KOD season continues, this time with a new J. Cole interview.
Wednesday, Vulture dropped an extensive Cole chat featuring the Dreamville co-founder’s candid reflections on his “1985” lyrics, Kendrick Lamar’s influence, Lil Peep’s death, and more.
“It’s really a ‘shoe fits’ situation—several people can wear that shoe,” Cole said of KOD closer “1985,” which many have interpreted as taking aim at Smokepurpp, Lil Pump, and others. “Why you yelling at your show? You must feel attacked in some kind of way, must feel offended, and if you feel offended, then that means something rings true, something struck a chord. That’s cool with me. That’s all I ever want to do.”
He added, “If you exclude the top three rappers in the game, the most popping rappers all are exaggerated versions of black stereotypes”.
