Summary: Too real. I just want to get free.
About Artist:
J Cole is a younger-ish rapper who has a diehard following and has been very well established ever since he signed with Jay-Z and released his blockbuster debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story in 2011. He is known for his lyrical ability and the way he weaves stories and scenes with his words. Major Lazer is a DJ goup anchored by the one and only Diplo

About Song: This song is just single that dropped in 2012. I recently saw a friend post it online and gave it another listen. It feels as real as it ever felt. Too much truth in this track : (

Favorite Part:
Major Lazer does an awesome job on the track, I really love the hook. The track is really really great… but the best part is J. Cole’s lyrics. The truth in his words are so powerful.

Favorite Part:
Reminds me of the raw fcking power of just being in love.

DOWNLOAD MP3 JCole-ForbiddenFruitftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. Born Sinner was one of great albums this summer with Power Trip, Trouble, and Crooked Smile, Niggaz Know being some of the great songs on the albums.
About Artist: J. Cole was a freshman in the rap game not that many years ago but with his diehard following he continues to climb to new heights. J. Cole is known for his storytelling style and quality albums. Kendrick Lamar, new king of the west coast, stayed hot this summer with songs like How Many Drinks, Robin Thicke’s Give it 2 U, Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (with the Jay-Z feature) and his diss track Control (ft. Big Sean and Jay Electronica).
About Song: Crooked Smile (ft. TLC) should probably hold this spot since it was a Born Sinner track that got considerable airplay but I just like this song was better. Forbidden Fruit is the third single off of Born Sinner but we’ll see how successful it is.

Favorite Part:
The intro with Kendrick singing “oh no” at 0:09.

The bass line throughout the song.

The adam and eve apple concept.

DOWNLOAD MP3 JCole-Trouble.mp3
Summary: J. Cole at his best
About Artist: J. Cole  is about 4 years in as a mainstage artist after being the first artist to sign to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. He has a large hardcore following and this song might show why. He’s got the lyrical chops and can really tell a raw story in his songs.
About Song: This song is off of J. Cole’s sophomore album Born Sinner and I can’t for the life of me understand why it’s not a single yet.
Favorite Part: Yes, I’m a sucker for gospel singing in hip hop but I also love J. Cole’s story telling and his delivery in lines like
“But I’m back on track, jumpshot wasn’t that good
Couldn’t sell crack but I rap good” (2:31)
I can’t lie though the woman singing in the background around 2:46, and the choral chorus and Especially that outro I do love.
