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.
