New Music: J. Cole “Cole Summer”

j-cole-cole-summer

J. Cole takes a break from recording to remind us that he’s coming with heat this summer.  On the soulful “Cole Summer,” the self-proclaimed “cheap ass ni**a” raps about throwing thousands in the strip club with Drake (“The difference is I’m throwing 4, he throwing 50”), Jay-Z’s orders to record with Stargate (“That shit was like detention now”), and dreams of Tia and Tamera Mowry.

The cover is a reference to his mother, who used to work at the post office.  “I told her quit her job, but hold your horses/ If my next album flop, it’s back to the post office, both of us,” he raps over a sample of Lauryn Hill’s “Nothing Even Matters.” He’s so refreshing. his honesty, kendrick’s flow, and kanye’s genius are the only things that keep me holding on to hip hop in this era…
