I’ve already mentioned my admiration for J. Cole many times. With his emcee skills, production prowess and Jay-Z co-sign, I don’t see how he can fail. Cole recently dropped off another banger titled “Return of Simba” via his blog. The title is in reference to “Grown Simba” off the solid The Warm Up mixtape and continues to show Cole’s ever evolving skills.

And if you don’t already know Kendrick Lamar, you damn sure will soon. Especially since he has been in the lab with the good Dr. Dre. However, we all know how that can turn out (word to Rakim, Hittman, Stat Quo….). Below is the first single from his studio release, Section 80 with production from J. Cole. Between the wobbly, but soulful beat and Lamar’s emphatic rhymes about fighting higher powers in any form, whats not to love?:
