Video: J. Cole Talks “A Star A Born”

Be sure to read the complete feature @ MTV:

When the two MCs collaborated on that track, it was actually the first time Cole, 24, was in the studio with the celebrated superstar and his boss. He got the call that Hov was interested in him rhyming on the track, but Cole mistakenly thought Jay found a track for him; it wasn’t until a few days before that it was cleared up. By the time he got to the studio, knowing what he was heading there for, he had a few jitters about working with Jay, and then he looked up to see Beyoncé there. Talk about freshman hazing.

“[Jay-Z] was on the couch at first, right there,” Cole told Mixtape Daily about the experience. “It was the first time I was in the studio with Jay. And Beyoncé was there, to make it 10 times worse. Half my thoughts are trying to think of a verse, and then Jay-Z is there watching you write a verse. So I’m soaking it up.”

Recently, Cole has been in the studio with No ID, but he hopes to produce the majority of the album himself, he said. He just started working on his debut last week, making the transition from just hitting the studio to going there with a new purpose. He knows there’s a lot of expectations riding on the project, particularly because a lot of people will be scrutinizing him more due to the Jay-Z co-sign.

But if that’s the first impression people have, he’s fine with it — so long as the second impression he makes is that he was worthy of the deal. “I just want people to comment the talent, if that’s the second thing they comment on, then say, ‘Oh, the crazy-ass rapper that produces he own sh–,’ ” Cole said. “Until that overtakes the first thing, being, ‘Oh, is that the kid Jay-Z signed?’ I got to accept that until I change it.”

    walked to the store to get a sandwich, and as i’m walking I hear see lil kids playing in the street, but it sounded like some guys talking bout jumping me, next thing I knew something in my head said “run really fast” and I just took off, running thru traffic, knocking peolple over, stumbling, everything

    We are really high, really high tonight. :)

    Mine may not be as funny as Joe’s but w.e

    So, it was a regular day in 06′, my man picked me up and we went to his crib to puff before we went to pick some shit up from the mall. I was always the type to OD with Bud, like i never wanted to smoke skinny blunts. So we rolled a fuckin’ bam bam bat and hopped in the whip, light up the L and proceeded to the mall.

    I remember being earthed, like that high that makes you feel like you’ve smacked into a mac truck. Like i was so lit that i just wanted to take a nap in the car while this niggas went into the mall and got his shit. So we end up going in and i was fine, earthed, but fine.

    So all of a sudden, i couldn’t feel my 2 front teeth, like i have a small gap and that gap felt like it was 8 inches wide. so i started to bug out a little in my head like ok why cant i feel my 2 fronts…then i started hearing everything mad weird, i was scrutinizing everything in crazy detail….then i remember telling my man, yo we have to get outta here now…like right now….then the gum i was chewing felt like it turned into mush in my mouth and it started to taste like shit…i was really bugging right now…

    So when he finally realizes that I’m no joing we walk out the mall….i sit on a side bench and start rocking back and fourth like a psych-ward patient, just mumbling shit, mad scared….i tell him to go get me a water bottle….when that nigga came back i was on the ground, on my knees, with my shirt off, praying out loud….this nigga started laughing….

    I got up and ran to the car….so on the way back to my house, he’s now starting to freak out because it was his bud and he maybe think something might happen to me…so while in the car ride, im like yo i feel like something is about to happen, repeating “i dunno yo, i dunno yo”….being mad melodramatic…i felt like something was building up inside of me (nh) and like i was gonna die b, for real i thought this….

    So he drops me off at the crib, and the second i get out his car, i BOLT (pun), straight across the street and donw the block, this nigga starts circling the block looking for me…now paranoia kicks in to high gear and i think everyone is looking at me and trying to get me…now I’m ducking under cars, rolling from one car to the next…say “Shhhh” to nobody….he eventually leaves…..i call my sister to pick me up ( i didn’t wanna be alone)and i told her what had happen.. .

    By the time she came, i was drying off my tears…the whole car ride to her house, I’m coming up with all these self diagnoses and why the weed hit me like that and shit….someone i came up with, that what if i had “HIV” and never knew it and the weed had this effect on me because of it…by the time we pull up to her crib, shes all teary eyed, thinking i might have the monster….

    I went upstairs and fell out after a few hours…yo i swear to god, i was physically sick for a few weeks…i couldn’t eat…major head aches…the works….

    Dear J Cole
    please do NOT produce most of your album yourself. you’re good but don’t mistake being good with album quality. Work with people who can help you produce your vision but have more knowledge on creating records. this will ensure your album doesn’t sound like your mixtape….the one with you on the front with that duck ass jump shot.
    Sincerely, fan

I stayed clear off it until I was maybe 2/22.. My older cousin and his girl convinced me to take a puff.. I was homeless, felony case pending for driving an unregistered vehicle with no insurance, fake temp tags, all kinds of shit(I was not yet a legal resident)… I was like fuck it.. 10 puffs later my cousin and his girl leave the apt. to go to the laundry room(to fuck or w/e)… It felt like they were gone for 8years, sitting all squished in the living room corner, real close to the couch biting my lips like oh shit, this is the end of me.. I’m seeing all kinds of creatures in the wild patrolling the front stoop… then the backdoor opens, real slow.. i’m seeing a white wolf walking on its hind legs.. sizing me up[ll].. i’m screaming like a bitch and next thing I know, my cousin is shaking the shit out of me like chill nigga!

    nowadays, anytime a song is made by young black males, with a spoken rhyme or 2 on it, the industry and others, label it as hiphop …

    that wasnt the original intent of the art form … and the changes and evolution of the art form , wasnt the work of the rightful originators…

  72. The Shot Clock aka We talkin bout dogs...not a game, not a game. dogs. Says:

    IMO, that aint even hiphop … its just … its just … black pop music …

    what’s hiphop about it ?…

    ^

    he’s rhymin. he’s a rapper. he may not fit the paradigm, but he’s definitely a rapper….if u go on radio shows and freestyle live, you’re a rapper.

    …and just so you know, hip hop has been pop music for a very long time now.

    even PE and NWA was pop music.

  73. Joe 88 Says:

    i thought his “A Star is Born” verse was fairly average compared to some of his mixtape joints …

    word to “I Get Up”, “Simba” or “Lights Please”

    ^Co-sign, I really didn’t even bug out when I heard J. Cole on BP3, he did his thing, but like land said, he’s done way better. I can’t say I expected more, cause outshining your boss can only lead to bad things, he complimented hov on that song more than try to crush him

    water break freestyle > A Star is born

    @ Joe,

    you figure out which Hov freestyle I was talking about? I couldn’t get into that Q-tip post for some reason..

  81. landLORD Says:

    i know Cudi is a rapper… but the vast majority of MOTM contains no “raps” …

    its definitely a pop LP… just like Kanye West’s last LP …

    some rappers are choosing to expand into making pop records to increase the earning potential of their brand … but since they are originally hiphop artists, folks are being broad & vague when labeling the artwork …

    there are rappers making pop songs and pop artists trying to rap … the dividing lines between the genres has become blurred to the point that it hurts the uniqueness of either genre … thats why traditional R & B fell off … cause it became inundated with “hiphop” influences and vice versa, until now they are almost one and the same …

    Pop music is a music genre that developed from the mid-1950s as a softer alternative to rock ‘n’ roll and later to rock music. It has a focus on commercial recording, often orientated towards a youth market, usually through the medium of relatively short and simple love songs. While these basic elements of the genre have remained fairly constant, pop music has absorbed influences from most other forms of popular music, particularly borrowing from the development of rock music, and utilizing key technological innovations to produce new variations on existing themes.

    you equate a artist has have X amount of fans as Pop….Wu Tang has fans all over the world…they dont make Pop love songs….

  87. landLORD Says:

    you cant sell millions of records anymore making a true hiphop LP … the true hiphop heads dont even buy LPs like that … we too leery of the record industry and at “the establishment” in general, to spend our money knowing that the artist doesnt even see the majority of it …

    edit

    you cant equate

    i totally agree. but from Cudis first mixtape to now he’s kept it 100. theres no indication that he’s “popped” up his style to reach any sort of audience. in fact, its a miracle that he’s been accepted with that atrocious flow.

    but what he’s got going for him, like i was talkin bout before, is a very clear point of view. and his music is honest, which is a breath of fresh air in a game full of liars and fakers.

    this so called emo, hipster rapper is keepin it more real than most of these thug niggas. call it what u want, but thats hip hop to me…..and dude does spit on the album.

    ^^^^^^
    sure…but Meth and Ghost Rae, GZA and the rest of the Wu’s fans…are fans because of the aggressive content music that Wu were about that Protect Your Neck, Wu Tang Clan aint nothing to fuck with, not the Jodeci, Dru Hill, Beyonce songs they were one

    –Pick the obvious ones Patriots, Vikings, Dallas, San Diego, Green bay, New Orleans.

    Others are sort of 50/50. Like Philly vs Carolina (philly)

    Giants vs Washington

    Miami vs Atlanta
