In a recent podcast of Lil Yachty‘s A Safe Place podcast, J. Cole stopped by to discuss his collaborative process. At one point in the interview Yachty asked J. Cole how much he charges for a features.
To much of his fans’ surprise, Cole confirmed that he does features for free, “Yo, bro, it’s just a bar, bro. Like, a lot of my bars be really on point but that’s just a flex. I’m not gonna charge a ni**a $2,000 a word. I don’t even charge ni**a for the verse, I’m doing this shit because I’m inspired to do it.” Cole’s comments come shortly before Soulja Boy revealed that he charges $1 million USD for a feature. In a livestream Soulja Boy said, “If you want a verse, it’s gon’ cost you a M. You want a show, it’s gon’ cost you $100k.”
Elsewhere in the interview with Yachty, J. Cole also talked about getting his first No. 1 track on the Billboard Hot 100 with his feature on Drake’s “First Person Shooter.” The rapper called it a bittersweet moment, “If it would’ve went No. 2 it wouldn’t have mattered. I wouldn’t have felt no way. If the other song would’ve went No. 1, it’s like, bruh, I’m cool. If that other song would’ve gone No. 1, ni**a, I’m still grateful I’m a part of it.” Watch the full interview below.
