In addition to his solo work, the recent YMCMB signee chimed in on the Cole vs. Kanye CD battle set to take place on June 18, when both artists release their album.
HHW: Definitely want to catch up with you and all the dope things you’re working on.
RONE: I got alotta music coming. The mixtape is dropping in about a month and a half, then I got a record called “Savage” that’s gonna be on the Rich Gang album. It’s hot.
HHW: I think the people are going to be surprised to hear that track on Rich Gang.
RONE: I was surprised when I heard it was on the album. One day Baby called me into the studio, told me he wanted me to hear something. He let me hear the record with his verse on it, I was like “Ok that’s dope.” The next day, they called me and was like, “Baby wanna put that song on the album.” I was with that.
HHW: J. Cole and Kanye are both dropping new albums next week. If you had to go with one, who’d you cop and why?
RONE: I like both of them dudes, man. I’m interested in hearing where Kanye is going right now. I was just talking to Jazze Pha and he had some tracks that were really bangin’. Kanye heard ‘em and was like “I would tear those up if I wasn’t in this zone that I’m in.” So I’m kind of interested in hearing this different zone that he’s gonna be in. From what I’m hearing from other producers, he’s on some different stuff right now.
