album. If we put it out for free then I guess that’s just the day and age we live in, but I’m not making it like a mixtape.”

J. Cole also spoke on his sophomore album and the fact that there’s a lot less pressure and a lot more freedom when it comes to creating this album.

“I have way more freedom. It’s already improved upon because I’m pressure-less,” J. Cole explained. “The label didn’t even expect me to do the numbers I did. You know what I’m saying? So with that type of freedom it’s like I haven’t been in this place creatively since before my record deal, a little after my record deal. Right before the labels started asking me for a single and it started messing up how I make music. I’m back to the place I was before that.”

As far as his relationship with Diggy Simmons is concerned J. Cole explained that he’d be willing to talk it out with the rapper if it ever came down to it.

“I’m not even thinking about it, but if I see him of course,” said J. Cole when asked if he would speak to the rapper. “What am I gonna go beat Diggy up or something? That’s not gonna happen. It’s Diggy Simmons, just remember this. He’s a kid. He’s good, he’s talented, but he’s a kid. I was really surprised when people was making that an issue…That’s not the type of beef you wanna be involved in.”

    Damn, sounds like a really dope idea. It seemed like all eyes were on J Cole and believing he was gonna be the savior of hip hop, then along came Kendrick and BAM! hip hop heads switched over to the Lamar train. Dont get me wrong, Im cool with Section 80 and I have even met Kendrick Lamar, but I just think that Coles songs go alot deeper and they come genuine (minus a few tracks off Cole World). All in all, lets get that collab album. Hii Power was just a taste of what these two are cabable of. Throw on a Big KRIT and a Game feature then you have a classic!

    THEY BE ON THEIR CHRIS ROCK SHIT CUZ ITS TOO DAMN FUNNY. HOW CAN THOSE 2 CLOWNS PUT OUT AN ALBUM..ON ONE SIDE U GOTTA NIGGA WHO DIDNT EVEN PUT AN ALBUM OUT AND ON THE OTHER ONE WE GOT A NIGGA WHO DIDNT EVEN SOLD HALF OF DRIZZYS NUMBER IN A WEEK...DAMN DRIZZY AND WAYNE ARE THE ONLY DUO THAT CAN FUC WITH WATCH THE THRONE

    • fuck yessir

      Kendrick lamar has more talent in his pinky toe then drake and Weezy will ever have in their lives, and i would say more talent than YMCMB but i can't hate on Bustah

    • NONO

      But Drake and Wayne could never sit on the throne...And for the record, this album should be pretty good...And you lames need to stop determining success by comparing artists to other artists. If everybody's doin there thing, stop dick riding.

      your lost dawg. ANYHOW! the album is worth checking off the strength of kendrick. i think he might push cole to be as good and on top of his rhyming that he needs to be to pull off a dope (dare i say even classic) collaborative hip hop album

    im startin to like Kendrick Lamar alot more but i think its cause of his choice of content on tracks. at first some of his shit was like a big runon sentence but i love some of the shit he's featured on like catch a fade, the city, etc. I like Slim the mobster too!!

    Cole don't want none of that knuckle game. Diggy would slap the shit outta his knees.

    remember when everyone was checking for J. Cole?? who is checking for him now?? I do think he will have a more successful career as a beat maker than as a rapper.

    • ETK

      that's because his album went gold.. he made a lot of girl songs, and you niggas turned on him faster than Kendrick Lamar's flow cause God knows y'all weren't checkin that, that's why J.Cole is smart, cause 3/4 of you niggas won't even buy albums... now J.Cole and Lamar togehter are gonna spit about shit that matters, and y'all are gonna jump on his dick again soon, or just spout about how Lamar > Cole, whichever makes the nigga relevant

      I didn't lose interest but it isn't like it was. I clearly remember all the hype before Cole World dropped. The comments on here alone would lead you to believe he is the next coming of the god MC. Anyone still looking at him like that?? I don't think so. I mean he is nice with the flow, but his songs are just okay. I hope to see some growth with his next album, but I think he is a way nicer beatmaker than rhymer. That's why someone like Kendrick would consider getting in a studio with him and make a whole album.

    • Jake

      Another crab ass nigga.

    • donny

      just cause you lost interest doesn't mean he lost his real fans..
