Buck the System: J. Cole for GQ

Cole spent a few days with GQ to talk about where he’s at in the game today.

“I’ve reached a point in my life,” he tells me, “where I’m like, ‘How long am I gonna be doing this for?’ I’m starting to realize like, oh shit—let’s say I stopped this year. I would feel like I missed out on certain experiences, you know? Working with certain artists, being more collaborative, making more friends out of peers, making certain memories that I feel like if I don’t, I’m gonna regret it one day.”

J. Cole for Billboard Magazine

Summers over and to wrap it up Cole chopped it up with Billboard magazine.

That crowd earlier today — they love you. It’s worship, but rooted in love.
I spend too much time focusing on the negatives of it, and it makes me resistant to embrace it. I consider love [to be] respect, acknowledgment of skill and talent. That was always the rush I got from rapping. Of course, there was a money aspect to it. I want to take care of my mom and my family. The part that I never considered was being famous. I overlooked the shit that would come with [success]. Now I’m like, “Fuck, I can’t.”

Bas and J. Cole Celebrate Good Fortune In 'Tribe'

Though understated, there’s a special kind of lightning that strikes when J. Cole and Bas get on a track together. The Dreamville members (Bas was signed to J. Cole’s label in 2014) have a knack for playing off each other from one verse to the next in a way that sounds like old friends catching up over drinks on a porch sill. With past singles like 2013’s “New York Times” and 2016’s “Night Job” under their belts, the pair add another track to their collaborative catalog with “Tribe.”
