J.Cole paid a visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform his Miguel-powered single “Power Trip.” The North Carolina rhymesayer received some great instrumental and vocal assistance by the legendary Roots crew. In case you haven’t heard so far, Jermaine’s sophomore album Born Sinner coincides with Kanye West’s sixth solo album Yeezus on June 18.
It looks like J. Cole also recently had an interview with The Juice, where he discussed moving his album date up, and here’s what he had to say:
Instantly the lightbulb [turned on]… it got real. I made one phone call to somebody that would know, just to make sure first. As soon as I got it confirmed, I was like, ‘Yo…’ The idea hit me instantly: ‘You got to go to that date.
I’m not going to sit [here]… I worked too hard to come a week later after Kanye West drops an amazing album. It’d be like, ‘Oh and J.Cole dropped too, a week later.’ Nah. I’m going to go see him on that date. He’s the greatest. So it’s like, I’m a competitor by nature so it was instant, it wasn’t even a thought.
At the same time, let’s not forget this is Kanye West. He bets 100, 1,000, whatever the perfect is. His track record is flawless. I’m only expecting an incredible album from him. But I know what I have.
