J. Cole’s In Depth Commentary on The Sideline Story


As if we didn’t know J. Cole was genius enough, he goes in depth with Muve Music about the concepts and creative process put into all the songs on his majorly successful album Cole World: A Sideline Story. The interviews are very cool to listen to, especially if you take joy in figuring out what goes through an artist’s mind. Now I have no idea if this is common knowledge but Cole mention that his idea for Work Out stemmed from Kanye’s song Workout Plan off College Dropout. Even so to me it is amazing that he took literally the last few seconds of Workout Plan and made a brand new song out of it. And then to pair that with a Paula Abdul rendition … You have to be musically inclined to just that kind of ear and instinct. If you don’t know what I am referring to check out Kanye’s original song at 4:47 seconds.
