It’s the pairing you didn’t know you wanted until you got it. Benny The Butcher and J. Cole form the ultimate tag team on “Johnny P’s Caddy.” The two drop a video for the song, that came out of nowhere will likely be on a constant loop for many. Griselda and Dreamville make a great alliance, don’t they?
J. Cole continues to dish out videos from his stellar album The Off-Season. “Applying Pressure” finds Cole traversing through New York with plenty of bars and even showing off some of his dance moves.
The reception for J. Cole’s “The Off Season” has been a warm one and the North Carolina emcee treats his fans to a video for the second track off the album “a m a r i.”
J. Cole will drop The Off-Season on May 14 and gave us a taste of what’s to come with “Interlude.” With the album right around the corner, Cole releases a short documentary on the process of making the album titled “Applying Pressure.” It’s a unique look into the creative process and life of J. Cole and a perfect appetizer before the album drops.
It’s the return of Jermaine Cole. The North Carolina emcee announced that he’ll drop The Off Season on May 14 and warms up with “Interlude” to hold us down for the next few days.
In the midst of the chaos, J. Cole drops a stream of conscious song titled “Snow On Tha Bluff.” But it’s not necessarily what you may expect as Cole doesn’t so much talk about the current climate. Rather, he addresses Chicago rapper NoName and wonders aloud if he’s doing enough.
You’ve heard the song all week with the NBA season beginning and now you get a matching set of visuals from the Dreamsville squad off of the Revenge of the Dreamers III project as J. Cole, J.I.D., Bas, Earthgang and Young Nudy go retro with “Down Bad.”
After dropping a new song on us for the first time in sixteen years, Gang Starr is back with a video for “Family and Loyalty” featuring J. Cole. Directed by Fab 5 Freddy, clips of the late, great Guru are weaved into a set of visuals where DJ Premier and Guru’s son are dropping jewels off to friends and family while J. Cole can be scene delivering his verse inside a basketball gym.
Although Guru is gone, he will never be forgotten. The legacy of Gang Starr will live forever and DJ Premier has preserved that memory and extended its reach into 2019 with a brand new song titled “Family and Loyalty” that finds previously unreleased Guru vocals over DJ Premier production with a touch of today as J. Cole blesses the song with his presence.
“I never lost faith, or wavered. I still felt it inside of me, it just happened to be nine years later (after Guru’s passing)” Premier says. “We all want the things we want right now, but I am a patient guy. I hung in there and I just kept believing.”
It’s quintessential Gang Starr brought to the masses and J. Cole appearing on the song gives it a very current feel that vibes with the classic Gang Starr sound.
“When it comes to this generation of emcees, ones that are lyrically on the level that Guru was on and someone that he would want to work with; Cole is that guy” Preemo confidently asserted. “When Cole heard the record he got the chills and knew it was a classic.”
Fresh off of Revenge of the Dreamers 3 comes the video for “Sacrifices.” J. Cole, Earthgang, Saba and Smino all represent on
