Producer Bvtman released the rapper’s brand-new song, “Procrastination (Broke),” along with a text message explaining its creation, on Wednesday night. The sender, who is likely Cole, acknowledges that the music was never intended for public release but chose to make it available as a “thank you” to Bvtman and “every producer out there cooking up and sharing their work with the world.”


According to the message, Cole was having trouble getting motivated one day and simply decided to search “J. Cole type beat” on YouTube. The artist Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Nipsey Hussle, Kanye West, 21 Savage, Drake, and other musicians are all honored in a number of beats on Bvtman’s channel. Cole was in a funk until he heard the “Procrastination” beat, at which point he started writing.


“This song should live on your channel and serve as a thank you to you and every producer out there cooking up and sharing their work with the world. It’s a million artists out there right now just like me, hungry and searching every day for something to spark a word, a melody, a hook, a verse, a punchline, a way to vent, or a way to CUT THROUGH.

On a day when I couldn’t find much motivation, I was looking for anything to inspire me. Out of curiosity, I typed in ‘J. Cole type beat’ into YouTube. Yours was the first I saw. I pressed play, focused, and wrote this.

This is some shit that would normally stay in the vault, but I don’t want to hold onto the music like that no more. This is for you and whoever else need to hear it. God bless bro and keep doing what you do!”
