New Music: J. Cole – ‘Cole Summer’

Cole Summer

As he nears completion on his sophomore album, 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.”

Drizzy shared his thoughts on the introspective track. “COLE SUMMER!!! Haaaaa. That’s my brother man. Bars too real. Too ill.”

Cole is putting the finishing touches on Born Sinner before it drops on June 25. “Few Days to finish the album then off to Mixing. Here’s some thoughts. Cole Summer,” he wrote.

    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

    If J Cole dosn’t win a grammy this year there is no hope for hip hop music

    @Freeryder Apparel, Just remember Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Pusha and Wale are all coming out this year

    Dan Reply:

    @iller, Cole’s album will surely be better than Wale’s & Pusha’s. As for Em, Jay, and Kanye, if they release their albums after September 1, which it’s looking like at this pace, then Cole only has Kendrick & Drake as competition for the 2014 Grammys. Still a damn loaded category though.

    @Breeangel, Cole is the best but sadly he remains very underrated. These basic niggas gonna learn with Born Sinner, though.
