Ever since seeing him kill his set at Wireless, I’ve been listening to J. Cole non-stop. I must know his verse on “A Star is Born” better than he does by now. In that verse he introduces himself to the world, renegades a living legend and delivers one of my favourite punchlines ever. All in 36 seconds. Woah.
A lot of rappers get hype that isn’t justified by their talent. This dude isn’t one of those guys. I can’t wait for his album to come out, Semtex saying it’s like a cross between Illmatic and College Dropout turned my patented excite-meter up to 88mph.
This is a new song that might be on the album. Guess what? It’s awesome. Shocking.
