In an interview with "The Breakfast Club", Ab-Soul confirmed that the long-rumored Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole collaborative album is in the works. Ab-soul revealed he recorded a verse for the album on the New York Power 105.1 radio show after some prompting from Charlemagne, "There is a Kendrick/Cole album. They got it. They got something in the works. They been working on that motherf***er for awhile." He was also asked about a Black Hippy album, which he declined to give information on.
Since the radio show aired, Ab-Soul has sent an email to The Fader, which neither confirmed nor denied the record's existence. Last year, on Black Friday, Kendrick and Cole teamed up for a pair of remixes. Afterwards, Kendrick's sister shared an Instagram post about that led to the initial speculation behind a collaboration.
On Friday, J. Cole released 4 Your Eyez Only, his follow up to 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The album is likely to be the artist's fourth-straight number one record. Ab-Soul also released a new record on Friday, Do What Thou Wilt. Both albums were features on ARTISTdirect's Top Albums of the Week.
J. Cole doesn't currently have any upcoming tour dates. Meanwhile, Kendrick's only upcoming performance is a New Year's Eve gig at Drai's Rooftop Nightclub in Las Vegas. There has been no other information revealed about the possibility of an upcoming collaborative record, but it seems the two do have some upcoming time in their schedules. ARTISTdirect will keep you updated as more information is released.
