He just ended performing "Villematic," a cover of Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy hit "Devil in a New Dress." Cole covered the rhythm on his mixtape Friday Night Lights, which was released in 2010. Despite favorable reviews and fan support, the project has yet to be released on streaming services.
“Shout out to Kanye West,” Cole stated when the song concluded on stage. “Please clear the sample for me, my brother. I appreciate it.”
The request implies that Cole may be attempting to bring Friday Night Lights to streaming services in the near future. Cole wrote on Instagram in November 2020, on the 10-year anniversary of the mixtape, “My dream is to one day have this on DSP’s where it belongs.”
“Justifying that half ass shit he dropped, we always buy it/ When he tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately/ It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately/ There was a time when this n***a was my hero, maybe/ That’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take.”
