Starting over can be the scariest thing in the entire world, whether it’s leaving a lover, a school, a team, a friend or anything else that feels like a core part of our identity but when your gut is telling you that something here isn’t right or feels unsafe… listen and trust in that voice.
I don’t think people understand why I love Jermaine Cole so much. There are so many rapper out in the world that are so caught up in pleasing society, they only speak on topics that they believe will sell to the public; Drugs, sex, and money. J. Cole, steps out of the norm and raps about things that actually matter. He’s more focused on letting the children know that there is so much more opportunities in life, and you don’t have to be a rapper, or a basketball player, or a football player to be successful. Because his mother is German and his father is black, he can fit in anywhere and write from different perspectives, because he’s actually experienced it. His intelligence is amazing, I love the fact that he can intertwine his knowledge into his music. Have you ever just sat down and listened to him in an interview? If you haven’t I recommend you do, his intellect is motivating. When I first began listening to J.Cole, He was just somebody I enjoyed vibe'in to. When I began actually listening to the lyrics and analyzing his meaning I feel in love with his music, his mentality. I have never connected with a rapper like I’ve connected with J.Cole. His music has helped me through so many different situations, and I am forever grateful to him. J. Cole is my favorite rapper, and will always be because of his versatile style, his effect on the minds of the youth, and his mind blowing perspectives on the world.
