J.Cole Thanks Paula Abdul for “Straight Up” Sample Clearance

Rap-Up caught up with J.Cole on the set of his “Work Out” video and asked about the trying process he went trough to clear all the samples for his new single “Work Out.” He says it was especially difficult getting in touch with Paula Abdul’s people but ultimately thanked her for finally approving his record.


  1. Actually Paula Abdul has no say over her songs, its her songwriters/producers who have control of the songs.

  2. Your right, but if you watch the video he still wanted to thank her.
