Last night, Drake AND Jay Z were surprise guests for the last stop of J. Cole’s Forest Hills Tour. One video that’s sweeping the web today is a high quality capture of Drake’s cameo that featured “Know Yourself”, a small new set of bars spit a capella, and “Back 2 Back”. Diggin’ the energy and some of the creative, and personal lines telling more about what Drizzy is going through. I can’t relate, but dang, can only imagine, haha: “Paternity tests are from women I never slept with. I’m legally obligated if they request it.”
I mentioned Jay Z… just photos but here’s him on stage with both Cole and Big Sean.
And ICYMI: Here’s Drizzy performing at the 1st annual Lil Weezyana Fest in N’awlins on Friday night. The one where TIDAL had to blackout Drake’s performance because Apple Music would have sued.
Jay Electronica is the God of Hip-Hop. You might be the 6 God, but I am the God.
I’m sorry but J. Cole ain’t got bars like this. I’m sorry, whoever your favorite rapper is, they all know that I’m the God.
Jay Elect went off at a live show in London last night and Drake and J. Cole were in his crosshairs. Will this set off a response from either? Video below.
Confirmed by the BBHMM producer himself, Deputy, in the new interview with Rap-Up below. The song sounds like it will be for Rihanna’s upcoming album and should be another successful pop/rap crossover with J. Cole involved.
Before that though, the BBHMM video… dropping Tuesday, says Ri-Ri, viewer discretion advised. *big eyes emoji*
J. Cole is coming to a city near you and he’s performing Friday Night Lights.
Today, he announced Dollar and a Dream III and got some help from Drake and Kendrick Lamar for the announcement vlog above. Below is the tour dates (so far).
J. Cole’s clever “first-time” song, naturally, gets a clever new video. It’s puppy love in fact for this storytelling standout off 2014 Forest Hills Drive. If the song gave you that ‘whoa!’ feeling by the end, perhaps you’ll think about it even differently now? I dunno, this one didn’t impact me like many late last year, but at least dog lovers should enjoy the visual.
*awaits “J. Cole is soft!” reaction*
A highlight of BET’s #BlackGirlsRock show was Faith Evans and her performance/cover of J. Cole’s moving “Be Free” single. ICYMI watch the stirring rendition above that garnered the approval of Cole himself.
