The Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole album is not coming out in this month, disappointing a lot of fans. However, the rappers are making headlines for different reasons. As per the latest update, Kendrick Lamar will be performing at US President Barack Obama?s 55th birthday.
Jay Z and Beyonce will also perform at the event. The guest list includes Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Sarah Jessica Parker, Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Magic Johnson and Alonzo Mourning, according to Page Six.
Of course, it will be an important event for Kendrick Lamar, because of Obama?s fondness of him. Earlier he had confessed that he likes Kendrick?s music. Obama had also invited Kendrick to perform at the fourth of July concert at the White House.
Kendrick is facing a few issues related to copyright infringement. He was sued for copying music from the 1975 Bill Withers song ?Don?t You Want to Stay?. Kendrick has used Bill Withers song for his own track, ?I Do This?, without permission. Kendrick is also sued by another woman for the copyrights infringement. Sameerah Satterthwaite is asking $200m from Kendrick for illegally taking themes from a poem ?Revolutionary Women?.
Kendrick Lamar always shows support to his fellow rappers and singer. He will be seen in Mac Miller?s new album called as ?The Divine Feminine?. DJ Khaled?s new album will also have Kendrick?s song. ?Kendrick Lamar went so hard. His verse I feel like is gonna be one of the most-talked-about verses. I got this Big Sean verse. Aw man, it?s so crazy,? DJ Khaled said.
J.?Cole?s is also not focusing on the joint album. Since May, J. Cole has been hitting the headlines for different music concerts. He will be opening the 21-night Washington State Fair concert series on September 2. Bas will also perform alongside J. Cole.
A report had claimed that J. Cole is going to be retiring from his music career. J. Cole?s upcoming song for D J Khaled?s album had teased such a possibility. ?N***as murkin? each other, in murky water I try and swim / How the f*ck do I look when I brag to you about some diamond? / Said all I could say, now I play with thoughts of retirement,? the lyrics read.
However, J. Cole has not responded to such rumors. So, fans can still keep hope to see the Kendrick-Cole album.?
