J. Cole covers GQ’s April Issue.

The Dreamville boss and multi-platinum rapper J. Cole cover the April Issue of the fashion magazine GQ. In the interview he talks about many topics including being an introvert, how father changed him, working with more artists these days, getting out of his comfort zone and more.

He also talks about not winning Grammy in his career & losing the Best New Artist Grammy in 2012. “I’m not supposed to have a Grammy, you know what I mean? At least not right now, and maybe never.” says J. Cole.”And if that happens, then that’s just how it was supposed to be. It would’ve been disastrous for me because subconsciously it would’ve been sending me a signal of like ‘Okay, I am supposed to be this guy.’ But I would’ve been the dude that had that one great album and then fizzled out.” Check out the full cover story/interview here.

At 34, J. Cole is undertaking the professional equivalent of a journey up the road to Hana: He’s suddenly collaborating with other artists; he’s forming new connections to the SoundCloud set; he’s more active on Twitter; he even bought a place in NYC. “I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m like, ‘How long am I gonna be doing this for?’ I’m starting to realize like, oh shit—let’s say I stopped this year. I would feel like I missed out on certain experiences, you know? Working with certain artists, being more collaborative, making more friends out of peers, making certain memories that I feel like if I don’t, I’m gonna regret it one day.” Read J. Cole’s full GQ cover story at the link in bio. (?@awolerizku) #newgq #jcole
