Well, do we have a new collaborative project from two rap superstars on the way again already? Although Drake and Future just recently shocked the world with their collaborative What a Time to be Alive album just a few months ago, it seems like another monster collaborative album could be on the way from two other elite emcees.
Though it’s been teased for what feels like forever, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar’s collaborative project may very well be real and may be on its way. Today, the two got the internet talking by simultaneously releasing freestyles over each others’ tracks. Cole tackled Kendrick’s “Alright” instrumental while K. Dot appeared on J. Cole’s “A Tale of Two Citiez.”
On Cole’s “Alright” freestyle, he ends his verse rapping
“‘When you and K. Dot’s sh*t drop? B*tch, never
They can’t handle two black n*ggas this clever
But this February bet shit get scary when I fuck around and drop –“
Though Cole does insinuate that there is no album with Kendrick on the way, something definitely seems to be brewing. It seems a bit pointless to drop the tracks in unison if there were no plans to drop the album together. And although J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive dropped in 2014, it seems a bit soon for him to be dropping a follow-up solo effort.
Time will tell. Listen to both freestyles below.
