Anderson .Paak fans are anxiously awaiting the rapper’s third studio album, Oxnard, due later this month. While they wait, .Paak hit up The Angie Martinez Show to reveal some details about the project, including his full list of album features and more.

Dr. Dre, QTip, Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar will all make appearances on Oxnard, .Paak told Martinez. He also spoke on how the J. Cole feature came about.

“Him and Dre was working and I was opening up for him on his last tour,” he said. “He was like ‘Yo Dre played me something, this crazy one,” .Paak recalled, explaining how Dre’s preview won Cole over. “It was unfinished, so I needed something…he was in town when I was working on it, I was wrapping it up. And I was like ‘If you around, pull up’ and he pulled right up.”

While Chance the Rapper isn’t featured on the album, .Paak says they’ve definitely recorded some music together that may or may not appear on Chance’s next offering.

Watch Martinez get the scoop up top and tune into Oxnard on November 16.

J. Cole Explains Why He “Loves” That Trump Is In Office, Read Before You Judge

Believe it or not there was a time in Hip-Hop when Donald Trump was a popular name used by rappers to describe their deepness of their pockets or their monetary aspirations. But then in 2016 Donald Trump went on a historically racist and divisive presidential campaign that landed him in the White House and ultimately created a resistance that’s united people from all across the board. Since then rappers like Fat Joe and Snoop Dogg have been outright critical of Donald Trump’s presidency and now J. Cole has added himself to the growing list of entertainers using their platform to call out the Russian patsy. In an interview with Billboard the “1985” rapper admits that though he didn’t vote in 2016 he’s ultimately glad that Trump found himself running things from the Oval Office. Let him explain.

“With Trump in office, I love that America gets to see the truth. If Hillary Clinton was in office, it would be the most fucking disingenuous shit because everybody would be thinking that everything’s cool because we got an incredibly qualified female president. Which would’ve been amazing on so many levels. But all the shit we see right now would’ve still existed; it would’ve just been quiet. And I prefer this shit to be out loud. I prefer an honest America. I prefer the world seeing that, yes, we’re a country that is dumb enough — no disrespect — [that] we got duped into electing Donald Trump.”

As terrible a time as we’re living through right now, he’s not wrong. Not only does the world get to see what minorities have been saying about America for decades, they also get to feel the long racist arm of Amerikkka branch out and effect lives in their respective “sh*thole” countries.

And like a lot of young democrats, J. Cole was a fan of Bernie Sanders but after Hillary got the ticket to the big race he fell back from going to vote because “Hillary Clinton wasn’t somebody that was motivating me to go vote. If it was Bernie Sanders, I would’ve showed up and voted. I would’ve been the first one in line, no bullshit. No disrespect to Hillary.”

But politics wasn’t the only subject that Cole speak on.

He went on to talk about a long conversation he had with the late XXXTENTACION before his passing and even touched on the abuse allegations that Kelis threw at Nas saying, “Yeah, that hurt. I ain’t going to lie. That hurts. [Pauses.] It feels weird because I fuck with Nas, but I just have to be honest. I came up seeing too much fucked-up shit for that to be acceptable. I don’t care who it is. I don’t fuck with people abusing women, and I don’t fuck with people not taking care of their kids.”

Check out the entire interview here and let us know how you feel about where Cole stands on political and social issues.

J. Cole Remembers ‘Super Intense’ Conversation he Had With XXXTentacion

J. Cole graced the cover of Billboard and revealed that he had mixed feelings about XXXTentacion’s assault accusations. He recalled a “super intense” conversation he had with the young rapper months before his passing. 

“I spoke to him on FaceTime one day in February for, like, three hours,” Cole recalled. “His management reached out to Ib and asked if he could FaceTime me or call me. It was a super-intense conversation. He left a mark on me, just as a person.”

They began talking about spirituality later in the conversation and that’s when Cole realized X was battling bigger demons. “He was talking about spiritually and mentally, and that was intense because I was like, ‘Huh? I’m not on no level,’” Cole said. “He was praising me while also saying he was going to achieve whatever it is he felt that I had. I’ve dealt with mentally ill people in my life before, many of them. And right away, I notice that this kid is super passionate and smart, but I could also see that he was so deep in his mind.”

From the FaceTime call, and his countless conversations with young Black men who are caught up in the criminal justice system, J. Cole concluded that X dealt with past trauma which is causing him to inflict pain on to others. 

“Because anybody who would do the shit that he did…Hurt people hurt people,” he said, referring to X’s horrific abuse allegations. “I’ve walked through prisons and talked to these dudes who got life. They took someone’s life at 16 or 17 years old. You haven’t had the chance to process your trauma at that age. I’ma be sympathetic to a kid who has clearly been through so much fucked-up shit that he inflicted this on someone else.”

The convo then shifted to Nas who was publicly accusing of abusing his ex-wife, Kelis. 

“It feels weird because I fuck with Nas, but I just have to be honest. I came up seeing too much fucked-up shit for that to be acceptable. I don’t care who it is,” he said. “I don’t fuck with people abusing women, and I don’t fuck with people not taking care of their kids.”

J. Cole‘s Dreamville Festival was supposed to go down in North Carolina on September 15, but the show had to be rescheduled due to the arrival of Hurricane Florence. The one-day fest will now take place in April of next year with a new lineup to be released at a later date, according to a press release.

Ibrahim Hamad, Cole’s manager and President of Dreamville Records, said in a statement: “We battled with the idea of moving forward with the festival at this time or formally cancelling the event. But after receiving unwavering support from the fans and the community, we are excited to announce Dreamville Festival will now take place on April 6, 2019. We are proud to say that Dreamville this spring will also serve as a benefit to hurricane victims in the Carolinas. We hope that fans in North Carolina and across the US will not only join in celebrating the very first Dreamville Festival, but also the resilience of this amazing community.”

According to the press release, it’s going down at Dorothea Dix Park near downtown Raleigh, North Carolina and Cole will still headline, of course. Tickets purchased for the previous date will be honored come April, but disappointed fans also have the option to request a full refund by October 5th, 2018. Stay tuned for more details.
