Man, J.Cole changed my whole perception of Hip Hop forever. Before I heard his music, I listened to irrelevant rappers all the time. I listen to more thought-provoking and emotional songs now after hearing him. When I first heard The Warm Up in my freshman year of high school, my mind was blown. I had never before heard a rapper spit things I could relate to and understand, I barely gave any other artist attention on my ipod lol. I was such a J.Cole Stan lol. I started downloading anything with this dudes name on it and even went back to listen to his first mixtape. But anyway here are my favorites in order:
- The Warm Up (2009)
- Friday Night Lights (2010)
- Cole World: Sideline Story (2011)
- The Come Up (2007)
The Warm Up will always be my favorite project from Cole because it was my first listen from him and I doubt anything he creates will ever bring about that same feeling. All his other projects excluding The Come Up didn’t include completely new tracks so it wasn’t the same but they ALL had some major tracks and that’s why he is one of my favorite rappers ever.
