J. Cole Talks Drake Collaboration & Jay Electronica On Roc Nation

At the Heineken Inspire event in NYC a day ago, J. Cole spoke to VIBE about the fan favorite collaboration with Drake ‘In The Morning‘ which appears on his just released Friday Night Lights mixtape.


“It was my first time in Paris, and I got a text from Drake. And it was him just telling me he heard ‘In The Morning’ for the first time. My real fans will know that’s it an older song,” J.Cole tells VIBE. “He said it was incredible, and I’ve always wanted to bring that record back to life because the original version I recorded in my bedroom—in my old crib, in my small room.”

“When he hit me, I was already thinking that over the past few months,” Cole continued. “I told him that I appreciated it, and he was really making me want to bring it back to life. He said, ‘If you do it, make sure you save me 16 on the song.’”

Jermaine also elaborated on Jay Elect’s recent Roc Nation signing. Go here to watch the full video interview.
