“Trouble”: Review Of J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’

By | 89 Comments

The trouble with sophomore albums isn’t so much about timing – the old adage that artists have a lifetime to write their first record and just a year or two for the second – as it is the difficulty involved in re-branding an origin story, or conversely, establishing a new narrative arc on which to build.

Notable Quotable – J. Cole On “Born Sinner”

By | 9 Comments

"Yeah, this music shit is a gift But God help us make it cause this music business is a cliff I got a life in my grip, she holding tight to my wrist She screaming: "Don't let me slip" She see the tears in my eyes, I see the fear on her lips True when I told you: "You the only reason why I don't flip and go insane" My roof in the pouring rain You knew me before the fame, don't lose me the more I change You Just grow with me, go broke you go broke with me I smoke you gon' smoke with me Woman's curse since birth, man lead her to the hearse I go Bobby you go with me damn Listen here, I'll tell you my biggest fears You the only one who knows them Don't you ever go expose them This life is harder than you'll probably ever know Emotions I hardly ever show More for you than for me Don't you worry yourself I gotta do this for me They tell me life is a test but where's a tutor for me Pops came late I'm already stuck in my ways Ducking calls from my mother for days Sometimes she hate the way she raised me but she love what she raised Can't wait to hand her these house keys with nothing to say" For all the ups and downs J.
