J.Cole Mixtape Release Party


J.Cole is the latest artist signed to Jay Z’s label Roc Nation. His mixtape – The Warm Up- debuted this week and I attended the listening party to check him out. I don’t remember hearing much about him, but once I mentioned his name to other people they were familiar with him, and so apparently I was out of the loop. I honestly was not blown away from the performance but I was blown away by him as a person. He was extremely humble and appreciative and that mentallity can take him very far. His story is very inspiring also, leaking with passion, ambition, and drive. I could tell both after meeting him and reading about him that success was not an option for him, it was the only choice.

Check out a snippet from his bio:

Feeling the need to be heard, J. Cole used college as a tool to chase his dreams. He attended St. John’s University on an academic scholarship, choosing the school so that he could be in the heart of the music industry: New York City. After polishing his sound and graduating Magna Cum Laude, J. Cole is dropping his debut mixtape, properly titled “The Come Up” hosted by DJ On Point. A mash up of dusty, soul filled sound beds, raw, energetic drums and an endless range of topics—everything from the carefree days of college to the seemingly endless plight of those have-nots scrapping for change—The Come Up puts J. Cole’s broad palette of lyrical and production talents on display. “All a nigga wanna do is take his momma from that, but they rather lock us up and make sure we don’t come back,” he vehemently spits over the cascading keys and triumphant strings of the self produced “Lil’ Ghetto Nigga.”

Interview with J. Cole coming soon.
