It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard from J. Cole, but last night in New York he made a guest appearance at Mike Barber and DJ Spynfo’s Mic Check showcase. Since dropping his album Cole World: The Sideline Story, Cole’s mostly stayed out of the spotlight and hasn’t dropped much music since.
“I ain’t drop nothing in a while because, man, we in this digital age where s**t moves so fast. N****s got songs every week and you can’t even keep up with this s**t,” Cole told the intimate crowd. “I’m a fan and I can’t keep up with this s**t so I had to take a step back.”
Cole has a point, and right after explaining that point he recited a never before heard verse called “Chaining Day.” Check it out after the break.
