On Monday, VIBE released a 20th anniversary cover featuring soulful singers Janelle Monae and Robin Thicke. Yesterday, the mag went from the realm of R&B to the world of hip-hop when it dropped a second 20th anniversary collector's issue featuring Nas and J.Cole on the cover.
Even though Cole may have felt like he let Nas down at one point, he may not have known this: "When I heard Cole on Friday Night Lights, I was like, 'Yo, this kid is nice! Who the f**k is this?" I'm listening like, "Wow." No one make me want to write; he made me want to write," says Nas.
Someone who is able to motivate a legend is certainly a legend in the making. And the two lyricists grace the cover in that manner.
