"'Alright let’s do it right now, what’s up where the mic at?'"

Apparently, if you want a J. Cole feature, all you have to do is be in proximity to the rapper. 

In a new interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 on Apple Music, Ty Dolla $ign explained that it was pure happenstance that brought him and Cole together for his new single, "Purple Emoji."

"I was at this studio called Jungle City in New York working on Yandhi with Kanye. I just took over the top room I had a whole separate room he had the bottom floors," Ty began. "And then just turns out Cole was in the room right next to me. When I saw him I was like, 'Bro I got something to play you,' and he’s like, 'I got something to play you,' so I went to his studio and heard everything he was working on."

He continued: "Then I’m like, 'Yo I just did this one I thought would be crazy for both of us.' So he came in my room I played it for him immediately and he did his verse in five minutes. Shout out to Cole for just being in the room with me like that. It’s not often you can meet an artist that prolific, that big in the game that will just like 'Alright let’s do it right now, what’s up where the mic at?'"  

This is not the first time Cole just jumped on a track because he was literally besides an artist he respected. In 2018, we got trap J. Cole on Moneybagg Yo's "Say Na." 

Though Cole is a triple-A artist, it's endearing to hear that securing a feature with him is so simple. This is just one of the many ways Cole remains so damn regular

As it stands, though, that regularness is why we love him.
