So, About That J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar Project...

Finally, an update.

Published August 17th

A J. Cole/Kendrick Lamar collaborative project has been rumored to either be in the works or already completed since the two worked together on K Dot’s Section 80 album.

We’ve had hints, denials and even lyrics about the possibility of the two superstars finally putting out a full work of art on wax. There’s even rumored cover art for it. Well, now we have our most recent update from someone who might know a little something about at least one of the two rappers.

If you remember, back in February, Lamar and Cole both hopped on each other’s “Black Friday” remixes and hinted that something big between them was coming very soon. Very soon came and went, though, and everyone traveled back to square one. Dreamville President Ibrahim Hamad was recently a guest on the Rap Radar podcast and was asked by B Dot about the project’s current status now that it’s in limbo.

“You know what? I will say that even when he said that, you know like, we kinda knew that was a stretch,” he explained. “Cole is Cole and he knows what he’s doing. He has his ways of getting things done and I think that at the end of it all, it’ll be way worth it. Whatever he had planned in February, whatever it is, it’ll be way more worth it if people just like, know that he, he’s kinda like a mad scientist with his thing. He’s like a little mad scientist.”

Sounds like that’s neither confirmation nor denial about whether something eventually will surface between the two. Oh well.
