J. Cole Talks Career, Addictions and Kanye West with Angie Martinez

J. Cole Talks Career, Addictions and Kanye West with Angie Martinez”

He said West apologized for the tweet, and the "False Prophets" singer told him, "It felt like you just used my name in that very quick conversation for, for social media and for like to keep your thing going". "So I'm like, 'Are you sure?' Cause I see this a certain way".

Sitting down for well over an hour of conversation there weren't any topics untouchable for the Dreamville leader as he spoke on pre-show traditions, addiction to social media, resisting the temptations of drinking, the backlash from the "mumble rap" community and more. Why do I keep checking this shit every five minutes? "It just felt like it wasn't honest because of that". "I need that. I feed off that'". "With social media, I was off it so long that I thought I had beat this addiction". I don't like something pulling my strings.

"I feel like he's really good at sampling language that will resonate and it just so happened that this time he sampled the wrong shit", Cole said of West's controversies, specifically his Trump bromance. "I feel like I'm diving into other peoples" business".

"He's an artist", he jokes. "He's an artist. He's fire though.What do you mean he's me? I wanted to make it weird, at least for 10 seconds just to say I did".

J. Cole had the internet ablaze a few weeks ago when he suddenly dropped K.O.D. on an unsuspecting public but it wasn't just his fan base that had some extreme reactions to one of the hottest albums of 2018.

The moniker "J. Cole" felt like a "box" to the rapper after his 2014 album 2014 Forest Hills Drive. It was a box. "Once they hear the stories, like... they never had a space to get it off, so that type of stuff is making it for me, and in those moments, I remember", he said. It wasn't like I was aware.all of this was subconscious. I actually fuck with they music. He says there's "some shit in me" that he doesn't like that relates to his step-dad. Cole sat down with radio personality Angie Martinez for a 94-minute interview in producer Salaam Remi's studio house in Miami this weekend before headlining the Rolling Loud Festival.
