Questions & Answers
I’m worried J Cole’s album might be a flop after hearing Work Out. What do you think?
Work Out was underwhelming. In The Morning is J.Cole’s biggest track so far, whether his core fanbase like it or not – however, they could always re release In The Morning. The only problem is it has Drake on it. It was also when he made the switch from college tours to arenas/opening act for established artists, so his approach had to change.
For his lead single it’s important he stands on his own 2 feet, and by that I mean doing that without a big feature, like Wiz Khalifa and Drake did.
Jay-Z doesn’t usually do singles with his own artists until they’re established – tough love as Dame used to say. But what he should do is have J Cole do a bunch of features to get his name out there, so people who aren’t J Cole fans wanna hear more than a 16 from this guy that keeps doing tracks with their favorite artists. Therefore, I wouldn’t write him off yet.
What’s this years summer anthem gonna be? I’m On One is cool but it’s not really an anthem to me.
I couldn’t really say. Hip hop is suffering from a lack of hits at the moment, but The Game could resurrect interest in his album with a summer anthem. Mind you, Watch The Throne is bound to have a few hits on it.
Any news on the Dipset reunion? I saw a video of them working with Dr Dre but nothing has been released.
Vado & Diplomats are both on Interscope but there’s no release date for any Diplomat albums, so we can assume it’s either unfinished or they haven’t started working on it yet.
