J. Cole recently sat down with HardKnockTV for a candid sitdown, we’ll let them tell it.

J Cole talks Paula Abdul influence in new track “Work Out”. The conversation continues with Nick Huff Barili asking J if Pac was alive and they collaborated together what would the track be about. Think you know? Try again! Jermaine doesn’t like to be put in a box. Speaking of which, New Fans vs Old Fans is the next topic we hit, with J saying that his old fans have to give him room to grown but that he will always represent what the love about him. Cole says that some of his favorite artists never grew and that eventually he lost interest in them cause they stayed in the same lane their whole career. Any guesses whom he is talking about? I have a few!

Lastly J talks about the deliberate plan to not over-saturate fans with information about his life + leak music every week for the last couple years because the album was not ready. Now that there is a release date you can expect to see a lot more of J COLE. COLEWORLD Sept 27th!
