New Songs and Album from J. Cole
J. Cole wants to end 2016 with a bang.
After releasing his 40-minute documentary, “Eyez”, a Tidal exclusive, one of the surprises was that the documentary features upcoming tracks from his fourth studio album, 4 Your Eyez Only.
And this Album will be released this 9th of December, yes… This friday.
He already released 2 tracks “False Prophets” and “Everybody dies”, in the first track, as always, Cole is very honest and speaks his mind and this time he appears to be calling out to some of the best rappers in the game including Kanye West, Drake, and Wale. (No name checking anyone, but his lyrics and words are too clear)
The 31-year-old North Carolina lyrics say:
1.- Ego in charge of every move, he’s a star/And we can’t look away/Due to the days that he caught our hearts/He’s fallin’ apart, but we deny it/Justifying that half-ass sh*t he dropped, we always buy it/When he tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately/It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately/There was a time when this n***a was my hero, maybe that’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take/’Cause I believed him when he said his sh*t was purer and he/The type of n***a swear he real but all around him’s fake/The women, the d**k riders, you know, the yes men/Nobody with the balls to say somethin’ to contest him/So he grows out of control/Into the person that he truly was all along, it’s startin’ to show/Damn, wonder what happened
This appear to be for Kanye.
2.-Maybe it’s my fault for idolizing n***as based off the words they be rapping / Come to find out these n***as don’t even write they sh*t / Hear some new style bubbling up then they bite that sh*t. And I know he so bitter he can’t see his own blessings/Goddamn, n***a, you too blind to see you got fans, n***a/ And a platform to make a classic rap song/ To change a n***a life, but you too anxious living’ life/Always worried ‘bout the critics who ain’t ever f**kin’ did it/I write what’s in my heart, don’t give a f**k who f**kin’ with it/ But in a sense I can relate, the need to be great/ Turns into an obsession keeps a n***a up late.
This part seems to be talking about Drake.
3.- I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad/He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that’s been had/ By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin’/ Talkin’ ’bout, n****as don’t f**k with him, the sh*t is depressin’/ And I know he so bitter he can’t see his own blessings/ Goddamn, n***a, you too blind to see you got fans, n***a/ And a platform to make a classic rap song/ To change a n***a’s life, but you too anxious livin’ life/ Always worried ’bout the critics who ain’t ever f**kin’ did it
And this part looks like advice for his friend Wale.
He also disses Lil Yatchy:
“a bunch of words and they ain’t saying sh*t I hate these rappers, especially the amateur 8 week rappers, “Lil” whatever.”
It´s to soon to know, but it looks like this album it´s going to make so much noise… Can´t wait for it.
Gotta sayit, i´m glad Cole is back.
Quote to remember: “When he tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately, It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately, there was a time when this n***a was my hero”
Rate 1/10 “False Prophets” : 9
