  • A Person

    4/5 stars When looking at this track, well, I really like the production, good hook, lyrically, J Cole comes across as self-aware and intelligent, but he still has a lot of room to grow as a lyricist. He has serious potential, and it would be dumb to sleep on him, unless he goes really wack with the features on his future work.

    This song is a reminder to be comfortable in your own skin. I like how Cole made fun of his own eyebrows and teeth. It's not corny in any way. Plus it sounds good and is enjoyable to listen to. It's not demeaning to women or "ratchet" sounding like a lot of today's mainstream hip hop. Mainstream hip hop needs songs like this these days. It's a nice change of pace. Cole points out his own flaws and not many people do that nowadays. Bravo to Cole.

    • ELjay

      @ WestCoast17: Brother Ali sounds NOTHING like killer mike haha wtf son ===> aw man, you sill don't get it huh? Im talking about VOICES, not about FLOW. Listen to Mourning America from Brother Ali and compare the voice to the one of Killer Mike... Or maybe ur brain can't handle "so much" information. In that case, ur practically a dead walker and I feel sorry for ur family.

    • WestCoast17

      Brother Ali sounds NOTHING like killer mike haha wtf son

    • ELjay

      flow/voice... whateva. If the title said Drake feat. TLC, I couldn't have said if the title was wrong or right. Like Action Bronson sounds like Ghostface Like Brother Ali sounds like Killer Mike Like the name Anonymous is getting boring and has 0% originality.

    • Anonymous

      wow @ELJAY how stupid can you get....how does his flow sound like drake's drake doesnt even flow all he does is sing

    • ELjay

      everyone has their own opinions. Lyric wise, yeh Cole is strong. But if his lyrics are good, that doesn't make that it sounds very nice. He sounds and flows like Drake and I don't like Drake. Lyric wise, I get ya, no doubt on that. But a song is more than just lyrics. - lyrics - flow - voice - melo - beat - chorus If i need to chose between The White Mandingos "Mandingo's Rally" or "Crooked Smile" from Cole, well that's an easy one for me

    As an accountant for YMCMB I can confirm Kendrick does not want to go to war with YMCMB. Wayne already said that if Lamar barks one more time, he will go Mike Vick on him. The YMCMB army is built for war. Wayne a certified gangsta. He got 3 tear drops, did a bid on the island and all that. Wayne ethered rappers and even caused permanent damage to Dez Bryant's knee. Kendrick is wack. All Wayne has to do is throw him a rock and Kendrick will fuck his life up again

    Nothing but a bunch of goofs on here voting 5 stars for this. Really, 5 stars?? How the fuck you figure?? Ain't nothing 5 stars about this. Get serious, man. Any joint off ILLMATIC is 5 stars. This joint ain't even close to 5 stars, you fucking chavalas! It's time to up your standards or get your hearing checked.

    • tip

      Rate it what you want. Real music lovers interpret songs differently and yes this may mean more to some than others. Who cares what others think and what they rate it. Free your mind and don't pay attention to the whole rating or how many stars a song gets. Listen to the message...

    • Big Bad Barrio 18, E'z up!

      You don't need to argue with me and talk about opinions. Just admit you know I'm right that there is absolutely nothing 5 star about this Cole joint right here. I don't give a shit about opinions. I'm stating FACT, TRUTH, REALITY, do you understand?

    • Big Bad Barrio 18, E'z up!

      I'm not NAS's biggest fan and not all of NAS joints are 5 star but "Illmatic" is a classic fucking album and every joint off that is 5 star. It's a QUALITY album with QUALITY lyrics and QUALITY production. I'm just saying, THINK more carefully before you rate something, even if you are a big fan of Cole. Be a little more realistic when rating. It's absolute ludicrous giving this Cole song 5 stars.

    • Anonymous

      Oh and you aren't a dickrider by slurping all over Nas' dong. Get over it, Illmatic was great, but not perfect either

    • onelove

      finally someone who speaks the truth... fans be dickriding 2 hard. Nothing above average with this joint at all.

    • Justin Case

      Real talk. Standards today are just maaad low. 5 stars for this song is laughable. It's got a positive message, but there's nothing exceptional about it. I don't think it's a bad song at all, but it's far from perfect.

  • BOY

    5 reasons why Lil Wayne is better than BIG: 1. Lil Wayne actually writes his songs,, BIG stole lyrics from Lil Wayne. 2. BIG is too lazy he doesnt even make songs anymore. 3. Lil Wayne is a GENIUS. 4. Lil Wayne is hotter than BIG so he gets more WOMEN 5. BIG was gay and had no talent YMCMB!

      No chance. Cole and Kendrick are CLOWNS just like all the rest. Hip hop is history. It's time to change the name of this genre and soon. Fat Joe was correct when he said "hip hop is run by the gay mafia." It's nothing but a bunch of FAGS running around in the game making a mockey of hip hop music/culture.

  • badcompany

    This is what we need from Jermaine real hip hop all day every day

  • Anonymous

    It's funny how people put J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar under this microscope. They are killing the game and bringing something new where substance meets mainstream. The folks who listen to Wayne and Ross everyday are mad because they feel like something is missing and you know what that element of missing is? It's ignorance. They aren't ignorant MC's they have something to say and a clear vision but don't get it twisted they can flex lyrical ability too but they aren't going to do it EVERY SONG! So the backpackers gotta know that these guys are SONGWRITERS TOO. This is the progression from just a hip hop artist to an artist. 2Pac managed to transcend that and 2Pac wasn't even super lyrical. He was a poet. Biggie was a lyrical assassin but to me he didnt transcend like Pac did but in terms of HipHop Biggie is the GOAT. My point is that ARTISTS like J.Cole and Kendrick have more to contribute to music than just "rap" go to Lil Wayne for that. If y'all have complaints, then don't listen to the shit...But see y'all aren't content by doing that, y'all get mad why folks are listening and these two have a large following and that's because real recognize real and folks are sick of the garbage bullshit that Officer Ricky and Lil Wayne (who idiotically reference to Till who was murdered) y'all folks want that ignorant shit, that shit that don't even matter. When you want that real hip hop shit, holler at Cole, Kendrick, Jay Electronica, Phonte, Nas, Lupe, etc. etc.

    • Not Impressed

      Do you know how many song from the 2000's ended in those choirs? Nothing creative about that at all. He stole that from Just Blaze. J Cole is trapped in the 2000's and I'm not just not impressed

  • Anonymous

    Personally I think Cole's album will be better than Kanye's but having his album come out the same day as him is definitely a commercial mistake for a young artist. Sales wise and just for generating buzz.

    • bayoverla

      it really doesn't mattter that much. Only true fans buy albums these days, if that. Casual fans won't buy an album from j.cole or kanye. Cole has his fanbase and those people will continue to support even if he falls off.

  • KingTD

    Too much hate. This is a solid, cool, nice track. 5/5.

  • mike

    If his album is going to be really cohesive with this style, then I will wait and watch before I can say anything. He moved his album to June 18 and according to DX he wants to compete with kanye. Some how I have this thought in mind that he thinks Kanye is going to be only obstacle to him and if that is the case I would laugh because judging from what I have seen so far from released rap albums this year ,cole has a lot of obstacles. I can't wait for the album to come out and the track is not bad, infect its nice.

  • Anonymous

    A mainstream rapper in 2013 releases a song that's a positive message and catchy but people still find a way to shit on it. Unbelievable. Yes the subject has been done before by TLC. That was the point of having them feature on this song. As long as the artist puts his or her own spin on it then it's all good. Cole did that with this song. Kendrick did it on No Makeup. There should be more positive tracks like this in the mainstream. It's better than the superficial bullshit we've heard the past ten yaers.

    It's unfortunate how fucked up the thinking of people are nowadays. A real artist doesn't make music to showcase his new innovations. A real artist makes music based on his inspirations. When Marvin Gaye hit the studio to record what's going On, u think he was thinking about innovation, of course he had the talent but his inspirations came first and the outcome was a timeless work of art, Illmatic is what it is today because Nas rhymes was based on his experiences in the projects, he brought the grimy life of the hood to the attention of the people who never lived there.

      Lost Ones isn't creative...Nick Cannon did that in like 2003. The song is called "Can I Live" and it was way better. Common did that song and it was called "Retrospect For Life" and it was way better. Dollar and a Dream is not creative and he has done that song 3 times already. What else you got?

    You people complain about everything. This song is dope, it has substance and positive. You all say he talks about the same thing, so does Lil Wayne, DRAKE, 2 chainz, Kendrick, etc. Ya'll can't really judge an album based on the single, for the most part an album single is structured for the radio. Radio stations do not play straight up Hip Hop. so stop complaining and he's boring just because he speak that realness that the average person can relate to.

  • KevinD585

    I love how if a hip hop song isn't about "street life", promoting hate, or reflecting the perspective of a chronic pessimist then it's mainstream garbage by default. The beat and lyrics are solid, a legendary group is being paid homage by a "new school" emcee, and it has a positive message; something that is sorely lacking in the hip hop community these days. Some of you really need to open up your eyes and expand your perspective. Not everything has to be murder, drugs, bitches, and hate. And you people wonder why hip hop is still under attack these days. SMH...

    yelawolf sold 2 copies of his album so he is out of the equation. joey badass has only one mix tape, how do you know he wouldn't bring anything new as time goes by and he is a pretty good rapper. kendrick is a good rapper and so is cole. cole does every production on his album and still delivers. this is a pretty good song which will grow on people.and what do you mean by being innovative getting david guetta or featuring an euro tune on your song? sorry but thats not being innovative. if cole was to take such risk you guys will be the same to criticize him. cole is the new nas because if he does something poppy he gets criticized and when he does the normal thing he does he is boring. if u dont like his music go listen to kanye west he has the innovative euro feel in his songs leave coles song to his die hard fans, they are still gonna cop his album when its out..

    • Not Impressed

      It doesn't even make sense arguing anymore. It's clear that you're very close minded if you think hiphop can only be this or David Guetta/Marey Carey or whatever the fuck. This is the same reason why J Cole keeps doing these mediocre songs. He thinks the same way you people do. To him, his only options are to be "pseudo-conscious" or be a "pop artist". He's not creative enough to think outside of that box. He (and you) think too small...That's why J Cole continues to be stay stuck in 2000's doing dumbed down versions of old Kanye songs.

    • Very Impressed

      You sound like a hater. So if David Guetta was featured on this track you would appreciate it more? What else do u want from Cole. What new stuff do u want him to do sing a duet with Miguel and Mariah Carey. Cole is a lyricists so don't expect that from him.This is a banging beat, legendary performance from TLC, nice verses from Cole. and what do you mean invent new rapping styles? You sound like u know nothing about rap?

    • Not Impressed

      You sound young and brainwashed. David Guetta is not a "risk", obviously. I'm saying he should actually be creative and try something new. Create a new style of beats, come up with more interesting concepts, invent new rapping styles, do something. All J Cole really does is follow the formula of the rappers he listened to in the mid 2000's. He is not the "new Nas" because Nas actually takes risks. Nas has songs were he tells stories backwards, talks about aliens, plays the part of a woman who has aids, acts as a detective who has to solve who killed hiphop, etc Nas is creative and deep, J Cole isn't. He just does the same old dumbed down concepts of things he heard in the past and pretends to be a conscious rapper

  • J cole slowly becoming unlistenable

    j cole was on fire when he first came out, but dude is losing his shine fast. same old flow, nothing new. he has no personality when rapping. its like he just going through the motions

    Another good song but there's nothing unique or special about it, it's just okay. Beat sounds like a regular beat from the 2000's. If you go back 10, 15 years you could find loads of songs like this. All of his music sounds outdated, he does nothing creative or innovative, he takes no risks. But of course the younger hiphop heads are going to like it because they just started listening to hiphop 2 years ago and they've never heard shit like this before. Songs like this have been done to DEATH. It's sad that "normal" is now "exceptional" in this day and age. It shows you how much music sucks as a whole.

    • kas

      I completely agree with, Notimpressed. Cole is a great rapper no doubt, but he isn't doing anything exceptional and awe-inspiring. All of his songs are pretty much on the same theme. Take Kendrick for example, he is mad talented. Deals with diverse themes and got different voices and sonically is able to come up with much fresher music. Take Yelawolf, dude has crazy flows and his raps have an IMAGERY that is sorely missed in today's scene. But then we have someone like Joey Badass, who doesn't bring ANYTHING new to the table. He just sounds like a good 90's rapper...

      Yeah, it's Cole's take on Unpretty...that's obvious....embracing your flaws. But it doesn't SOUND anything like it. You act like EVERY rapper has done a song like this. Artists can take on the same subject but do it in their own way. Lots of songs have the same theme. Seems like you're just nitpickin for the sake of it.

    • you a fool

      you talk more shit than yur ass does..this aint no race with yur regular rapper

    • Not Impressed

      ^ Yes, it does. This sounds exactly like a song from the early/mid 2000's. And like HHDX said, TLC themselves did this concept already with "Unpretty". There's nothing unique about this and it does sound old. Don't let you fanboyism blind you.

    • Professor Lasky

      HAHA, fuck outta here fam. This sounds NOTHING like the radio hits 10-15 years ago and sounds NOTHING like songs on the radio now. Doesn't take risks? Putting TLC on the hook is a risk. They've been out of the game for awhile and aren't anywhere near as popular as they once were. Cole doesn't throw Rihanna on a hook or Future on a hook like other rappers nowadays. You're nitpickin, fam. This song is a breath of fresh air. Production is dope and doesn't sound dated whatsoever.
