Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole album rumors

Fans have been waiting for the Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole album, and recent reports suggest that it might be well on its way to the market.


According to hotnewhiphop, a video has been uploaded to the Cole World fan site, which shows the rapper composing beats in a studio. Dreamville producer Ron Gilmore later joins the rapper in the studio.

Many took this as a sign that the rapper is working on the album, which is a collaboration between rappers Lamar and Cole that started way back in 2011.


However, Lamar was sued for plagiarism after allegedly copying from the 1975 Bill Withers song “Don’t You Want to Stay.” Furthermore, Sameerah Satterthwaite was asking $200 million aside from demanding Lamar to return his Grammy award for illegally using themes in the poem “Revolutionary Women.”


The charges against Lamar spurred the rumor that the collaboration album is no longer happening, as the rapper won’t have time for it.


However, Complex learned from the beatmaker Cardo that the album may still be released soon.


“I ended up talking to J. Cole and had like a 30-minute conversation just talking about music and everything,” he said. “I thought that was the dopest s**t as well because I’m a fan of J. Cole’s music. He said he’s got this record and just needs the files, so I ended up sending him files and this and that,” the beatmaker added.


Top Dawg Entertainment Dave Free also affirmed MTV News the possibility of the album coming out in public.


“Everything’s a possibility,” said Free. “But I’ma say this, too: Kendrick and Cole are in a place in their careers and in their lives where they have to keep going. Of course they’re two of the biggest rappers out, but they still have to keep grinding. There’s so much work that they have to continue to do,” he continued.


The Lamar and Cole collaboration album is rumored to hit the shelves in the last quarter of 2016.
