Cordae, Anderson .Paak and J. Cole might give us more than “Two Tens.” While visiting Apple Music 1’s The Zane Lowe Show, the Raleigh native discussed his new single with .Paak, saying that “Two Tens” was one of 180 songs he recorded last year.
“I made a lot of songs last year. I think last year I recorded literally 180 songs, which I know some artists record like a thousand songs,” Cordae said. “But it feels like that’s the most songs I recorded in the year, for sure. And last year it was also the most touring I did. So I’m proud of myself for still recording 180 songs.”
The From A Birds Eye View emcee then acknowledged his friendship with .Paak, mentioning that the two recorded a “mixtape full” of songs produced by J. Cole, who also produced “Two Tens.”
“You know what’s funny, we literally got a mix tape full of joints with me and Pac,” Cordae said. “Yeah. We literally got a mix tape full of joints of me and Pac on… Well we got an EP full of joints with me, Pac, and Cole Beats.”
He added, “You know what, it’s because this is really my friend…He’s really like my real friend, like my brother. And real, and I don’t like… Everybody be, other artists be like, oh that’s my brother, or, oh that’s my man. And saying that shit just to sound cool. I don’t really have too many friends, to be honest. He’s one of my real life genuine friends. You know what I’m saying? And so I say that to say, that’s where it comes from, bro.”
Cordae and .Paak first linked up for “RNP” from the former’s 2019 debut album The Lost Boy.
