Natural in hip hop, a friendly rivalry is brewing between the two rising stars. Because of his Young Money connection, Drake has become the early winner of the competition. Despite a friendly rivalry in place between the two rappers, they are actually friends.
Often, the two rappers are asked about each other and this time was Drake's turn. Drake said that he felt that J. Cole could be the next Nas. Ironically, Drake said that his album is inspired by Illmatic. But, J. Cole recently responded to Drake's comment.
While J. Cole admitted that he was flattered by the comments that Drake made, he said that it is a little too early in the game for that type of comparison. J. Cole said that it could come in time, but right now it is too soon for anyone to create any comparisons between him and Nas.
