"I Can't Get Enough of What You Got, Good God, You Hit the Spot"

I'd imagine September 27th is going to be a big day for @JColeNC with the release of his debut studio album Cole World - The Sideline Story. When it comes to artists in Hip Hop, there aren't many more artists that I have more respect for talent wise. I say that because you're more likely to find a Surge or a Crystal Pepsi these days than an artist who produces, writes and delivers his material on a studio album. I don't know J Cole from the next man, but listening to interviews and tracks paint a clear picture to me of someone who is determined hell or high water to make the world familiar with his underdog story about how he did it his own way by blazing his own trail.

I'll admit though, I wasn't really a big fan of Work Out. To me it felt like a misfire kinda like @liltunchi's How To Love. Lead single aside, I'm still excited as hell to see what Cole is capable of putting together with the likes of Danja, @The_Real_BKidd and No I.D.. If No I.D. can add as much to Cole's album as he did @bigsean's then it should have no problem living up to the lofty expectations that the year+ of anticipation has created.

The new one below feat @treysongz is they type of unique sound I've learned to look forward to from J Cole. The beat is bouncy, almost Timbaland-esque and it provides a head nod worthy backdrop for three well crafted verses. The hook doesn't really sound like Songz Yuuuup!, but it's a sufficient placeholder that bridges the gap between the meat of the track. This will presumably be on Cole World and will hopefully set the standard for what to expect because it's an easy listen that comes off as feel good track the more you listen to it.

60 days til it drops, keep it locked, much more to come...#ColeWorld
