It's Official... He's My FAV!

I got tired of tweeting my love for J. Cole and writing obsessive whatsapp statuses telling the whole of my contact list what song I'm currently humming along to and why, so I decided to blog about him! (Last mention... I promise, and then I'll retire)

J. Cole keeps Hip Hop alive!
I have always been quite a big fan of J.Cole, I first got introduced to him during my time at University by a follower of mine on Twitter. When I first heard his voice, his flow, and his words... I fell in love, no exaggeration; I was infatuated by his voice, was smitten with his lyrics and besotted by his passion and poetical content. He had no flaws in my eyes. If you have been following my online footsteps, you may remember a point in 2010 where his track "Higher" was the theme song to my tumblr La Bella VIta 9 which was from his third mixtape 'Friday Night Lights' with songs such as "Cost Me a Lot”,” Premeditated Murder", "Home for the Holidays", "Love Me Not" and "In the Morning" featuring Drake (which I used to fall asleep to HASHTAG - cringe). I was the one in my Uni house who loved music so I would play the mixtape out loud, open the doors, windows and I had all my housemates fake rapping in our corridor.

Then he disappeared... </3

I moved on and went back to Drake, I almost lost faith in him but saw him pop up a few times like in Beyonce's "We Like To Party" replacing Andre 3000....

... But that wasn't enough for me, if you know me I love music just as much as I love beauty, I'm always trying to hear whats new and I like a variety. So when J. Cole went missing (to record this album of course) it's like I kinda forced myself to get bored of him.

My brother purchased Born Sinner when it came out, he used to play it loud in the house (it runs in the family lol) and I was being stubborn acting like I didn't care for it, didn't want to listen to it and blah blah. I was a bit disappointed from Kanye's Yeezus so I didn't want to hear similar things from J. Cole so I left it. However, the songs were so catchy; I even heard myself singing along to "Crooked Smile" featuring TLC when usually I have to to listen to a song like six times before I can rate it or fully relate to it. He came back and took it back (in my humble opinion) I felt a sense of nostalgia, he was rough, passionate had music you could sway to but it was still real, it was him and he was telling his story, his struggle.

I have to rate it 9/10
I could be biased so have a listen yourself.
My gift to you is a few of my favourite songs from Born Sinner, below:
