J-Cole
In a recent interview, Cole discussed how he was told in the past that he was “too boring” to appear on magazine covers. “In 2012, it was infuriating,” he said. “It was mad hurtful, it felt more like I was a victim.”

The musician explained how he moved beyond those feelings, saying: “Once I took control of my own sh*t, stopped giving power to other people for my happiness and success, it became like, ‘Oh word, I’ll show you how boring I am.’ And it became another person to prove wrong.”

Cole also revealed the initial inspiration for ‘KOD’ came from watching Kendrick Lamar in Detroit on his ‘DAMN.’ tour last year. “Kendrick’s show gave me chills because I got to see what it was like to have a hit album performed, and it set off a desire. It was a recognition – like, ‘Oh, I’ll take that again.’ Like looking at a menu, ‘I’ll have that again.’”
J Cole is currently in Nigeria ahead of his at the Castle Lite Unlocks Concert this Friday, April 27, 2018.
