    Kendrick Lamar Talks Joint Album With J. Cole, "To Pimp A Butterfly" On Hot 97
    Of all the seemingly harebrained, dream scenarios that rap fans dream, up a Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole joint album is one of the craziest. The thing is, both artists have lent credibility to the rumors by saying they've recorded together a lot in the past and dropping hints every now and then. The latest of these comes in Kendrick Lamar's interview on Hot 97 on the day of his announcement as a Summer Jam headliner.

    Cozz is one of the most exciting new rappers we've come across over the past year or two, and he was quickly scooped up by J. Cole's Dreamville imprint (after having only one real song/music video out, no less). Cozz's debut Dreamville release, Cozz & Effect, did nothing to quell our excitement. The West Coast rapper combines lyrical warfare with digestible beats, not so unlike his Dreamville boss J. Cole.

    J. Cole is sometimes referred to as J. Snore (yes, we see you in the comments), and that's simply because most of his music is decidedly not-bangers. However, every now and then the North Carolina rapper comes through with a record you can blast in the whip, and on 2014 Forest Hills Drive, "G.O.M.D." was one such track. It's a highlight and fan-favorite for good reason.

    J. Cole and Dale Earnhart Jr. seemed an unlikely duo for the cover of ESPN, but they do have a strange and hilarious connection. Beside the fact that both men hail from North Carolina, Earnhart Jr. actually got a shoutout on Cole's album, one that perplexed even the racecar driver himself.

    There's a reason that the marching band of Lousiana's Southern University is nicknamed "The Human Jukebox." In addition to their duties playing the school's fight song and other classics, they frequently cover contemporary music, even appearing in a Jonas Brothers video in 2013. Their latest cover is of particular note for hip-hop fans, as it's taken from one of the best-reviewed rap albums of last year.
