J. Cole, Drake 'In The Morning' Video Due On Valentine's Day

Originally posted by Inactive User
Fans had to wait for J. Cole and Drake to finally collaborate on "In the Morning," but they won't need to hold their breath to get a visual for the melodic number.

Cole confirmed the clip will be released on Valentine's Day. The song, from Cole's third mixtape, Friday Night Lights, arrived online back in November.

"I realize the importance of that now, the visual aspect and how much fans want to see that," Cole explained during his appearance on "RapFix Live" last week.

The Roc Nation artist admitted that in the past, time constraints kept him from shooting videos. Now, however, having just been on tour with Drake overseas, the two parties were together and managed to produce a video for their slow, brooding "In the Morning."

"I wanted to give a feel for how that tour felt," Cole said. "And just the magic of that tour. To give people a look into that."

At the time of Cole's "RapFix Live" appearance, he said the clip was being edited, although he didn't reveal who helmed the shoot.

The two MCs have been linked for some time due to their lyrical abilities, but online fodder had positioned the pair as rivals rather than allies, a claim Cole struck down when "In the Morning" debuted.

"I got a text from Drake," Cole told MTV News about the origins of their collaboration. "Now, I kind of just let people say what they say on the Internet or when they have discussions, but the real truth is me and Drake are cool, and have been cool and have been building a relationship. But he hit me when I was in Paris [on a tour], like, 'Yo, I just heard this "In the Morning." ' He had just heard it for the first time. He said it was so good that he told me some wild story, you know those exaggerated stories, like, 'I need better beats,' just one of those type of things, giving me props."


I find that funny. Both of them are average but I'll take Drake's flow over Cole's anyday.

J. Cole Says Kendrick Lamar Joint Mixtape Will 'Tear Up The World'

Mixtape: Title is under wraps for now

Headliners: J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar

Essential Info: J. Cole quickly earned a rep as a super MC with powers to steal a high-profile collaboration with a single verse. But the North Carolina rapper is also a producer, and before his highly anticipated debut album drops, Cole wants to get behind the boards and play nice with his peers. Hence his recent concoction for Kansas upstart artist XV called "Smallville."

"I sent him some beats," Cole explained of the connection. "This is what I decided as a producer: I'm at zero right now, in terms of my reputation among people. Other than my stuff, the industry really doesn't know that I do this, and they don't really know the beats that I'm sitting on. So instead of waiting on a call from Jay-Z, the call from Nas, like, 'Yo, come [produce] my album'

Damn I used to love J. Cole but he has gone from sorta interesting to very boring in barely a year. It's really sad that Jay-Z can't market any of his artists or give them any sort of smart artistic direction...

Another interesting tidbit: The project will feature cole's production and lamar's rhymes with cole only showcasing his lyrical prowess on a few of the tracks.

"everything's going to be 90 percent produced by him, me busting over them, and he should be featured on a few too," lamar said. "i know he wanted to do most of the tracks. We got some records, man." via - mtv

Meet J. Cole's Video Vixen: Alexandra Joner

Originally posted by Inactive User
The video for J. Cole's "In The Morning," featuring Drake, was released online last night. And while the song is great and the visuals are stellar, what really piqued our interest was homegirl in the video. The buzzed blonde hairdo, almond shaped eyes, thin neck and.... yeah, we've got something of a jones for Alexandra Joner. There was speculation that she was actually his girl in real life, and while he may have hit it in the morning (you know these rapper guys), she isn't. Here are five things you didn't know about J. Cole's European crush.

1) She's Norwegian, of Cuban descent.

2) She's been in other videos (Sean Kingston and Justin Bieber's "Eenie Meenie," Quincy Jones ft. Ludacris "Soul Bossa Nostra.")

3) She's socially networked. Peep her facebook, twitter, myspace page and blog. Maybe YOU can hit in the morning too.

4) In 2007, she was on Season 2 of "Dansefeber," which is the Norwegian version of "So You Think You Can Dance." She lost in week 8.

5) In an odd turn of events, she was threatened and bitten by a Cuban diplomat, Carmen Julia Guerra, while outside of the Cuban embassy in Oslo. She was partaking in a non-violent demonstration in remembrance of Orlando Zapata Tamayo, a Cuban political activist who died during a hunger strike in a Havana prison.
