NBA YoungBoy is addressing rumors that he skipped out on a music session with J. Cole. This week, during a conversation on Clubhouse, the “Bandit” emcee opened up about multiple topics pertaining to his career, including reports that he flaked on Cole, who reportedly waited eight hours for him to show up to the studio.

“They lied and said I stood J. Cole up,” he said, rejecting claims that his absence was due to a lack of interest. “They lied, they said I ain’t wanna go in the studio with him. That wasn’t even the case.” Instead, he missed the session because he was not in the right frame of mind.

“I was going through something so what the fuck I’ma go in this man’s studio session for a meet-up with him, knowing that I ain’t in a mode to talk or just to be in the mode to fuck around,” explained NBA Youngboy. “What the fuck I’ma go around this man if I know I ain’t in a mood to talk to nobody or sit there, or even be around somebody.” Though his status as a no-show eventually made headlines, the Baton Rouge rapper admitted that he and Cole never discussed the missed collaboration. “That man don’t give a fuck about this shit,” he continued.

Though it’s possible for Cole and NBA YoungBoy to work together in the near future, time for both rappers is winding down. The North Carolina star has implied that he will soon retire; NBA also shared his desire to quit music. “I lost love for music and it brings too many problems,” he explained during the Clubhouse conversation. “I[‘ve] been waiting to stop making music for about one and a half years.”

Before then, however, the rapper, who recently scored his first Grammy nomination, will be dropping his new From the Bayou project with Birdman on Friday (Dec. 3).
