Burna Boy, an Afrobeats musician, has claimed that American rapper J.Cole told him that he is on the same level as late hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur.
Recall that J. Cole was featured on ‘Thanks’, in Burna Boy’s seventh studio album, ‘I Told Them…’ which was released last week.
Speaking during a recent interview, Burna Boy claimed that J.Cole said he is like Tupac reincarnated in Africa.
The Grammy Award winner stated this while appearing as a guest on the latest episode of the Rap Radar Podcast hosted by Elliott Wilson.
He said, “I don’t really know the dynamics behind how everything happened, but somehow I end up in the studio with J. Cole and a bunch of basketball players tall as hell. Before [recording] any music, we’re all just talking about real stuff, about life and everything.
“For me, I don’t really like to have conversations with people that don’t live with me. You know, I don’t have long conversations like that. So, I found myself just going off.
“And before we start [recording], he [J. Cole] just goes, ‘Bro, this ngga is Tupac. And then I looked around to see who he’s talking about. It’s me he’s talking about. He’s like, this ngga is like Tupac reincarnated in Africa.”
