TDE President Punch Teases Rumored Joint Project Between Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole

For many years there has been talk about a mythical collaborative album from the likes of Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. They have been teasing the project ever since their song together called “Forbidden Fruit” and now the speculation has arisen once again. 

This time we can thank TDE’s Punch for bringing up the long-awaited project that we don’t even know exists. On the eve of J. Cole’s new, just announced album, Punch took to Instagram sharing a picture of a fruit with the caption “4bidden” hinting at the album from Kendrick and J. Cole we’ve been waiting for. The last time rumors about this collab album were swirling was back in November 2015 when Kendrick and Cole both shared freestyles over each other’s instrumentals at the same time. It’s crazy that years later TDE is still teasing fans about the potential project without confirming or denying its existence. While Punch might just be fucking with us all, there might be something here and we’ll just have to wait and see.

Kendrick Lamar is no stranger to winning awards. From the Grammys to music video awards, the 30-year-old has accomplished a lot in his career and has just hit another milestone. Kendrick Lamar just became the first-ever non jazz or classical music artist to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his album DAMN

“[DAMN. is] a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life.” - The Pulitzer Board 

Kendrick has always been known for breaking barriers and has made a big step for hip-hop by being the first rapper to receive the award. Congrats Kendrick! 

Hear Kendrick Lamar Over Classic Dr. Dre Beats On New Tape "The DAMN. Chronic"

The Damn Chronic

Kendrick Lamar’s career has been closely tied to Dr. Dre… but we’ve yet to hear Kendrick go in over some classic-style, G Funk Dre beats. For those of you hoping this would happen one day… this might be the closest we’ll come it as some legend named DJ Critical Hype stepped up to the plate putting Kendrick acapellas over classic Dr. Dre beats and it works so well. It's fittingly called The DAMN. Chronic.

The same DJ who put this together actually did a similar tape a couple years back putting Chance The Rapper over classic Kanye beats. The whole thing is amazing as he takes some well-known verses and beats from the two legends but also digs in the crates to find more obscure verses as well as beats. Shout out to Pigeons & Planes for digging this up and doing an interview with DJ Critical Hype you can read here for more info. Enjoy!
