    It's like a breath of fresh air when you listen to an album and truly appreciate the lyrical ability of an artist. No corny hooks, or catchphrases... just straight lyrical talent.Now That's what's up.

    this song aint jus about Nas u gotta understand its way deeper than that #NewLegends.. "the single is only the look to sell these nikkaz the book i can only pray that one day you'l read in to it"

  • I'm cool on Weak Shit

    Come on my nigga, a big brother part 2. I feel the heart feltness of the song but fuck Nas he sold out 8 times and is not Tupac so he is no one to let down. You all sold out to white supremacy and let down Tupac. This is the best one i've heard from Cole's new shit. But it's borderline Horrible!

    • Ziggy Jackson

      Hatin' ass old head. What's wrong withchu'!? Hate begets hate, kill all that. Even Malcolm X saw the error in his "hate fueled" ways. Judging from your "white supremacy" comment, I know you eyeballing that Malcom line. My point is, chu talkin bout "Nas sold out 8 times?!" a man is a man, and man is full of flaw, and mistakes alike. If you aint tryna pull us up, or say something constructive keep them bullshit comments on youtube.

  • REBEL INS

    Another reason why I don't like these new "rappers". He sounds like he want to ride Nas's D***. Cmon man this is HipHop, if you can't stay in the battle then i suggest you back the f*** off. Wu Tang Mobb Deep Nas 2pac Biggie Big Pun Rakim, this is hiphop and not what you hear now a days.

    • Anonymous

      I think the main difference is that Nas did U.B.R. 13 years into his career, on his 7th album. He put serious time in the game before paying homage to his biggest influence. All that time he paid his dues and Rakim was still aggy that Nas didn't get his input before making it. Cole is on his second album, paying homage to Nas, but also being defensive over a wack song he made.

    • YO

      Did you think Nas was trying to ride Rakim's dic when he wrote U.B.R. a few years ago?

    • D4v1d

      I suggest u do some research next time b4 u post stupid shit... Better yet listen 2 da lyrics..

    WOW JCOLE YOU DID THIS ONE BRUH, NO LIE I FEEL THA NEED TO BUY THE ALBUM ON THIS SONG ALONE!!!

  • REAL HIPHOP

    If Born Sinner and Good Kid MADD City are nominated in Best Rap Album, Cole will win. His album is more complete, album loops both sonically and conceptually. Niggas sleeping on Cole saying he's boring but like whack niggas like Waka and Gucci. Like Cole said "Ironic you been sleeping on the one that you been dreaming about"

    • YO

      No chance at all that Born Sinner beats GKMC if they both get nominated. The only album that might beat GKMC is Yeezus. And that's not because it's better, but it's the most hyped up and anticipated album of the year and will probably sell that way also.

    As an accountant for YMCMB I can confirm J Cole does not want to go to war with YMCMB. Wayne already said that if Cole disses one more time, he will go Mel Gibson 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. Cole is wack. All Wayne has to do is throw him a rock and Cole will fuck his life up again

    • www.umad.net

      Interestingly enough, out of the "Most Discussed" category, J. Cole has 5 songs up there...and not one member of YMCMB has any...P.S. do you REALLY think they would stand next to ROC Nation or even G.O.O.D music..as their "accountant", you sir, should be fired...clearly you were nothing more than a lucky sperm cell that shouldv'e never found its way to see life.

    Dope Track. Album is sounding like a classic and I am not one to use that term a lot.

    • Moneyman-14@live.com

      I take it both zivaldo and you serious are white and love eminem. Lol getting a fucking life. Coleworld nigga til the world blow, this is hip hop, since the 90's all they talked about was money & bitches. Lol it's obvious that you were one of the dudes who changed their hair blond like shade back then. Faggit cakes

    • zivaldo

      "ride my dick" Typical response from a Cole fanboys over a valid point. YouSerious? is right. Cole's hook game is awful. Easily his biggest flaw. There are some good songs on the album, but half of the album is about "bitches". So many verses dedicated to some bitch Cole is fucking, scooping the baddest bitch, ducking some bitch. You can't even keep up with how many time he uses that word on the album. People need to zip it with that word classic. Instant classics are groundbreaking albums and there's nothing ground breaking on the album.

    • YouKnowNothingAboutHipHop

      @YouSerious?, ride my dick.

    • YouSerious?

      I haven't been messing with much this year, so I can't tell you what's more complete, but I can tell you that hearing Cole whine about bitches and dudes who used to doubt him and now wanna be cool with him on damn near every song gets boring really fast. Half of these songs are poorly constructed too. Land of Snakes has a weak form, songs like Trouble and Runaway sound like their hooks were made up in 10 seconds on the spot. There's weak writing all over this shit, but people jump on Cole's jock just because he can flow nice and has a strong voice for hip-hop. The only songs that really work on this album are Power Trip (good single, a REAL hook), and Let Nas Down (Cole finally says something different).

    Use this song to determine if the person you are speaking to knows what hip hop is or not. THIS IS HIP HOP. WOW. As someone who bought Illmatic (Nas' first album to you kids) when I was 13, this gives me those same chills. And that's rare these days. I always knew J. Cole was the truth. He's stepping up and making it known to the masses now. This'll be the album of my summer 2013. It's all fire so far.

  • Onk

    A comment saying J. Cole is blah, is not hate. For those who throw the word hate around incorrectly, below is a definition of hate. Commenting this artist is nothing special and is a mediocre rapper is simple an opinion of someone who doesn't believe the hype. 0/5 a : intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury b : extreme dislike or antipathy : loathing 2 : an object of hatred

    • ContraDaMan

      I agree Onk...ppl just throw the word "hate" around whenever someone isnt showing grat or love for somn...hating on him would be saying "I'm mad he got money and prob cars and girls"...thats hate..saying u dont like a particular song or saying he's not that impressive is an opinion and you have a right to that...I'm in the same boat as you...he's never really impressed me and seems over hyped due to his RocNation affiliation...a lot of these rappers nowadays are over hyped...nobody's really hot to me...even Kendrick is nice but he aint Nas

  • Eye Control

    Not to drift off topic, but I would like to remind people to go out and buy French Montana's new album. French worked hard and really needs your hard earned money. He has 3 year old boy to feed and a baby mama to take care of. Also he is bringing back that real gritty NY rap that has been gone for so long. French is a man with a vision and he needs your help to make his vision a reality. French's new album will forever change hip hop, it will have rappers look at themselves and realize that things get deeper than this rap shit (to use the words of the great Rick Ross). French Montana is going to save hip hop, he is that great light at the end of a dark dark tunnel...

    man phucc wat yall talkn bout Cole shit hot! He's tellin a story about his personal struggles between tryna make a hit record n drop a quality hip hop record at the same time. Everyone knos that lyrics dont mean shit to most ppl anymore. Even Flaka said its all about the beat and the hook if u tryna make money... Yall dont understand the pressure dats put on an artist like cole to resurrect the style of hip hop a lot of da ol heads say is dead... an artist like tyga can drop some bull shit n its all good cuz u dont xpect much from him... Cole on da other hand is seen as the future n savior of rap

    There's a lot of different opinions . . but the main thing is . everyone knows the potential J.Cole has . . . but he uses his words for stupid shit / songs . . like the MAIN reason ion fuck w/ J.Cole is cuz he dont know how to use what he gotta say as far as albums go . Like my nigga gotta core fanbase and shouldnt have to be worried bout singles and shit cuz he's a spitter plus he has the attention of everyone , Ion fuck w/ em but i do fuck w/ his music cuz even i know the nigga is talented . Plus he needs to focus on bein himself . . it's like he's tryna live in someone elses shadow , or he's afraid to carry the torch he aint hungry no more . . Which is why he's not better then Kendrick . . . . Plus its like the nigga refuses to believe he can surpass them . . Not sayin he will tho

    Born Sinner is J.Cole making no real progress at all. Subject matter stayed the same (I swear to God if this dude talks about college degrees and women/homies who doubted him and now wanna be all over him), the punchlines are still subpar, and there's WAY too much reference to other rappers through lines (he quotes Biggie, Nas, Jay, Kane, etc) and beats (basically goes over the same beats that Tribe and Outkast did for 2 songs). If you asked me "What's J.Cole about?" I'd tell you he's a dude obsessed over shit that people say about him and never lets it go, and he's second next to Game in hip-hop name dropping.

    I mean I understand you let your idol down, but Cole, you made this song for us not Nas. If your making songs for Jay and Nas and they don't like it, then fuck it! YOu have fans who love work out, no need to feel ashamed. IF your just making songs for the veterans, sorry Cole but you got problems. You should care that your fans like your song. Im still coping Born Sinner, but Born Sinner is for ColeNation, not NAS. #ColeWorld

    • Anonymous

      understandable arguement, but u can also look at the picture of what the record is supposed to signify. It talks about letting someone down that u look up to, who saw a lot of potential in you. A lot of people could relate to it, whether it be their parents, schools or even mentors. He is doing what we would all naturally do which is try to give an explanation as to why he took a certain route. Soo I guess it's just more about the message that you don't like to dissapoint the people you look up to, but still stand firm in your decision.

  • Anonymous

    its not even about letting nas..its about letting the whole hip hop community down judging by the fact that he can can do more cuz he has so much potential and he can rap.work out is a shitty song to me...even if you want to make radio friendly songs..you have to make the right songs,the good ones with impressive beats...he makes average songs with average beats.

  • Anonymous

    For the people that say that the song/lyrics are not well thought of...Y'all are just a bunch of haters. First verse he talks about how he was a fan of nas and idolized/idolizes him but was trying to blow up and needed a single for that, he makes the biggest record''work out''of his career and his idol hates it. 2nd verse he explains how he came to making a record like that, for getting a release date in the first place and thinking a person like nas who did the same thing should normally understand, and having gone with the advice of ''playing the game, to change the game'' which he ultimately had to do by sacrificing his artistry and making a radio hit song. The third part he talks about how that sacrifice took a lot from him and apologizes to those that know that he can do better and that it would be the last time he would do it, coz he just had to get recognized by radio to make the change in hip hop''having to go through hell to resurrect it''.......If you still think that the song makes no sense, then I pity you!!!smh

    the song is okay...but the first verse was about letting nas down and the next verses was just out of line..j cole can rap,he can be lyrical and touching with his lyrics sometimes...you can be lyrical and talk about personal or conscious things and still make evergreen music and sell records at the same time...i dont really like his raps or anything hes on but he can actually rap and make sense with it...but to me hes not making the right songs,almost all his songs are average songs..he has so much potentials,he should quit thinking he could be like nas,kanye or jay or watever...he needs to be J COLE!

    Cole just put his thoughts into a a song. I feel Cole gets so much unnecessay hate and love from indivuals who have made their opinions on a track without even having listened to it fully. I agree with your opinion that you shouldn't like an artist because he is a good guy. But you need to do your homework if you think he has no lyrical depth, or his songs are not thought out! Go listen to the warm up and friday night lights, and a few other joints such as 1)Killers, 2) Premeditated murder 3) Beautiful Bliss 4) Relaxation and then make an informed opinion.

  • Understand this

    The problem with 'real hiphop' nerds is that most of them are children and can only see hiphop in black and white. If you're talking about gangster shit or the club or material things, you're automatically a labeled a "bad rapper" and if you saying pseudo-intellectual/pseudo-conscious stuff you're automatically a "good rapper". You people need to understand that hiphop is not that clear cut. There are good rappers out there who talk about gangster shit like Ghostface, and bad rappers who talk about that shit like French Montana....Just like there are good rappers who talk about conscious shit like Mos Def and there are bad rappers who talk about that shit, like J Cole. Just because you talk about something positive, or personal or whatever that doesn't automatically make you a good rapper. I hate how a lot of you are saying he's dope and people should like him just because of his attempts at being "a good guy" In reality his songs are not well thought out, he has no lyrical depth, he's just not that great of a rapper.

    • Juanpol

      i agree completely with what was said. This song was NOT well written, this had potential to be much more but after the first verse it goes "ehh". I understand he is trying to express his emotion, but that does not automatically make the song "good". It need to be ejectued properly, at least at an album lebel, an he fails at that. This would be a mixtape song at best. And about his lyrical depth, re-listen to the whole album. Its pretty much none existant, he is superficial and comes across as trying to hard when he wants to not be shallow. He has 5 songs talking about girls, with a few phrases thrown here and there to try and sound deep. That does not make him a great lyricist. ffs just look at the few bars he sampled from Nas in the begining of this song, when did you hear anything similar to that by Cole in this whole album? And yeah, his mixtapes BEEN hot, they were lyrical. Friday Night Lights is a way better ALBUM than any of his actual albums. He had potential, but its simply not displayed on this album.

    • The Professor

      Understand this: You are an idiot. The first verse was his explanation of his interaction with Nas and the incident where he learned that Nas thought he sold out. The second verse was dedicated to this reaction to the news that he let Nas down and why he had to make a commercial song aka sell out. The third verse, while much broader than the narrow focus on Nas, still stays on topic as J. Cole explains the difference between label cuts and balancing them with the talent that good rappers want to display through their music. You need to actually learn to listen to a song before making an uninformed cursory observation.

      ur a dumbass the whole song flows and every verse relates to wat his point of the song was

    • Hip Hop is resurrected

      Look u have a good point if u only heard his sideline story. Buh since u dont know what u talking about i urge u to go listen to Warm up and Friday Nights and become more infomed before u make ridiculous claims about how he has no lyrical depth. Seriously cuz i think u must be on some strong sedatives to be saying shit like that Cole along with Kendrick are bringing real hip hop. Sure they talk about money and hoes but so did jay, Nas, Pac and biggie but they have a knack of making the music sound good. No disrespect u do have a point regarding the conceptual part of hip hop nowadays but i assure Cole is a diamond in the dirt who is unluckily prone to really unfair criticism. He is a great rapper and a future legend obviously not commercial wise but among the musical side of things!!!!!!!!! peace out

      @ UNDERSTAND THIS....got damn...you sound like literature teacher or some shit...its just music not a book report. And this song was very well thought out...he painted a clear picture...of his emotions and why he felt a certaing way. I saw everything he was saying.. Not you want an example of songs NOT WELL THOUGHT OUT...pick any lil wayne song....he is the definiton of random shit....you can put this song in same boat as a lil wayne song....you just can't

    • Hip Hop Fan

      Thats a good post and sums up the problem I have with J.Cole.

    • Understand this

      ^ It's not well written at all. The song starts out with him telling us about how he loved Nas and how he let Nas down, then he just starts rapping about random shit that has nothing to do with Nas. We don't get to hear about how he tried to improve after hearing his idol say that or if he met Nas again and talked about this...After the first verse he just starts rapping about a bunch of random BS and uses that as filler to complete the song. This is why i say his shit isn't well thought out. It just seemed like he wanted to name drop Nas and this was his excuse to do it. The song has no real purpose...Nothing is learned or gained from telling us this. There is no story, there is no message, there is no direction.

    • MOF

      Lyrically this song is great, it's well written and the beat is dope so why all the hate? Cole's not the best 'new' rapper around, but still he's pretty talented

      I agree with most of that. His story is not compelling enough to be interesting and his production is missing that spark.

    ALL AMERICAN WOMEN are brainwashed by feminism. The problem is, most of them are not even conscious of their feminist brainwashing and programming. I think we need to simplify the message of our movement as a whole, to make it very effective. The message should be that the way to stop feminism is by following two simple rules. 1. Never marry or co-habit with an American or western woman 2. Never have children with an American or western woman If we can WIDELY PROPAGATE the above two rules as the SOLUTION to feminism, we can destroy American women. We need to make those two rules our battle cry and spread them as far and wide as possible, and warn every single man we can, to follow the above two rules in order to stop feminism. Once we simplify our movement and its message and stop mental masturbating like Paul Elam and other retards, then our movement becomes effective. BOYCOTTING is the best way to go. So shout it loudly, BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN

    Gucci is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

      problem is there's so much bull shit in hip hop we don't even know how to judge it anymore. Gucci is the only one who caught a body that YOU KNOW OF..people don't just brag bout shit like that.in fact new york has a history of conscious rappers who actually were real street cats behind the scenes (dre-black sheep)..you are not just rapping your life, your also rapping for those around you, you only need to be credible to be able to tell stories from that point of view..AND ONCE AND FOR ALL NAS DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL AT 12-13 YEARS OLD IN 80'S NEW YORK, DO THE MATH! what else could he have been doing?? i aint saying he's a killer but use yall brains..he was just always smart enough to know better and that's why his story so compelling. shit i even heard the scene in Belly when he was with AZ really happened during the movie shoot on jamaica ave in queens so they put it in the movie. heard that from the twitter of OG Curtis Scoon (google him)

    I feel like people allow others opinions of an album to fuel theirs. Since everyone is praising this album, there's a handful of haters who live for nothing more than to run down a list why the album sucks. I just don't see how there's any room to hate on an album this good. Sideline Story wasn't anywhere near as good as this. Born Sinner reminds me of mixtape Cole, cept on another level. I feel like people hate on great music on these sites so much, it makes me wonder what yall actually ENJOY... cuz it seems like nothing is ever good enough for the e-thugs on hiphop threads.

      Well said. 1) I couldn't hate on anyone getting paid off rap life just too $hort (see what I did there) 2) Why click on an artist you don't like? I really don't get it lol y'all funny tho. Been jamming to Cole since 09 so I'm glad he doin his thing.

    Best song I heard all year, its a classic, one to remember. From the tracks I heard on the album this album is gonna be good bt It had the potential to be great. It has some really great tracks tho like crooked smile, born sinner, this track let nas down, and villuminati. bt tracks like, she knows, and niggas know kept it from getting a great from me and he could of had Jay on the album bt I havent heard everything yet so I could still be great!!! right now the album gets a 4.2 out of 5 until it drops

  • Anonymous

    The album is decent, nothing special from a guy who can actually spit, I think J-Cole needs to make his own lane rather than keep trying to be kanye. I listened to the album all weekend, maybe 4 times or so, and overall I think it was okay, I gotta respect his dedication and commitment to the music but he could have done more. The production could have been way more better, Ironically cole seems to really be in his element when he is doing a mixtape project. Friday night lights is still his best body of work in my opinion, why did he not stick to that lane? Then comes the hooks, all through the album (except towards the end, last 3 tracks) it is the nemesis of Cole; the hooks, dude needs to keep the track interesting and flowfull. I give it a 7 on 10.

  • Anonymous

    aaight its time to adress this shit once an for all This born sinner album is NOT great, its barely good. 6/10. heres why First off, this nigga is corny AS FUCK. Jesus, just listen to this song, this would have been a classic song if he had approached it with some humor in it, can you even imagine that? Like brushing it off, but no this nigga actually went and dedicate a fully serious song just cause Nas "didn't like his shit". Its not like nas even made a statement about it or anything, he just commentes something to No ID and this nigga makes a whole song outta this crap. I used to think only drake was capable of such faggotry, guess i was wrong. And this is just ONE song, but whatever "but annon, check out his bars! Cole is a lyrical rapper!" no, he aint nothing great. If he really wanted to impress nas he would have made an amazing album. Rather, as soon as we start he already drops that cringe worthy infamous faggot line. You kow the one im talking about, in villuminati. This dude tries so hard to be "deep" and appeal to hardcore hip hop fans, but he really isn't deep at all, he simply has no story to tell, or the talent to tell a great story, please somene tell him to stop the nas comparisons. Look at his subject matter, dude has like 5 songs talking about girls, that really could just be merged into one song and add some diversity to this album if he was so lyrical and shit. But no, son talks about girls, how he admires Hov, and is waay to much into that "im hip hop saviour, i don't make mainstream music cause i stay real". The problem with that approach is that you AT LEAST have to make good music if you're not going the commercial route. Dont expect everyone to claim your shit is fantastic just cause you're making an effort. Also, this dude isn't choosing not to make hits, he actually coudn't make a hit to save his life. This album has like 1 radio friendly song, and even then its just "meh" at best, and a song about the girl from the song "dreams"... talking about this dude's subject matter. "rich niggaz" thats alright, its actually a good song,, to bad its an exception in the album more than anything else. Honestly, Friday Night Lights shits all over this album or his first one, that shit should have been an album. The Warm Up also is better than this, lets admit it Cole simply isn't what we once expected he would become. He even has Hov as a mentor, and chooses to go the exact oposite way picking the less radio friendly beats to rap on, he is going to get dropped from the label if he keeps up being such a drag to roc nation. Next topic, the beats.. He coudn't pick a beat to save his life, perhaps the only relation to Nas he actually has. Like he wasted all his good shit on the mixtapes, the best songs from there he re used on his first album, and he completely run out of beats for this one. He doesn't even aknowledge it and use some outside producing, he produces all this shit because "its not for mainstream, its for real hip hop fans" right? damn fuck no, whack beats, whackier bars, honestly not a sinlge melody in the whole shit that keeps lingering in my mind after listening to it. His hook get SO boring once you listen to A WHOLE ALBUM of him alone with no features, and his flow.... Only the first and last songs on the album have a nice flow, some variety to keep the listener engaged, the rest is the same exact flow for everything its like he is planning on no one trying to listen his shit from start to finish without pausing in the middle. Really, i don't see anyone banging this in their car, any song, or in the radio, or any reason to play this on their ipod 3 months from now on. Cole failed us. Before all the comments calling me a hater and shit, call me whatever you want but i DARE ANYONE to discredit any of the points i made about why i think its bad. Argue with facts Its not a horrible album, its ok, thats why it gets a 6, some songs are good like Land of the Snakes, Rich Niggaz, Villuminati (minus some whack bars) but honestly simply not good enought to find a place on anyone's ipod on the long-term. I expected so much more, i am disappointed,,, and that collab album with kendrick is starting to sound like a horrible idea, he'd get murked bad on every song

      so much dumb shit in this post and you clearly show your lack of understanding of the topic. J cole cant pick beats. He makes 99% of is own beats. Look at this whole careers dproduction credits. J cole has no story nor the skill to tell one. His first three mix tapes were all related and represented different points in a ball players (rappers) up coming. That in itself is difficult enough. He couldnt make a hit to save his life? Power trip has been on the radio non stop for 2 months now. Hes about to get dropped from the label if he keeps it up. Why is Jay just NOW giving him a feature? Because he earned it. and he completely run out of beats for this one. He doesn't even aknowledge it and use some outside producing- he produced every song on the album except for 2 interludes. You dont know dick.. Youre the definition of a biased hater.

      You're not the only one but you're wrong. Illmatic doesn't have one bad song. It was Written has a few. But it also has some songs better than what was on Illmatic. It's a discussion people have all the time. Regardless, both albums are great and just thank god we have someone like Nas.

    • Anonymous

      It's not a better album. The only people who say that are idiots who don't understand illmatic and enjoy a more modern/popish sound. A lot of the people who say that album is better would probably pick Stillmatic as Nas best album if they could...But they feel like it would be more acceptable to say IWW because it came out in the 90's. I wish people would just be honest and say "I don't get illmatic, it's too deep for me. i like pop beats" Instead of using IWW as a scapegoat and pretending that it's the better album of the two.

    My first time doing coke I did a line right off gunplay's sweaty and hairy ass crack. He didnt properly wipe his ass before I did that line, so he had smeared shit all over his butt cheeks. And as the coke went up my nostril, a chunk of poop went up with it, and I coughed and it ended up in my mouth, so I literally ate gunplay's shit. But I enjoyed it, it tasted like nutella. From that day on I have sexual fantasies about gunplay, mainly dressing up like a clown and sticking corndogs up his ass then eating them.

    So does this mean no J. Cole X Nas collaboration in the near future? Let's be honest though "Work Out" was wack but had a proper meaning to the whole album. We all know "Who Dat" is greater than "Work Out" & "Cant Get Enough" is better than "Work Out." Hopefully we do get a J. Cole X Nas collaboration. Nas spoke the truth on the single though.

    lots of hate out here. cole is ding something right

  • isma

    Fiire, best song/production is "trouble", crooked smile, villuminati, born sinner dope album

  • Tim McSweeney

    Best Cole song in years...

  • VS

    I honestly think this album is a classic.

  • Cool music

    @coley cole I wanted to be impressed, and to be honest with all the hype and publicity this album was getting I thought I would be. But the fact of the matter is, the album is quite boring. Same recycled productions and hook styles. Lack of interesting lyrical content etc. really disappointed, I was planning on buying it when it came out but I didn't expect it to be this average. Truly yours 1&2 were both better than the album! I have no idea how some of those tracks didn't make the album. ('J cole - Crunch time' for example. Very impressive track, I really dig that song) I'll use kanye west last album as example of what I look for. in my opinion that was a great album. 'Devil in a new dress' , 'blame game' etc. were both refreshingly new with its production, content and the way songs were structured. The same can be said about many songs on GKMC. Artist thinking of creative ways to communicate there message. J cole just didn't do that on this album. As I said very average but maybe I will grow to like it

  • Jason Cole fell off

    "boy meets world and im trying to find the new topanga." j cole is so weak with this rhymes.

  • Thermonick

    His last album on Roc Nation. How come you make a song in the honor of Nas like that while Jsy-z is your boss.

  • Jitz

    are yall crazy??? joint is classic. timeless. album very dope. let nas down is a classic. sax is fuckin dope.

  • Anonymous

    This album is a thousand times better than G.K.MMAD CITY. The album is more diverse, and j Coles lyrical content is more personable, I always thought j Cole was a better lyricist than Kendrick Lamar anyway, born sinner 4.5/5

  • Hip Hop Fan

    Good track but this is a reworking of Kanye's 'Big Brother' track. Not sure how I feel about these open love letters to other rappers. Plus, I hearing a couple of jabs being sent Jay's way. Is he blaming Jay for pushing for more hit records? I threw a couple his way during the 'Truly Yours' mixtapes as well. The kid may be on the verge of getting dropped.

    I'm sick of J Cole. The only reason he has a buzz right now is because he said he was going to drop with Kanye. His music is mediocre and he doesn't deserve a record deal.

  • dotdotdot

    Not gonna lie, when I FIRST heard the album, I thought it was the weakest, most overhyped album of the decade "Here we go again, that gay ass J.Cole's underachieved". But actually, after my 4th and 5th listen, I was like "Yo, this J.Cole is killin this shit" the bitch ass album grew on me hahahaha, one of the best I've heard in a while - "Don't hate, appreciate" 5/5, he let nas down, but not the fans...

  • chris

    These verses are so potent man. I can't wait to get the album.

  • Yo

    Everybody has their own opinion but i see lots of negative comments,im just thinking...what more are you looking for this shit is actually hip-hop, the shit we ask for i dont know bout yall but i feel this

  • V

    Let Nas Down, Villuminati, Rich Niggaz, Power Trip and maybe Land of Snakes are the only good good songs, the others are alright, but nothing special.

  • Sejotas

    J. Cole has lyrics but he is soft as hell. Always on some emotional shit, This nigga needs a hug for real.

  • filthyslut

    Why are people saying born sinner is going to be a classic? LMAOOOO, it'll probably only get maxiumum 3/5, or L/XXL, smh, people need to start realising that J.COLE IS SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      The comment section is open to both positive and negative criticism. Criticism does not= hate. I know rappers poisoned your mind to defend them anytime someone says something negative about them but they have all right to say they don't like a fucking song

    this nigga needs to STOP rapping...i would never buy one of his cds...i used to think he was kinda dope but this is just sad

  • Drake runs rap

    what a drake wannabe drake does a song girls love beyonce and j snore copies the concept of making a song about another celeb. This nigga will never be as hot as drake is right now he will never sell as much he will never be as sucessfull. He will allways come across as a wanna be. Drake runs rap every song drake makes is a hit he is the only one that can go platinum he is the face of rap and it just makes these haters angry that their favourite rappers will never be on drakes level right now.

      I agree, most songs were good or average. Would give it a 6.5-7/10. Thought I was the only one cause when you look at the comments on other sites they calling this shit a classic and dope. Some even had the nerve to call it better than Good Kid Mad city, Smh! I only like, Let Nas Down, Villuminati, Rich Niggaz, Power Trip and maybe Land of Snakes (less of the last two tho), the rest are ehh His flow is pretty much the same throughout the whole album, but I will say she switch it up for a couple a songs. Beats are a lil above average (6.5/10). Lyrics are coo, but seems like he talks about the same shit. No repeat tracks, a few replayable ones tho

    • J. Cole= Average rapper

      Oh Coley Cole A great album is say Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city You know a well done concept album with great lyrics, flow and even a unique way of story telling here and there. J. Cole is the definition of an average rapper. He does nothing outstanding he sounds like a smarter version of most mainstream rappers. There isn't a single track on Born Sinner that's just amazing. They're all either good or average.

    • coley cole

      Whats a great album in your opinion then? cuz if this is average yall hip hop fans are fucking stupid lol

      Hot single? The fuck do you listen to...lady gaga and Pink? This is Hip-Hop, no one real in hip hop makes "Hot singles"

      This isnt a single you mong. you have to be absolutely etarded for that comment hahaha. Good song though

  • res

    j.cole is a boring little faggot. so bland. weak voice, trash lyrics, lame flow. wack beats. lame content. "sorry nas" is how j.cole gets deep. he has nothing to offer. but he's jay-z artist. i'm sure jay-z knows j.cole completely sucks. he should've known that after j.cole gave him a verse for the blueprint 3 that NOBODY talked or cared about. rappers used to really be showmen, or have incredible skill. usually both. this kid has nothing. he's no better than 1000 other kids rapping to pass time he just has a safe little half white nerd image that jay thought he could market. LOL @ all j.cole making girl records. LOL @ rappers that got no pussy before rap making girl records. you can tell cuz his girl records are super corny and suck.

    • Big Bad Uno Ocho Gang, E'z up!

      res, I agree with you and I don't give a fuck if super fans don't. I think J.Cole is a CLOWN and probably has more goofy white fans than black.

    This song is ok. Checkout thegrandreport, they got some good hip hop news and videos on there

  • Not Impressed

    There's no point to this song. The first verse talks about how he was a Nas fan and how Nas thought his song was garbage...Okay. Then the rest of the song is just filler, talking about random shit that has nothing to do with Nas. He could have used the rest of the song to talk about what he's learned since then, how he's improved, and how what Nas said made him never want to never suck again...But instead he wastes the rest of the song spewing random nonsense. Most of this guys songs are like this, he has trouble staying on concepts. I'm not impressed

    This guy is Biggie reincarnated IMO! As far as painting pictures with words. I felt like I was apart of that moment with him and Nas. This is what hip-hop is missing to me. Subject matter. Good- ish Mr. Cole.

    • gun di liro

      LOOOOL. Very few artists in the history of hip hop could string words together like Big. J. Cole is NOT one of them. Sorry.

      You have a lot of good MCs but some I question to be in the wrong slots. I'm not sure what you used to rate. I was surprised where you put Kane and there's no Grand Master Caz. Prodigy, Mase, sticky fingaz aren't that good. I'm not hating but this isn't empirical data no list will ever be widely agreed on....thought provoking though.
