The American rapper J. Cole allegedly informed Burna Boy during a studio session that he is on par with the late hip-hop legend 2Pac.
Speaking on a recent episode of the Elliott Wilson-hosted Rap Radar Podcast, Burna Boy said;
“I don’t really know the dynamics behind how everything happened, but somehow I end up in the studio with J. Cole and a bunch of basketball players tall as hell. Before [recording] any music, we’re all just talking about real stuff, about life and everything.
For me, I don’t really like to have conversations with people that don’t live with me. You know, I don’t have long conversations like that. So, I found myself just going off.
And before we start [recording], he (J. Cole] just goes, ‘Bro, this n*gga is Tupac. And then I looked around to see who he was talking about. It’s me he’s talking about. He’s like, this n*gga is like Tupac reincarnated in Africa.”
