I just read an article on HNHH about why a Cole and Kdot collab album wouldn't work. Basically Cole and Kendrick aren't on the same level.
"KDot is Langston Hughes, Cole is Dr. Seuss. And that's not a knock on Cole. Born Sinner and Forest Hills 2014 are both platinum records for very good reason. Plus Dr. Seuss is a damn legend. But to place genius simplicity with sprawling rap virtuosity is a little brutal"
I don't see it that way.
Everything he said was pretty much on point. If we're talking commercial success and lyrical dexterity, he's definitely one of the best, if not THE best of his time.
