J. Cole gave an intimate performance at Universal Studios Hollywood for “Big Boy’s Backstage Breakfast” on Power 106. The Roc Nation MC, who is currently playing $1 shows on his “Dollar & a Dream” tour, delivered old and new material including “Lights Please,” “Nobody’s Perfect,” “Can’t Get Enough,” “Power Trip,” and his latest single “Crooked Smile.”

His sophomore album Born Sinner will compete with Kanye West’s Yeezus on June 18. “It was more of a competitive move,” said Cole. “I’m a fan so I know how huge he is, and I’m not just battling Kanye West. I’m battling Kim Kardashian, the Yeezys, the baby. I realize that, I understand that, but the competitive side of me is like, ‘Yo, I’m bringing something to the table too, and check me out the same day.'”

He also discussed his first job, his crush on Alicia Keys, and getting the cold shoulder from Jay-Z.
