The Warm Up’s definitely one of my favorite mixtapes.
“Politicians holl’n ‘bout problems but I ain’t gon’ vote,
Keep talkin’ ‘bout change; still we floatin’ in the same old boat,
So tell me how I’m supposed to feel when the president spoke,
When he ain’t never had to struggle, ain’t never been broke,
Ain’t even roll through the ghetto, ain’t never been close-
Trustin’ this government’s like trustin’ the devil in oath,
A rebel with quotes”
That’s my favorite bit from this song, I think I actually posted the lyrics on my Tumblr a while back too haha.
I swear J. Cole is best new jack rapper of the new generation. I can’t ever remember getting excited about a new rapper since Jeezy and Lupe came out in like ‘05. I mean Drake, B.o.B., KiD CuDi, Wale, etc. I have likes and dislikes about each one, but J. Cole is seriously the first new cat that I can seriously just say “that dude is ill!”
