J. Cole or Kendrick Lamar? Who had the better ‘Black Friday’ remix?


November 29, 2015

On Friday, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar swapped freestyles over each other’s instrumentals in honor of Black Friday. Kendrick raps over J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive track “A Tale Of 2 Citiez,” while J. Cole spits on  “Alright,” a track off of To Pimp A Butterfly.

The Fayetteville, North Carolina born rapper, J. Cole and Compton’s own Lamar, who are close friends and collaborators, have been hinting at a joint project for a while, but no details have surfaced until now. J. Cole says in the last line of his freestyle “but this February, bet sh*t gets scary when I f*ck around and drop.” Fans hope, this may be a clue that the album release date is coming soon.
