J. Cole on Sound Session

A few weeks back on Sound Session, we had the pleasure of chopping it up with one of hip-hop’s rising stars, J. Cole, during his first trip to Seattle.  I’ll admit that I wasn’t up on J back when The Come Up dropped, but a few homies recommended it shortly after the release, and I once I checked it out, I was hooked.  Now that The Warm Up has solidified his “got next” status and he’s on tour with Jay-Z, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes a household name.

Peep our 3 part interview with Cole to hear him discuss all sorts of topics:

Part 1:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • His background and influences
  • How he found his own voice on the mic
  • His first rap names
  • The tenacity in his delivery
  • How graduating college helped him as an artist and person
  • His experiences hustling beats as a producer

Part 2:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • His audition with Jay-Z and when he got signed to Roc Nation
  • The Come Up vs. The Warm Up
  • The state of his basketball game these days
  • The Blueprint 3 tour and Jay’s cosign
  • The status of his debut album
  • His production influences

Part 3:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • Where he sees himself in 5 years
  • What he would change about the music industry
  • His 5 favorite foods
  • The decline of MySpace
