This release is a smooth and thought provoking journey that has a lot of replay value. J Cole is a master at making cohesive albums and this one does not disappoint.
The production is simpler then most other releases out there, with less background noise to help show off the actual artist. Each beat still has good impact with the listener and is one of the reason a full listen through is no work at all.
The lyricism is strong, with J Cole using his flow and clever wordplay to tell the stories and educate in these songs. There is vivid imagery all the way through this project and the delivery is getting the words across to the listener rather than shouted at them, as the trends in rap might suggest.
Overall, with no features to cloud Cole’s performance. This will be another great release from another visionary artist that will reverberate with audiences for a long time.
