Support Good Music And Great Talent

So those of you who know me realize that it is very hard to please me music wise, especially in the genre of hip-hop. I'm so done with the whole fake thug, I sell 500 pounds of coke & the "I'll kill your mother if you look at me the wrong way" type of rapper. That's why artist such as Drake, Wale and Kid Cudi are such a sigh of relief for me. But it seems that there's a new young man hitting the hip-hop scene as well. Mr. J Cole a North Carolina native signed to RocNation. He attended St.John's University on an academic scholarship, choosing that school so that he could be in the heart of the music industry: New York City. After graduating from St. Johns everything fell into place for J.Cole and you can even hear him featured on Jay-Z's newest album The Blueprint 3. I've downloaded his latest mixtape "The Warm Up" and I absolutely love it! I haven't felt this way about an artist in a long time and truth be told he's slowly winning over my heart. Not only can he write but he can freestlye as well. I see big things happening for J.Cole and I wish him the greatest success.

Take A Listen =)
