J. Cole-The Cure

We haven’t had any solo material from Cole since the two isolated drops in late Feb/early March of this year, and he’s back on the scene with some raps over a remixed (and frankly, improved) version of The Throne’s Lift Off.

There’s a little hunger back in Cole’s voice here, with his raps opening on the arrogant, ‘I’ve made it’ tip before transitioning into some retrospective ‘come-up’ rhymes, and going back and forth for the rest of the track. The key here is his work on the production, which slows down and dilutes the overly-positive style of the original Lift Off and makes it significantly more tolerable as a result. A solid comeback for Cole, and let’s see if he can keep up some momentum for the rest of the summer.
