J. Cole says Kendrick Lamar joint album didn’t happen

J. Cole has been trending over the past 24 hours, due to his appearance on Lil Yachty’s A Safe Place podcast. One of the topics on this episode include Cole revealing that he doesn’t charge artists for his featured verses, and denied a rumor that he charges $2,000 for every word that he raps in a verse.

Moreover, Cole also spoke on the rumored joint album with Kendrick Lamar, that was rumored to be released in the 2010s. Cole added that he met Kendrick before Kendrick soared to stardom, and that the joint album was almost in the works. However, they ended up not being able to get to recording an album’s worth of content.

“In a nutshell, [Kendrick Lamar] had pulled up on me at No I.D.’s spot. We was already building this relationship, and I had these beats at the time and I was playing them for him. Was that our first time linking? ‘HiiiPoWeR,’ one of them beats? There’s a few beats, a gang of beats that I did, I gave him. Some of them like, maybe had a hook on them, a verse- this, that, and the third.”

“So he took them and, you know, in that moment, we talked about, ‘Yo, bro, we should do a project. At that time he’s not on like that, but I’m f***in’ with him. At one point, it was a real thing. But bro, time and life, we ain’t ever got the chance to go in and do it correctly, because that would take time. For us to do something that’s full of our potential, that meets our real potential, you’re gonna need. At least a year.”

Meanwhile, Cole has been on an impressive feature run, in 2023. These have included appearing on J-Hope’s “On The Street,” Gucci Mane’s “There I Go,” and also Lil Durk’s “All My Life.”
