Drake touches on what it will be like going on tour with J. Cole, who he says he’s never really gotten acquainted with.
Comparisons between rappers J. Cole and Drake have been plentiful both on the Internet and among music fans. With top of the lot co-signs and burgeoning lyrical talent, it is only natural that parallels be made between the two emcees. Drake recently recorded a track called “In the Morning,” for Cole’s newest mixtape Friday Night Lights, and told MTV’s Sway that enmity between the two of them is simply a figment of the public’s imagination.
Drake and J. Cole will team up for a European tour in January. Drake told MTV that he hasn’t gotten a chance to get to know Cole yet, but that they will probably engage in some freestyle sessions while on tour.
Before the tour, however, Drake will be appearing in a televised concert put on by Fuse. The event is called Fuse Presents: Drake Live From Radio City Music Hall, and will include appearances from several top artists like Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, Fabolous, Trey Songz, and others.
Prior to the airing, Fuse will broadcast an entire day of Drake content, including Loaded: Drake.
The televised event airs on Nov. 24 at 9 P.M. EST.
