Jermaine Lamarr Cole, American rapper and songwriter better known as J. Cole, has announced he is done with features.
The ‘KOD’ rapper took to his Twitter page on Friday to make the announcement in a tweet he posted hours after the release of ‘Family and Loyalty,’ a Gang Starr’s comeback record in which he played a huge role.
The ‘Middle Child’ rhymer said he was honored to be featured on the track but has to bow out of the features game.
“This is the last feature you’ll hear from me. Thank you to everybody I got to work with during this run,” he wrote.
This a honor to be on this song. NEW Gang Starr 🤯🤯🤯🤯 💎💎💎💎

The Grammy-nominated rapper, who has had an impressive run over the past year, still has a lot on his sleeves between his solo career and the Dreamville Records imprint.
Cole, during an interview with GQ earlier this year, shed light on his decision to work with other artists.
“I’ve reached a point in my life, where I’m like, ‘How long am I gonna be doing this for?’” he said.
“I’m starting to realize like, oh shit–let’s say I stopped this year. I would feel like I missed out on certain experiences, you know? Working with certain artists, being more collaborative, making more friends out of peers, making certain memories that I feel like if I don’t, I’m gonna regret it one day.”
In 2018, the Fayetteville rapper had debuted a live performance of songs from KOD for the first time ever on Nigerian soil.
