What can I say about J Cole that you don't know already? Well I've watched him grow from a normal rapper touring with Black Star and De La Soul. To a conscious Lyricist trying to change the world with his music.
J Cole has been groomed by the best in the game from Mos Def (Yassin Bey), Talib Kweli, Nas, and even Jay-Z just to name a few. He has personally experienced HipHop's underground and mainstream audiences building up his fan base the old fashion way. In my opinion he is one of the few most rounded Emcees in the game.
