J. Cole hasn’t spent much time working the media circuit this year. And with a smash album like 2014 Forest Hills Drive, he really doesn’t have to. He did chat with Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 last night to talk about the things he wanted to talk about: his very real friendship with Dale Earnhardt, Jr., the burgeoning “new” New York sound and growing as a producer. In the interview, he mentioned his Dreamville artists Baz and Cozz. Cole wants to find a diamond in the rough singer like Aaliyah, and make incredible music the way she did with Timbaland.
Cole also talks about why he remains relatively quiet on Twitter, and does not fall into the likes and retweet game that many of his peers mean success. “I believe in staying away until you got something to say. I don’t believe in the art of just talking to be talking.”
We heard that. Listen to Cole’s chat with Funk Flex below.
