It sounds like Kanye West may be holding up production of J. Cole’s latest album. During Cole’s performance at his Dreamville Festival Sunday, after he was done performing a song with a Kanye beat, Cole asked Kanye to clear a sample for him. Now, presumably, this means Cole wants to use a Kanye beat on his new album, but it seems like Kanye has yet to say yes or maybe he’s already said no. J. Cole and Kanye have not always had the best relationship, as Cole has critiqued Kanye’s behavior both in word and on song. We shall see what happens going forward.
