J. Cole speaks on getting props from just about everyone in celebration of his latest album.
J. Cole is having quite a week, as the Roc Nation emcee’s Cole World: The Sideline Story not only debuted at No. 1, but also sold over 200,000 units in its first week.
In a brief interview with Angie Martinez, the North Carolina artist spoke about all the praise he’s been showered with.
“Blink-182, man, I told y’all I was comin’ for y’all,” a tired J. Cole said, laughing. “We celebrated last night because it happened to be….my homeboy’s birthday.”
“Got the Jay-Z call,” he continued. “Got the Beyonce congratulaitons email, that was a good look. She the best. She’s the nicest. For real, it’s unbelievable.”
“I actually woke up today from the plane ride with the most text I’d ever had. You know when you turn on your phone and it’s text after text after text? I was the most ever. Ridiculous amount.”
