Cole’s live performance in Toronto on Friday, December 3rd, we’ll be releasing small segments of the dope interview every 2-3 days leading up to the release of the entire interview on the morning of the show.

I have what the rap world is missing and what they’re asking for. – J. Cole [Interview]

HipHopCanada: Am I reading the production credits right? Only three songs you don’t have production credits on? Do you feel that gives you a leg up creatively when you make the beat and rap over it?

J. Cole: It do man. I always feel like nobody knows your sound better than you. I just feel like it always gives you an advantage. You’ll always be able to create. You’ll never have to worry about relying on a producer. You’re only relying on yourself.

Written by Jonathon “Bizz” Brown for HipHopCanada
