"J. Cole respected my music when I first put out the Kendrick Lamar EP. Before I put that out, nahmean? That’s what crazy, ‘cause a lot of people are like, “Aw, J. Cole fucking with you now ‘cause of Dre.” Nah, that’s been my dude. I’ve been going back and forth over the phone, and texting, before a lot of muhfuckers even knew who I was from the jump. When I was begging internet sites and blogs to put my music up, he respected me lyrically and as a man period. So I’ll never forget that from him. That’s always been my dude."
