Tonight in Music: J. Cole

Posted by Morgan Troper on Thu, Nov 25, 2010 at 12:37 PM


(Roseland, 8 NW 6th) Verse by verse, cameo by cameo, J. Cole has kicked up quite the buzz for an emcee without a full-length under his belt. Blessed by the gilded touch of Hova himself, J. Cole's much-delayed Cole World will command the FM airwaves in about a month (or a year, depending on who you ask) and will likely be the sort of breakthrough album that propels the North Carolina emcee into the hiphop stratosphere. But until that happens, the man who stole the show with a few lines on The Blueprint 3's "A Star is Born" (clap for him) just dropped the Friday Night Lights mixtape, which features "In the Morning," his collaboration with Drake that is the hiphop "Afternoon Delight" for early risers. These days J. Cole's motto might as well be "clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." EZRA ACE CARAEFF
