Bally's Collaboration With J. Cole

The rapper, songwriter and producer Jermaine Lamarr Cole (above, left), 30, who is better known as J. Cole, spoke with Pulse about his collaboration with the Swiss luxury brand Bally for its fall 2015 collection.

Why did you decide to work with Bally’s head designer, Pablo Coppola, on a hiking boot and a backpack specifically?

As I’m getting older, I’m learning more about what my true style actually is. Becoming more confident in what I like. And I love simplicity and comfort. Comfort is king. I feel at home in a pair of comfortable boots, and I always have a backpack with me. I keep my life in my backpack. Current books I’m reading, my notebook with all my rhymes written inside and my laptop that holds all the music I’m working on.

For the introduction you traveled to Jamaica to film a video with Bally. How was the experience?

While I was visiting the Bally office in London, I noticed a black-and-white picture of Bob Marley wearing a pair of Bally boots. I was impressed with the heritage of the company and how many people and places they’ve touched that I had no clue about. Jamaica was already one of my favorite places to spend time, but filming there was a way to pay homage both to Bob and to the brand’s legacy.

  • Burundi
  • Saul Williams (feat. Emily Kokal)
  • MartyrLoserKing

Poet/performer/muisician Saul Williams has a new album called MartyrLoserKing coming out in July via FADER Label. It includes the single “Burundi” which features Warpaint’s Emily Kokal. The track, and the album as a whole, was produced by Justin Warfield.

Williams said of the song:

“Burundi is one of the 1st songs I recorded for MartyrLoserKing. I initially recorded it in Paris after returning from a month of travel thru Senegal, Swaziland & South Africa. I focused on Burundi as I was studying the coltan trade & black market networks. Also because of the role of the drum/tambour in Burundi & how those drums became the backbeat for new wave… Adam Ant etc. I’m a huge Warpaint fan. Justin [Warfield] mentioned that he knew Em when I was playing him my demoes and I asked him to invite her to the studio. From there, she just sang along”.
