The hip-hop star sits in front of a keyboard and a Macbook Pro slicing together beats and melodies. But it’s where he’s doing it that’s getting all kinds of attention. J. Cole isn’t in a studio, he’s on his tour bus.

After he hits upon the right sound, he gets incredibly excited. “That’s what we was waiting for,” he mutters under his breath before calling for Ron Gilmore to come help him. Gilmore is Dreamville Records’ in-house producer, and he’s worked with J.Cole in the past. He just happened to be on the bus that day. Gilmore takes what J. Cole has come up with and adds down extra keys to flesh it out a bit.
