We still haven't got the Kendrick Lamar J Cole album that's been whispered about for years.
But we do have this new tidbit about the Kendrick Cole relationship thanks to super sleuth interviewer Nardwuar.
Nardwaur found out that Cole helped put Dr. Dre onto Kendrick. Cole was stunned that Nardwaur knew this.
“Who told you that? Who gave you that piece of information?” Cole replied, after looking shocked for a period of time. "The answer is, yes. I did. I’m not gonna say I was the first to tell him ... When I brought him to Dre ... I was like, ‘Yo, you gotta sign this kid from Compton. Shout out to Dr. Dre he made the right decision."
Later in the interview, Cole spoke about how he tried to sign Kendrick.
"I don’t know what I would’ve signed him to, you know what I mean?” he explained. “We didn’t have our business intact, but that’s how much I rocked with him at that time. I met him, and instantly was highly impressed. That would’ve been the first artist in my mind [to sign], but come to find out, he had bigger sht going on.”
