THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE CULTURE OF HIP HOP NEEDED. HE ISN’T DISSING ANYONE HE IS JUST LETTING HIS BOYS (WHOM HE THINKS ARE ON THE SAME GREAT CALIBER AS HE IS LYRICALLY) THAT HE IS COMING FOR THAT #1 SPOT.

IF HE AIN’T TRYING TO BE GREAT AT WHAT HE DOES, THEN WHAT THE FAAK HE IN THE RAP GAME FOR? IT’S A COMPETITION, HIP HOP IS A WAY OF LIFE & HE IS JUST LETTING MFKRS KNOW…HE COMING FOR THAT THRONE!

BIG SEAN KILLED HIS VERSE TOO, I LOVE THAT HE DIDN’T TWEAK KENDRICK’S VERSE IN ANYWAY. HE WAS SPEAKING ON IT THIS MORNING, ON BIG BOY’S RADIO SHOW ON POWER 106. HE SAID HE COULDN’T HOLD ON TO THIS HEAT & IT DIDN’T MAKE HIS ALBUM DUE TO RECORD LABEL POLITICS. HE ALONG WITH WALE SAID HE WOULD HAVE BEEN OFFENDED IF HE WASN’T NAMED!

ALL I KNOW IS KENDRICK LAMAR IS REPRESENTING FOR LOS ANGELES, HANDS DOWN!

ALBUM REVIEW: J Cole “Born Sinner”

NOW this album is a banger…my opinion might be a tab bit bias because I am definitely a fan of J Cole. However, on some real hip hop head ish…he came correct on this album. One of my favorite songs off the album outside of “Power Trip”, “Rich Niggaz”, “Land of Snakes”, “Let Nas Down” (BANGER), is “Crooked Smile” FT. TLC.

The album is set to drop on June 25th, the artwork & track list have been released (see below). Also on the deluxe version there will be bonus tracks off “Truly Yours 3″, which are “Miss America”, “New York Times”, Is She Gon Pop”, & “Sparks Will Fly”.

J. Cole has a huge appetite when it comes to his career. Although he’s got a platinum single, a gold album and a Grammy nomination for best new artist, the protege of Jay-Z says he wants more. (Feb. 7)

XXL reports — Hours after releasing a diss track aimed at J. Cole, Canibus is apologizing.

“I seen thousands and thousands of comments about this J.Cole track and all of the negativity it’s stirring up,” said Canibus in a video apology that hit the net today (December 12). “After 48 hours of it, I feel confident enough to say that it’s unanimous; hip-hop has spoken up, loud and clear, it’s a Cole World right now and you’re a reigning champ J. [Cole]. I take full responsibility for my actions and I apologize for stepping over the line.

“It comes off as tacky and unsophisticated and it’s just not G,” he continued. “I love hip-hop too much to further justify my selfish behavior. I made this video in an effort to turn around and man up for my mistake.”

The apology comes after Cannibus released a track called, “J. Clone” aimed at Cole over the weekend. Apparently, Canibus took offense to a series of Cole interviews in which J. Cole was actually saying he was a big fan of Canibus. ‘Bus took the accolades as if Cole was insinuating Canibus didn’t matter to hip-hop anymore. But, he’s since had a change of heart.

You said you were a fan of mine at one time, you bigged me up on many occasions, you don’t owe me nothing Cole,” Canibus rounded out the video saying. “I was out of line for what I did and I’m sorry for creating a fiasco at a time when hip-hop really needs someone like you to look up to. You got my support. I just hope the hip-hop community can get pass this quickly and go back to what satisfies them and makes them happy. I’m not a hater I just went too far and I hope hip-hop can forgive me for my foolishness. I’m going to go sit my old ass down somewhere now. Happy Holidays….It’s a Cole World, kid.”Jakinder Singh

J. Cole Speaks On Kanye West, Feels He’s Helped Kendrick Lamar & Big K.R.I.T.

Hip Hop DX reports — Cole talks about Kanye West, a lack of radio play and why he was playing the game with “Work Out.”

Recently, J. Cole spoke about his admiration for Kanye West, his lack of radio play and why he felt the need to make a song like “Work Out.” In the interview with Karmaloop, Cole also said he feels he has helped the careers of Kendrick Lamar and Big K.R.I.T. by putting out his album this year.

When told that his career is reminiscent of Kanye West’s rise, Cole explained that he hopes it’s true.

“If it feels like that, then that’s great. I would love to be as successful as he has been, putting out hits and making hits consistently that still reprersent him. All his hits, you would never look at him like, ‘Aw, why you make that?’ It all felt like Kanye West, which is dope.” 

He also shed light on a lack of radio air play, saying some markets treat him like a star while others have ignored his songs.

“Those things just didn’t catch up nationally. Now, ‘Work Out’ is going. ‘Work Out’ will go because it’s doing its thing on radio every day. “Can’t Get Enough” is gonna go. “Nobody’s Perfect” is gonna go. But it’s just, the work that I put in on the ground level was faster than radio catching on. You got some stations like in Tampa, L.A., New York, some markets where I’m a superstar. They play my songs 35, 40 times a day or whatever. Then you have some markets that are barely playing it.”

He also acknowledged that he has felt pressure to succeed through radio, pressure that helped him make “Work Out.”

“At one point, yeah. That’s how you get a song like ‘Work Out.’ I went to radio stations and seen how radio stations work…I went and learned all these things. That’s how I made a record like ‘Work Out.’ I went, ‘Okay, I can play that game. I’ll give you a song full of hooks,’ the catchy shit that I knew would work on radio. That’s me playing the game.”

Cole also went on to note that he feels his album has changed the game.

“We created a new mold, a new formula. Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T. now, they don’t necessarily have to feel the pressure that I felt like, ‘Where’s the big single?’ I was the sacrificial lamb of that. That’s why my album wasn’t coming out, because of the label waiting on a huge single.”
