This interlude is the sound of J. Cole being bombarded by the paparazzi. This goes to show exactly how large of a figure he’s grown to be in the music word, thus leading most uninformed people to suggest he’s tied to the Illuminati.
The paparazzi (unintentionally) references his song “Crooked Smile,” found later on the album, when he says “lemme see that crooked smile”.
It also has the sound of him running into one of his old bitches at the Oscars. While she’s giving him a hug, Cole is yelling at the paparazzi, “Oh, it’s a friend hug! Friend hug! Keep it friendly, we friends!” so that no one misinterprets the hug as something else. He’s poking humor at the situation.
