J. Cole has remained patient with his releases, withholding new music for the past several months. But on Wednesday night, the Roc Nation MC debuted an acapella version of a new song tentatively titled “Chaining Day.”
“I ain’t dropped nothing in a while ’cause I feel like, man, we in this digital age where shit moves so fast,” said Cole. “Ni**as got songs every week, you can’t even keep up with this shit.” But, he admits, “I be getting a itch.”
He continued, “Pardon me if I f*ck up, this is my first time ever doing this sh*t. This is about where I’m at now, and being a smart young man who’s supposed to know better. And I told myself I would never become that guy—you know what I’m saying? I’ma be a rapper, but I ain’t wanna ever be that ni**a. That’s what I would say, and then this happened,” said Cole as he lifted his Jesus piece.
Rick Ross treats his lady to the fruits of his labor on “Diced Pineapples” featuring Drake and Wale, one of the most-anticipated cuts off his album God Forgives, I Don’t, available Tuesday.
“When I got out of the hospital—you know, I had a seizure last year—when I was leaving, the doctor told me, ‘You gotta eat some more fruit, drink you some water, eat fruit and just relax for a little while,'” Rozay told MTV News.
“My fruit of choice was pineapples. For the next three weeks, I woke up every morning and ate diced pineapples, and I put the concept together. Drizzy came in, as well as Wale, and it’s kinda like, ‘She could be my diced pineapple. This special lady, she could be what I wake up to every morning and help me get by every day.”
Pusha T recently gave MTV a preview of “40 Acres,” a cut off his solo debut, expected to drop later this year.
“Unpolished, unapologetic, might’ve broke a heart or two, but gave an honest effort/ You see my nonchalant attitude is always f— it/ 35 years of marriage, and my mama left it,” raps the G.O.O.D. Music MC on the track, which is co-produced by The-Dream and Rico Love.
