Saweetie, fresh off taking over Clark Atlanta University for Apple Music’s special Rap Life Live event, is the latest Complex digital cover star.

Tucked into the accompanying feature interview by Complex’s Deputy Style Editor Aria Hughes is a mention of J. Cole, who recently dropped off his new The Off-Season project. Fans, of course, will note that Saweetie—as seen in the video below—once rapped for Cole prior to becoming a household name herself. She’s also been a longtime admirer of Cole’s work.

Asked if she would be interested in working with Cole now, Saweetie offered an answer that should intrigue fans of both artists.

“On production, yes,” Saweetie said.

Elsewhere in the cover story feature, boasting photography by Alexandra Gavillet, the Pretty Bitch Music artist also went deep on on the writing process behind “Icy Girl” and her future beauty and fashion line plans. Read the full interview here.

Also on Monday, Saweetie was the artist to be featured on Complex’s GOAT Talk, a series where guests are tasked with naming their picks for the greatest-of-all-timers in various categories. Around the 6:49 mark in the video below, Saweetie is asked to give her choice for the greatest Cole song.

“I think the greatest J. Cole song of all time—at least, a song that really just makes me feel something—is ‘Cost Me a Lot,’” she said. “And that was a mixtape song. The mainstream people don’t know too much about that.”
