On Thursday, a picture of J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar in the lab working hit the net. Now Cole confirms that the album with the Compton rapper is definitely going to happen. During the interview, J.Cole also speaks on beginning to record his sophomore album.
During a recent interview on DJ Drama’s show on Shade 45, J. Cole speaks on the joint album with K.Dot, as he says:
“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.”
The Roc Nation rapper added:
“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.”
As the interview continued, J.Cole touched on his sophomore album:
“I have way more freedom. It’s already improved upon because I’m pressure-less. 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.”
