J. Cole Sits Down With Letsjusteatcheese.com


My homie J.Cole just sat down with the illustrious Elle for an interview on his journey in Hip Hop. Here’s an excerpt:

Biggest challenges with rap.

My favorite rappers rap about shit that I could never rap about. It’s all art and entertainment at the end of the day and you choose your persona but there is something in me that won’t let me choose something that doesn’t socially reflect who I am. Tupac, Nas, and Jay-Z, rap about a lot of street shit that I know about from my experiences. I’m challenged to find the most creative ways to still reel people in with different stories that they can relate to. It’s also an opportunity because it’s a lane that has never been done. Every now and then I do want to kill someone on my song, for fun. Just to see what it will be like. Sometimes you want to play different roles because you know you can.

Bonus: Cole blessed me with some classico track from the vault after the jump. He really did it cause he wont let me leak the new joints. LOL

Little J.Cole fact: For a long time his rap name was Therapist .
