This is funny, sad, and stupid all at the same time
I hope J. Cole and Kanye get on a song together and call it “June 18.”
I wish I had people to play music with besides just on Sundays. I think it would be fun and allow me to be creative. Plus, I would just get better at playing in general
Kanye West’s subject matter is ten times better than Born Sinner. I’d rather hear his political views and such than the emotional setbacks of Jermaine Cole any day
Yeezus is the first hip hop album I’ve seen in six hundred years that’s less than 12 songs
….. And that’s just the summer
Well, I’ll be working tonight from 10pm-7am, getting off and coming home, changing clothes, then going straight to church to play drums. I’ll probably sleep till eight after I get home, which will give me enough time to get ready for work again tomorrow night….
I wanna see more hip hop albums with no guest verses like J. Cole’s Born Sinner. It’s impressive and makes for a good part of the project. Some features will ruin albums.
“Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke is currently the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100songs chart.
“Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis sits at number two.
And “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake is at number four.
All three are white artist that sing African-American-oriented music. Maybe, like Eminem says, they only sell more than their black counterparts because they’re white.
So, if you wanna make some money, get a white guy with soul and get him a hit….
The-Dream said in this interview that:
It’s called rhythm and blues; they just took the blues out of it for so long. What’s crazy is that blacks can’t do soul records any more. We love Adele singing it, but Beyoncé singing it? No.
This is where we see guys like Usher and Ne-Yo shying away from their R&B sound earlier in their careers to doing Euro-Dance type records with big name producers such as David Guetta and Calvin Harris. That’s what The-Dream is saying.
What do y’all think? Is this an issue, a common thing that will always happen, or just a false perspective?
On The Billboard Hot 100 Songs chart
“Blurred Lines” is number one
“Can’t Hold Us” is number two
“Mirrors” is number four
White people singing black music sells more than anything.
And it’s been that way since the 1950s.
This is one of the best new pilots I’ve seen in the last couple of years. Very good show with a plot I can’t wait to see unfold. Definitely watching the rest of this season.
J. Cole didn’t bring what I expected on this album. I hate bringing up past projects and comparing them to an artist’s current work, but he has yet to top Friday Night Lights.
This album is definitely better than Cole World: The Sideline Story. His lyricism isn’t bad, the beats are decent, and every verse on the album is him by himself. I really appreciate that as a hip hop fan in the world today. Some albums, such as Game’s Jesus Piece, have less than four songs with no guest verses on them, which is really tough to grasp when you want to hear a project in depth.
What makes me not call this album a classic, like I’ve seen a lot on Twitter a lot, is his subject matter. Truly Yours 1, “Miss America,” and “Crooked Smile” were the three items I heard before listening to the album that made me get hyped for Born Sinner. Those songs have Cole discussing different issues that I see and like to hear his perspective over. Most of the tracks on this album are Cole spitting his thoughts on the relationships with girls and the ups and downs that come with it all.
To be honest…… I DON’T CARE ABOUT HOW MUCH YOU AND YOUR GIRL(S) FIGHT AND HAVE DIFFERENCES.
That doesn’t mean I hate it, cause if I could relate to it I would probably love it. I just like hearing Jermiane talk about society, I guess.
It just felt mediocre and not near what he is capable of doing, in my opinion.
