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.”
