J. Cole‘s Born Sinner album dropped today alongside Kanye West’s Yeezus project, Mac Miller‘s sophomore effort Watching Movies With The Sound Off and Statik Selektah‘s Extended Play LP. To promote his album Jermaine sat down with BET and revealed that he actually had the chance to play his “Let Nas Down” track for Nas himself. The two artists met on a 6AM flight leaving Houston, a few days after the track was recorded.
“I was telling people, this album has so many moments that connected that let me know I was doing the right thing, and that was one of them. I give him my headphones, Im trying to hear what part of the song he’s on, cause he’s behind me. About a minute in to the song, he’s just like “whooo!” beating my chair, just bangin my chair. Overall he was wild, the look on his face was like, honored, honored that I would make that, and also highly impressed. So that was a huge moment for me.”
