J. Cole

If this too deep for the intro I’ll find another use
but just in case its perfect let me introduce
it’s Cole, i had a dream and so I made a move
a ill ass n-gga who just so happened to stay in school
still rap for hustlers and muthaf-ckers that hated school
said thats for busters that heard my sh-t and I made it cool
This aint to say that I’m gifted as if I’m Christmas shopping
I got gangsta n-ggas that lining up in that missions office
and possibly cause all the hoe n-ggas scrape
and I sh-t up on my plate so you know a n-gga late to my first class
I’d much rather sit up in first class
should I admit that a slutty b-tch was my first smash
was it experience so nah I didnt wear it out
always thought my first time would be with someone I cared about
but being a virgin was something to be embarrassed bout
I used to ask for practice so I wasnt scared out my mind
you call it rhymes I call it clearing out my mind
was just a young boy staring out my blind
till I got free from my momma leash
running loose through the streets
like a stray dog in heat
and we looking for some freaks can you play
pardon me, whats your name, don’t mistake me for no lame
no not me
she do hours on the team cause she seen how tall I’d be
in the club dappin’ n-ggas, even til he R-I-P
damn, you win some, you lose some
that just how its happens
and if a n-gga step up to ya, then you gotta scrap em
your name is all you got, throwing hands by the bathroom
its funny I barely told nobody I started rapping
cause see some n-ggas was haters that I viewed as clowns
at 14 I knew I was the nicest dude around
I gotta make a move, I gotta do this now
if they don’t know your dreams, than they cant shoot em down

This week’s lyrics comes from an artist that I feel needs to be skyrocketed to the spotlight. To be hand picked by Jay-Z as the first RocNation signee must account for something. With his third mixtape, “Friday Night Lights” making its circulation in the streets, you gotta admit that the “kid from the Ville” (Fayetteville, North Carolina) got skills and wordplay that might even rival his own boss repertoire. The young rookie’s mixtape has a guest list that many upcoming artist dream of having on their actual album. Drake, Kanye West, and many other assist Mr. Cole in this effort. He also is featured on the smash hit “All I want is you” by Miguel which is scorching through headphones the world over.

Comment on what you think of this and please suggest lyrical content that you feel should be featured.
