Hip Hop has awaken from a coma
My Top 3 in that order would be Notorious B.I.G. , Big L , Jay-Z. But Cole is definitely getting there. Him and Kendrick (and other handful of artists) have definitely woke up Hip Hop from a coma. Cole delivers that flow that'll make you bop your head like you were ducking bullets or some type of spasm type s***. I always bump my head to his music. You're too hard on yourself. You have what it takes to be on that platform and to share that platform with great artists such as Jay and Nas. You've got the mentality of a winner. God Bless for the music you've blessed ME and the whole Cole World with.
P.S. You're production skills is sick! Keep that s*** up homie.
