“I got Cole as my one,” he said on a recent episode of his self-titled podcast. “I’m hoping that Kendrick’s next album could try to fix that for me. Drake is doing his Chuck E. Cheese shit. Good for him. That’s it now. Yeah, that’s it.”

Budden went on to share his excitement about Cole’s upcoming album The Fall Off, which has been teased as his last.

“Remember when Kendrick dropped the title of the last shit and we were trying to figure out what that meant?” he asked his co-hosts. “When I heard The Fall Off and with him hinting at maybe retirement, I thought that would be the marriage between concept and title.

“But after watching some of these vlog clips where he’s just in the restaurant talking to the older lady that doesn’t know who he is. Classic J. Cole. Perfect rollout shit again. This n-gga’s the best at this.”
