  1. Every time I set this shit down for a few weeks and come back to it, it hits more and more different every time. TF kinda sorcery 🤣

  2. Like if we need a J.cole and Kendrick Lamar album
    i dont care if they are using AUTHENTICVIEWS D O T C O M in order to get views

  3. I don't know if you guys realize the significance of that ending where the white girl is buying a black girls face. Damn that part gave me chills. Such a deep meaning behind that.

  4. j cole is the realest rapper out there today him and kendrick n joyner n badass they better than drake lil yachty lil pump i'll choose em over anybody on any day ever

  5. Garbage. I like how he talks about real artists, when he gladly flaunts jewelry given to him by the fakest rapper Drake as a peace offering. Fuck off J COLE

  6. Bruh I done fell off myself, Im 24 now but used too bump Forest Hill Drive everyday when I used too walk to school, high as a kite. I started sleeping on Jermaine after I graduated and this the first song I’ve listened too since. I’m still confident enough too say he is better than Kendrick, that’s just my opinion tho

  7. To all those people who say”WHO IS WATCHING THIS IN JUNE OF 1929😣☠️🤡👊🥫🥩🥩🥚🍆🇲🇦” nobody cares.

  8. s?
    Niggas been counting me out
    I'm counting my bullets
    I'm loading my clips
    I'm writing down names
    I'm making a list
    I'm checking it twice and I'm getting 'em hit
    The real ones been dying
    The fake ones is lit
    The game is off balance
    I'm back on my shit
    The Bentley is dirty
    My sneakers is dirty
    But that's how I like it
    You all on my dick
    I'm all in my bag
    This hard as it get
    I do not snort powder
    I might take a sip
    I might hit the blunt
    But I'm liable to trip
    I ain't popping no pill
    But you do as you wish
    I roll with some fiends
    I love 'em to death
    I got a few mil'
    But not all of them rich
    What good is the bread if my niggas is broke?
    What good is first class if my niggas can't sit?
    That's my next mission
    That's why I can't quit
    Just like LeBron
    Get my niggas more chips
    Just put the Rollie right back on my wrist
    This watch came from Drizzy
    He gave me a gift
    Back when the rap game was praying I'd diss
    They act like two legends cannot coexist
    But I'd never beef with a nigga for nothing
    If I smoke a rapper
    It's gon' be legit
    It won't be for clout
    It won't be for fame
    It won't be 'cause my shit ain't selling the same
    It won't be to sell you my latest lil' sneakers
    It won't be 'cause some nigga slid in my lane
    Everything grows
    It's destined to change
    I love you lil' niggas
    I'm glad that you came
    I hope that you scrape every dollar you can
    I hope you know money won't erase the pain
    To the OG's
    I'm thanking you now
    Was watching you when you was paving the ground
    I copied your cadence
    I mirrored your style
    I studied the greats
    I'm the greatest right now
    Fuck if you feel me
    You ain't got a choice
    Now I ain't do no promo
    Still made all that noise
    This shit gon' be different
    I set my intentions
    I promise to slap all that hate out your voice
    Niggas been counting me out
    I'm counting my bullets
    I'm loading my clips
    I'm writing down names
    I'm making a list
    I'm checking it twice and I'm getting 'em hit
    The real ones been dying
    The fake ones is lit
    The game is off balance
    I'm back on my shit
    The Bentley is dirty
    My sneakers is dirty
    But that's how I like it
    You all on my dick
    I just poured something in my cup
    I've been wanting something I can fee

  9. Hell J Cole you got my 44 yr old ass on one. I been listening to this 3-4 times a day. Even got turnt at work with the buds in. Lol. You are the shit bro, keep goin!!

  10. I'm glad I listened to this more than once. I didn't appreciate the words. Dude is a lyrical genius, he can literally paint a picture with words.

  11. Yo will I feel weird like it’s all just a simulation but will I hear you’re Music I don’t feel like it’s all a simulation

  12. Some person said he doesn't have anything fancy no wrapper does there being hypebeast with all the shoes an supreme
