What can we say? J. Cole’s a heat maker.
The Roc Nation rapper has never been the one to hype his life or portray his career more than what it actually is, and it’s something he prides himself on.
Unlike most rappers, J. Cole has consistently spoke his truth with unbridled honesty time-after-time, track-after-track.
Once again, J. Cole releases an introspective, Lauryn Hill-sampled track titled “Cole Summer,” where he discusses the uncertainty of his career, society’s expectations of the stereotypical rapper, his anxiety over delivering a classic sophomore album, and his relationship with mentor/mogul Jay-Z.
J. Cole’s honesty is unmatched and refreshing, so we decided to round up 12 of J. Cole’s hottest lines. Including witty moments of clarity, explicitness, and unmistaken candidness.
J. Cole’s long-awaited and highly-anticipated sophomore album, Born Sinner, is scheduled to drop June 25.
Check out the 12 hottest lines of “Cole Summer” down below!
“This sample was yellin’ “loop me!”/ Ms. Hill please don’t sue me.”
“Cause really I am just a born sinner the opposite of a winner/ Cole summer, I predict another winter.”
“Sharing things I think quietly, with those that admire me/ Remember MTV Diaries? This something like that.”
“Cause I ain’t one of these rappers out here frontin’ like he got it, nigga/I ain’t fuckin’ got it, nigga/ Throwing thousands in the strip club with Drizzy/ Difference is I’m through four, he’s throwing fifty.”
“Up in Hova office like he the fucking principal/ Put me in with Stargate, that shit was like detention now/ Just tellin’ my story so dissin’ ain’t my intention now/ Drop a couple hits and all the dumbies pay attention now.”
“But I finally put my Momma in that E class, nigga/ And I told her quit her job, oh, hold your horses/ If my next album flops it’s back to the post office, both of us, shit/ They’re saying that’s a real possibility/ The thought alone is killing me.”
“Bitches saying: “you a rappin’ nigga, ain’t you supposed to tip more?”/ I don’t see no pussy, baby, ain’t you supposed to strip more?”
“5 days to finish the album, I’m scramblin’ now/Took a break from sampling now.”
“If i had one wish, I would fuck Tia and Tamera, at the same time/And put name tags on they titties so I don’t get they name wrong/ Screamin’ “Game on”/Like Wayne’s World, that just came on.”
“I dropped Friday Night Lights in the winter just to make her jealous/ wanted to drop the album in the summer/ But the label didn’t think that they could sell it/ Recoup the first week, I think it ain’t shit they can tell us.”
“Just to say a few words to this bitch named Summer/June will make four years since I gave you my number.”
” The Warm Up dropped, I got hot, you called it a classic/ And Jay dropped “Autotune”, you wanted him back, shit/ Play my position, the whole while still wishin’.”
