J. Cole Got Advice From 50 Cent In ‘New York Times’ Studio Session
Sixteen tracks weren’t enough for J. Cole to share all of the music he’s been recording over the past couple years, so his June 18 sophomore album Born Sinner includes noteworthy bonus cuts like “New York Times” with 50 Cent. During his visit to “RapFix Live” on Wednesday (June 19), the Roc Nation rapper relived his memorable studio session with Fif, where he got some advice that he’ll never forget. Read the fully story at MTV News.
“When I’m in the studio with people, especially with people like TLC and 50, I don’t wanna overstep boundaries,” he said, explaining that he was nervous to give critical suggestions to Fif. “I’m still humble and just lucky to be here so when he was recording, there were creative things I wanted to suggest or say, ‘maybe you can get that one better’— and he was asking me how I feel, but he could tell I was hesitant.”
“And he’s like, ‘No, this is your joint, you have to get it right. You’ve gotta tell me.’ He was very adamant. I’ll never forget that.”
