"J. .Cole in one word - Amazing, I liked about 98% of sideline and BS and don't even get me started on his great mixtapes...I'm glad he didnt detour from the path he's been on over the years and I see people talking about how he should branch out and do this or that but there's an old saying: "If it ain't broke dont fix it". I'm not saying he's a living reincarnation of Mozart as a rapper (yet), but he damn sure is one of the best rappers alive right now that will go down in history as one of the greats if not one of the best...shit like future, young thug, migos, rae shurmmard (whatever), Bobby shurmda etc ain't gon be remembered for much cus lets be real they make "turn up" music, here today and gone tomorrow as history does repeat itself. But I won't sit here and flex like I don't listen to them, I'm just saying they aren't built to last" - a comment from youtube...and I concur.
J COLE tweeted a couple of hours ago... "2 important things for you to watch and listen to today. Angie interview http://dreamville.com/angie/ NPR interview http://dreamville.com/npr/". So that's exactly what I did. This blog post includes the audio and printed interview between J COLE and "Microphone Check" hosts Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Frannie Kelley on NPR, the day after his third and much-anticipated album, "2014 Forest Hills Drive", was released. It's a long interview, but the best interview Cole has ever did. A lot of folks in the Hip Hop community already consider Cole's new album an instant classic. And I tend to agree. I HIGHLY recommend everyone get thia album in a physical copy. It'll be a staple for years to come.
