“It’s just a bar, bro, A lot of my bars be really on point, but man that’s just a flex. I’m not gonna charge [artists] $2000 a word. I don’t even charge [artists] for the verse. I’m doing this shit because I’m inspired to do it.” J. Cole Stated.
This actually shows how he cares for his followers artists and wants to help young and upcoming Rapper succeed in the industry by not putting a charge on them for a feature or collaboration.
Meanwhile, despite all his kind did to upcoming artists in the industry, there are still some narrative stating that J. Cole hates new and upcoming rappers, which is one of the has has discussed in some of his previous interviews.
