New Music: J. Cole – ‘Grew Up Fast’

Grew Up Fast

To celebrate the milestone of reaching 2 million Twitter followers, J. Cole releases a new song for his fans called “Grew Up Fast.” The soulful offering, produced by Canei Finch, samples former Temptation David Ruffin’s 1969 record “The Double Cross.”

“It’s only right I brought back the soul/ Ya’ll got way too electro, damn near techno/ Halfway homo, way too metro,” raps the Grammy-nominated MC.

    It’s not his best, but at least he’s coming back with that classic JCole flow instead of that watered down Nice Watch stuff. Just a warm up for his second album…

    He should of dropped 8 bars for them corny ass MTV Hottest MC panel judges. I mean in what world did Big Sean or Meek Mill have a better year than J Cole, or even Wale. I mess with Wale, but J Cole outsold all three of those dudes.

    occupation say Rapper…..

    Applause …..


  43. Puma

    Bring it the OLD Hip/Hop back!!! COLE WORLD!!! Round of Applause


  44. Bryanna Roy

    I think this is one of the best songs that Cole has dropped in a while. The people that don’t like his rapping mainly don’t like it because they don’t listen to the lyrics close enough… because everyone has been through the rough times and he just happens to rap about them and how he overcame his troubles. His rapping style is different from Lil Wayne’s and Drake’s,but different doesn’t always mean bad.
    -Cole’s Number 1 fan :)
    Seeing him on MARCH 16th!! Super excited <333
