Well it appears J. Cole wasn’t playing around yesterday when he jumped on Twitter and asked fans for some beats. “Feed me beats. Everything gettin murdered,” he tweeted out, and barely 24 hours later we’re blessed with just that, some new heat.
Out of nowhere, Jermaine decides to tackle Nas and The Bravehearts’ hit instrumental “Ooochie Wally” for his latest freestyle “Album Of The Year,” which is accompanied with a new video as well. Serving as his first release since K.O.D, Jermaine delivers a 2-minute lyrical onslaught that finds him rapping about having the “album of the year,” making business deals, and signing Bas & J.I.D to Dreamville, among other things. He even calls out young rappers in the process, spitting, “Lil’ rappers, I love you, but you ain’t shit ’til you got offers in Prague.”
To coincide with the release, J. Cole also announced that he’s reading a new mixtape as well called The Off Season, which we presume this will end up on. He says that will be dropping before The Fall Off album. Check out the Simon David-directed clip (below) and let us know what you think! Stay tuned for more.
Don’t want to fuck up my vibe
Let’s end it on a positive note, come see me live
KOD, album of the year, undebatably
My cadence be the greatest we’ve seen since the late MC who’s name was The Notorious
Dreamville stacked like the Warriors
Winning back to back
Next up to bat is my nigga Bas
After that Jiddy-J.I.D
That’s that New York City kid plus ATL
Me, I’m from the ‘Ville but I know them towns well
Before I had a deal I was givin’ niggas hell
Now I’m givin’ niggas deals and they givin’ niggas hell
