First and foremost go fuck with that Truly Yours 2 cause that shit is fire top to bottom.
Shoutout to my brother Cole for puttin a fiend on it. Honored to be a part of such a dope piece of work.
Love looking at that tracklisting and seeing my brothers Canei Finch and Ron Gilmore on there. To make music with a set of homies you really fuck with is truly a blessing. Dreamville’s an institution, and we got so much more coming.
As for ” Cousins ” we did this joint in LA at NO ID’s studio. I just remember being lit, sittin on some huge ass bean bag contraption, and listenin to Cole going thru beats to send artists. this shit came on and it was like :
” Yoooooo this shit hard” – Me
” Yooooo u wanna get on this ” – Cole
” Yoooooo… hell yea ” -Me
I think we sat in that room and wrote for 20 mins before we cut the record.
Crazy thing is we were just writing and when we spit our verses we noticed we both made allusions to cousins. That shit wasn’t even discussed I guess it was all in the vibe. so we were like:
” Yoooooo we gotta name this shit Cousins”
I swear the whole thing happened in an hour.

Shouts to Canei Finch and Ron Gilmore.
I love being in the studio when new music drops. The energy is always intoxicating. This that windows open at 9 pm driving down the highway smoking a blunt with the homies music.
Seeing this video come to fruition is one of the cooler experiences I’ve ever had.
PS. FUCK WITH YOUR BOY’S CAMEO IN THE CLEAN VERSION AT :46. I MADE IT TO MTV. YA’LL CAN’T TELL ME SHIT.
One year ago I went to Best Buy and copped five copies of Cole’s debut album. Tonight Diplo and Cole dropped this joint ‘Get Free’. In one year we’ve seen Cole go from underground rapper to hitting up Diplo and telling him he got bars on deck for his brand new song. I always talk about how inspirational Cole’s journey has been but ya’ll don’t even know half of the story. LISTEN TO THESE FUCKING BARS.
PS. Shouts to Adam aka one of the biggest fiends I know and the Dreamville nigga that creeps behind the scenes doing shit like sending Cole this beat. Better believe the fiends put a little birdie in one of their favorite rapper’s ear about reaching out to one of their favorite djs and making this an official remix.
The final cut of Cole’s new song he debuted at the San Bernardino Rock the Bells stop. People were really fucking with this one, a lot of fans constantly requested this on Twitter. Cole did some dope shit today and responded to a random twitter fan’s request for this record by emailing him the song:
ELITE ELITE ELITE!!!
The big homie Elite dropped this video this morning. I’m pretty sure he was the editor + director and yupp he’s his own boss (that’s a Kreayshawn reference for those who didn’t get it). Shit is dope man. I love when artists give you a peak into their real life in their videos. Who hasn’t drank way too many forties, crushed handfulls of potato chips and then fell and got stuck between signs? I HAVE. Fuck with it. Dreamville shit.
PS. Do yourself a favor and bump Awaken. You need a little Elite in your life.
I don’t know about you but for me, I remember different periods of my life based on the music I was listening to at that moment. Maybe a year or so (I used to be better at this but then I developed an affinity for marijuana and now I can barely remember to put on socks before I bounce from the crib), Cole was on tour thru Canada and I dipsauced from work and drove up with Bas to ride out on the bus. One night after a show Cole came off stage super amped, the crowd was crazy, the energy was … Contagious. Cole books it right from the stage to the studio on the bus and starts cookin on some beats. I was rollin up a dutch for me, Bas, Ced, JB, Ray and Ron to mook when I realized that Bas was gone. I finished it up, and then went to find him. I see him and Cole fucking around on a midi, talking bout melodies and shit. I asked Bas if he wanted to mook. He declined. That’s when I knew they were cooking a banger.
Here is the first of many… The Season produced by @JColeNC.
PS. We need to get the @NYKnicks to bump this in the arena while @CarmeloAnthony drops BUCKETS.
PPS. Super obese shout outs to our boy Alex Haldi on cooking this amazing art. I swear to GOD that Bas described this exact image for a project he was working on. Alex cooked this on his dolo. Parallel thinking is fucking trippy as fuck.
