J. Cole Vibe Interview "Drake & I, are not in the position to be best friends"
 

 

Posted the better questions the link for the rest of the interview is below...

What were Jay’s words when he first heard the single? (Who Dat)
He liked it a lot, said the beat reminds him of a Biggie's "Hypnotize." I believe him. That’s why they call him Hov [laughs].

Is an August release really what it’s looking like?
I haven’t been given a date, but that’s what it seems like. It could be September, who knows. I just throw that out there because of the way this single is going.

Do you have an album title?
Yeah, but it may change next week so I don’t want to put it out there yet. Fans keep saying, Cole World and The Blow Up, but neither of those are it. Four months ago I was sold on one, but it restricted me a little bit. And I was smart about it because I didn’t go shout out the title as soon as I had it. I know how the game works and people don’t really understand that I have the right to change my mind.


About a month ago, Drake mentioned the possibility of you jumping on a Thank Me Later bonus cut. Fact?
Man, me and Drake have been trying to get something done. Actually, if he reads this, tell him to send the s**t he supposed to send. [Laughs] I understand we both busy and we spoke about doing some s**t, but I guess schedule wise it hasn’t worked out. That would be ill, but as of now it’s not done.

What’s an actual conversation like between you guys? Is it past a ‘What’s good’ and ‘Congrats’?
It’s not that type of relationship yet. Right now, it’s a mutual respect, like I see what you’re doing, you’re k!lling the game, I’m a fan or whatever the case is. We’re both young and even though he’s more established and has hits, he still doesn’t have an album out. He still has to prep for that. So we’re not in the position to be best friends. We can save that for when we’re both laid up and chilling, but right now we both have work to do. There’s not many rappers who I feel I really know. I think Wale is one of the few that I have a real friendship with. Not saying that won’t happen with Drake because you never know, but right now it starts with respect.

No other industry friends you confide in?
Nah man. Even Wale… I don’t want to get that twisted like we have deep conversations about life. I just feel like I know him better than the others. I keep to myself by nature.

What was your reaction to the Nas cosign?
I don’t remain cool when I meet these people, I’m like a little kid. Actually, when I met Nas… this was before he gave me any props on video, probably like a month or two ago, he actually quoted one of my lines from the Kweli song. I was like ‘Man, don’t quote one of my lines. You don’t understand man.’ I was so genuinely appreciative. I f**king used to type Nas lyrics just to put up on my wall.

Going back to your album, you mentioned it being a lot of storytelling, what are some of those tales?
If you could imagine a town called Dreamville, which is really to me, a mixture of my hometown Fayetteville and the city of dreams, New York. So it’s like this fictional town where the story takes place and within this setting there’s all these different aspects of life. Whether it’s the main character’s issues, family issues, relationship issues and then there’s this whole other issue of him trying to accomplish his goals. Prison issues, family members locked up. I see it like a movie.


Is this a concept that runs throughout the entire album?
Yeah, for the most part, but it’s not a literal concept album. It’s kinda like The Warm Up, but a little deeper. A continuation of that concept.

Is the album just about finished?
I could be done tomorrow if they said that’s the deadline. I have too many songs. That’s the problem at this point.

Does too many songs mean we would get a mixtape before the album?
Probably not. I don’t have throwaway joints. So if I put out a mixtape it’s going to be better than somebody’s album. If I’m serving you a meal, I don’t want to give you an appetizer that’s just as filling as the meal. I’d rather give you a banging-ass meal and then possibly come with some good-ass dessert.

So what you’re saying, is you’d like to starve us a bit?
[Laughs] Exactly. And I guarantee people are going to appreciate it, maybe without even knowing it. They’re going to appreciate that I didn’t stuff them and over do it.

I think this pretty much deads the whole "he's taking shots at Drake on Who Dat" image

"So we’re not in the position to be best friends. We can save that for when we’re both laid up and chilling, but right now we both have work to do". He didn't mean anything disrespect. Why does everybody want to see a rap beef between the two?

must want to see some light skinned beef or something

I don't know why people do s**t like this, neither one of these rappers have disrespected each other, so why try to start beef between the two?

well its nice to see that vibe magazine is back to being gossiping a.ss b**ches again. vibe's misquotes were the main reason why the east and west coast beefs popped off in the first place.

Vibe You’ve been on a lot of other people’s tracks, but it’s usually not the reverse. Is that changing for your debut?

Cole:Right now there’s really no big features on my album and I plan on keeping it like that. I kinda like the idea of having an album that’s all me. If I do a feature, I want to do it because I really love it, not because they’re what’s hot now. I want to do a track with Rich Boy, even though his last single to blow was a couple years ago. But I still want to work with him because he has an incredible rap style. I could be like Jeezy’s on fire, let me get him, but that’s not how I operate. If I do a feature it really has to make sense, not that I don’t want to work with Jeezy, because I would love that, but you know [laughs]


rich boy j cole planning a collaboration? i'm boosted..
