j. cole and muve music hook up for commentary about jermaine’s debut, and in episode one, he covers lead singles “in the morning” and “can’t get enough.” to download the entire commentary album, stay tuned for more info from muve music.

i’m assuming more episodes are on the way.


album review: j. cole – cole world: the sideline story (2011)

Yeah, I know. I said this would be the third review last week, but I just didn’t get around to it. Been a huge J. Cole fan, so it’s always nice to see artists you’ve been into for years finally put together and release their debut LP. Not to mention, sell 217,000 copies of it.

Hit the jump for the review and don’t sleep on this record. Just don’t.

just got done seeing cole last night and he brought out bun b and trae the truth to stand by while he performed this song, mainly due to the pimp c/htown/bun b line in the 2nd verse. that being said, this caribbean-tinged feel goodery of a track is commercial as hell, but should be getting cole some nice spots on that top 40 radio in your near future.


j. cole – cole world: the sideline story [artwork + tracklisting] (2011)

and for this week’s installment of “any given sunday,” cole hopped on twitter and announced the tracklisting to his album, which is merely one month away. looks great, if you ask me. as far as him rehashing some of the old songs, i think “lights please” is a quintessential cole track, and “in the morning” is commercially a good choice. also, looks like he finally got that jay-z verse, and the secret feature was missy f’n elliot. well played.

j. cole – cole world: the sideline story [artwork] (2011)

the main reason i’m posting this is to a. make fun of it because it’s a real throwback kind of corny. and b. because this is the fourth installment of cole’s any given sunday movement.

sept 27 can’t come soon enough. oh and after the jump, you can catch a teaser clip featuring a new song. swag.

i feel like i’m in the 90s when i’m watching this music video. it’s not just the paula abdul interpolation either. now is it a bad or a good thing? it’s definitely both; but i’m glad to see j. cole get another budget for a music video of a track that’s definitely grown on me since i was underwhelmed by it initially. that being said, let’s get this album fast tracked, shall we?


j. cole – can’t get enough [f. trey songz] (2011)

while i’m a huge fan of the production on this track, i’m not too enthusiastic about the fact that his next release from cole world: the sideline story is another song for the ladies. cole does his thing regardless, and houston appreciates the nod.
