J. Cole Talks Drake Collab & Jay Electronica (Video)

blame it on Meka November 15, 2010

While at Heineken’s Inspire concert Cole spoke with Mikey Fresh of VIBE on his first collaboration with Drake on “In The Morning:”

“It was my first time in Paris, and I got a text from Drake. And it was him just telling me he heard ‘In The Morning’ for the first time. My real fans will know that’s it an older song,” J.Cole tells VIBE. “He said it was incredible, and I’ve always wanted to bring that record back to life because the original version I recorded in my bedroom—in my old crib, in my small room.”

Feeling the time was right for two of rap’s most talked about rookies to team up, Cole calmly told Drake that he wanted to revamp the record.

“When he hit me, I was already thinking that over the past few months,” Cole continued. “I told him that I appreciated it, and he was really making me want to bring it back to life. He said, ‘If you do it, make sure you save me 16 on the song.’”

    Ok, cool. Now text each other about getting a mean beat to body. That song for the females is alright and all, but it’s not what everyone wanted.
