Download: J.Cole: The Cure
cole is the man, this shit is dope!! Haven’t even listened to it yet.
Fire… Dammit about damn time we hear some GOOD music. This year as just been the worst for music in a long time. People like cole is the only reason im still on sites like this. Nice track right here and shout out to GOOD music!
How is this year bad?
Slaughterhouse releasing a mixtape and an album
Kendrick Lamar releasing
Ab Soul dropped
Schoolboy Q dropped
Lupe Fisaco releasing
GOOD Music releasing
50 Cent releasing
Big Krit dropped
And that’s just hip hop. You stating its a bad year for MUSIC is even worse…
Linkin Park, Maroon 5, Frank Ocean.. to begin with.
This is a great year for both hip hop AND Music as a whole.
agreed. ill say that mainstream hip hop or rap is the worst its ever been, but the MCs that arent on the radio/BET are making some pretty dope music
Childish Gambino Don’t forget that now.
Yo I swear to god every song I been hearing after Camp (Which was an above par album) is just getting better and better, I’m starting to wonder when he will peak because he is only getting better, since he recently started rapping I get a feeling he hasnt found his style yet, but once he does, I feel like hes going to be a lyrical problem….
agreed. although i think hes afraid to get on a track with Kendrick after what he did to that You Know Me beat on Look Out for Detox lol
gambino is nasty!
Love the Linkin Park album!
As a fan of any type of music (rock, dubstep, hiphop – you name it) I really wish there was a site where rock bands dropped new songs cuz it’s too hard to find your favorite type of rock these days unless you wanna bore yourself going through iTunes and stuff like that.
Hip hop is truly one of a kind with the way artists connect to fans and how they give us new music
That linkin park album is great, sounds like their old self
lol Well I can’t speak on anything that hasn’t came out yet so OBVIOUSLY I’m talking about the music that has been out. This is my opinion but no one on your list I really consider good music.
Slaughterhouse, great MCs and Lyricist, but has proved putting songs together not so great.
Kendrick is nice, realllllly nice but hasn’t put out enough music this year for me to be satisfied.
NOT A FAN OF AB nor SCHOOLBOY!!!!!
Lupe, that man is to caught up with hating hip hop that its affecting his ability to make music. Dude hella nice but hasn’t been giving it his all. He had Too much potential to be where he’s at today.
NAS…Haven’t heard the album yet but I’m not so hyped about his album. Most inconsistent rapper I ever heard.
GOOD Music they dropped a couple GOOD tracks, but really I’m suppose to be satisfied with 4 or 5 tracks in 7 months
CAN’T BELIEVE YOU MENTION 50 CENT NAME!!!!!!!!!!!
Krit, couple nice verse but not a FAN
YEa its all my opinion but I expect more out of 2012. I wanna Hear another Watch the throne, Jay or Kanye Solo Album, an Eminem album, a Cole Album, a FAB album, a GAME album…Give me some Epic collaborations this year. I didn’t watch the awards because AINT SHIT GOOD out. Epic albums can last you months and ok albums a week so …..ok I’m done. 2012 so far will not be remembered for anything! Except the gay ass Dynasty of Yung Money and Wack ass Ross.
i agree with what you said about slaughterhouse, but you cant say their mixtape isnt gona be fire… kendrick is releasing good kid maad city this year and that should be enough plus a few random tracks he drops….. people are getting spoiled when they hear a shit ton of wayne songs drop or when rappers who dont take time to craft their art drop maaad songs… k dot said he doesnt make songs with throwaway verses… everything must have a meaning to it, and i appreciate that much more than if he rapped about nothing and dropped 10 tracks a day…… you should really listen to control system and habits & contradictions (pineal gland, black lip bastard, bohemian grove- ab…. gangster in designer, druggys with hoes, hands on the wheel- schoolboy) ithink those’ll change yo mind……. dont sleep on food and liquor 2…. american terrorist III and bitch bad are dope……. life is good by nas is a must download honestly listen to no introduction and you’ll change your mind…….. GOOD music is ehhh now to me so ifeel you on that… and yea fuck 50 and krit is w.e……… fab and game are the most average rappers ever doeee
KRIT jus needs to switch it up a lil bit. hes too worried about fans saying he sold out or w/e. other than that hes one of the few new(er) MCs keepin Hip Hop afloat.
Murder by Numbers is pretty dope actually. when motivated Fif can make good ish
and GOOD Music are the only ones (besides the GOAT Young Khalifa Man) making tolerable mainstream shit. the radio may have beat the dead horse wit Mercy but its still nice nonetheless. and New God Flow is hard as fuck
name some krit tracks then.. i’m not challenging you or anything i just sometimes get off on the wrong foot with artists and i’d rather someone tell me their best shit so ican check it out…… and yea i agree about the tolerable mainstream lol cruel summer is gonna be a dope mix of kanye’s beastness (unless he tries to go too electro ._.) pusha’s and cyhi’s dope lyricism, 2 chainz’ trap shit, big sean’s mainstream appeal, hopefully some trippy shit from cudder…. and a few diamonds from common………… iknow imight get shitted on for this but i always wished drake had signed to GOOD instead of fuckin YMCMB…… ithink he would’ve evolved as an artist much better then he has on his fruity label… influence from ye, push, common, cyhi………… he’d have to rap his ass off to keep up with them… unlike when he’s around wayne, gudda, tyga and all that faggotbaggage
you lost any credibility when u said Nas is the most inconsistent MC. dumb fuck
another Watch Us Flaunt Our Money album? you can throw that on the cutting room floor. no thanks.
and ill say it again. the only tracks weve heard from Our House are radio singles. and apparently people forgot about songs like Cuckoo, Pray (Its A Shame), fuck every track on their first album is dope AND album quality.
Ab and Q>>>> your Top 5
with Lupe do what i do. when he starts talkin out the side of his mouth put on The Cool to drown it out
Fab mixtapes>Fab albums
The Documentary > every Game project since combined
LOL…You REALLY think NAS is consistent. Wow! I already explained how Nas been up and Down every since he Hov really got in the in another post so I’m not repeating myself. And you talking about Watch the throne was then just talking about money. You really have the nerve to talk about credibility…DID you listen to the album. No church in the wild, New day, Murder for Excellence, welcome to the jungle….I’m gonna stop there. Didn’t know those song were about money. Ummm… My top 5. Em, Jay, Kanye, Game and Fab (J Cole on his heels just too new to the game). People really shit on Game… Got one song for you. THROUGH MY EYES. and Yes MAYBE Docum was his best album but how many people have a better album then their first album…I mean come on son. Any no I am not a radio listener…Don’t really listen to mainstream songs at all so Ross and Wayne not even question. BRIAAAAN. Yes I am anticipating on some music that will come but I’m just saying I haven’t heard any classic tracks this year. I’m gonna give the tracks you said a listen to see whats up.
I’m gonna leave this with a quote from one of the greats.
‘They only know what the single is, and singled that out
to be the meaning of what he is about
And bein I’m about my business, not minglin much
runnin my mouth, that shit kept lingerin
But no dummy, that’s the shit I’m sprinklin
The album width to keep the registers ringin’.
yes i listened to Watch Us Give Each Other Dome once or twice. and that was enough for one lifetime. Frank Ocean was the highlight of that album.
clearly Nas fucked your bitch or something so ill just leave that alone.
thats one weak top 5.
thats all i have to say about that
Good shit. Post CW:SS, J is 3 for 3. Grew Up Fast, Visionz of Home, and now The Cure. How’s that for consistent?
this shit is hot.
Way too cold this that THERAFLU!!! Shit when’s the next mixtape? Hope he does this track at Lollapalooza next week. Bout to be a crazy concert! Too amped!
Cole never really disappoints.
J. Cole killed this shit
i expect a lil better from cole
Please shut the fuck up…
im lyrically better then cole no lie i spit that queens ish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqdEMkzr458&feature=plcp
You’re good; a bit above most average rappers… But if you wanna grow as an artist, you should start considering what you contribute to the game. From this one track, you come off as generic because it’s nothing new…. my opinion, since no one else seemed to give you the time of day.
i hear yu thx for listening bro,i feel one of my main contritbutions is my level of lyricism and flow i discuss multiple subject in my tracks from the struggle to gettin money all walks of life cuz thats wut i live,,this is a freestyle tho so its mainly punchinlines over subject matter,even so i feel the level im spitting from flow to lyricism is beeter then 80-90 percent of these weak rappers on yutube kiccking freestyles so that wut separrate me to be honest, thx for criticism if u hav ne tips lemme kno always lookin for ways to improve
i see everyone is talking nonsense rather then whats going on with this track.
first off J. Cole 1 and half ago comes out on the freshman list..Jae Millz voices his opinion on how he feels most of those rappers should not have been on that list and he doesnt know how Vado was not included. JCole later releases a track in his Any Given Sunday promo for This Sideline Story called “Heavy” the lines go as follows:
Alone in my zone, tell me don’t it sound stunning
Been f-cked the world but she just now cummin’
If I ever fell off I would hit the ground
I aint never been the one for fourth down
Aiming at a couple heads, b*tch I’m crown huntin’
Red dots cause a n*gga dread locks ß wayne got dreads
Jae Millz recently states in a interview that his recent diss track to Push T called Hearing Voices was intended to address everyone dissin and sneak dissin YMCMB …fast forward a bit around the same time a week prior rumors were online stating Cole got robbed or lost his jewelry… Millz makes a reference that damn sure sounds like he’s sneak dissing right back.. his lines go as follows:
Sucka’ ass n*gga
Neva moved a
brick you ole frontin’ ass n*gga
happened to them chains, say something about that n*gga ß rumor was cole recently “lost” his
Yous a peon, pissed off cause we
presidents & ain’t no cleons ßremember J Cole made tracks on the Dead Presidents beat.
and now Cole releases The Cure which has some lines towards the 3rd verse explaining the whole jewelry incident which sounds kinda funny cuz at first it seems like he thanks god he’s still alive? could have been making the reference to makin it out of NC but it could also have double meaning…3rd Verse to the
Cure towards the end
I don’t do it for the press im
blessed, I made it out..
Sitting on this plane my biggest
thing to complain about..
Some where between yesterday and
now, I done lost my jewelry..
Rollies, chainz almost lost my
coo but see..
I just left kids to don’t got
and F’ing thang
That got alotta F’ing problems
and a lotta F’ing pain
And here I go b*itchin cause my
jesus piece missing
Got a feelin housekeeping
finally caught a n*gga slippin..
Eyes wide open they just found a
pot a gold..
Now little Julio is somewhere
shining on you h*es..
But that’s how it goes, f*ck it
im still breathing
Like my lil n*gga jahiem we here
for a reason…
you be the judge…im just a good listener thats all.
You believe all that illuminati mess too, dont you?
WTF are you talkin about??? lol i swear you go left people go right…i simply pointed out the possible reasons for some of their bars. simply a THEORY smart ass, and for the record, i can give 3 shits about the illumanti
