It never ceases to amaze me, the way n*ggas can come up with their own "factual" "flawless" analyzation of an artist's work and career.

I think social networking works great for a lot of people, others...not so much. I don't follow a single person on twitter, on any of my accounts. If it's something worth seeing by a celeb, some blog, forum, etc... usually post it.

I agree with him, let your work speak for you. All that extra "look at me, I'm the greatest, ima say and do whatever to get attention" (on Twitter) approach is weak. I actually shut down my account cause the sh*t started to get lame.

Also, when I heard this I thought two things: 1) I agree. 2ndly) Kanye.

He shouldn't let that stop him from being on twitter. Artists who have a good connection with their fans on social media do well.

Dude is boring anyway....he aint got nothing hip, slick, or wise to say in his interviews so nobody expects him to be on Twitter with the "cool kids" anyway.
I can't believe i'm doing this but

cole is hella weak just like cassidy, should've stayed on his mixtape tip, but that was weak too. he says the n word too much for me and I'm black, it's just annoying how often he uses that word. i use the n word but not every sentence smh you gotta sound more intelligent college cole! uneducated sounding isn't cool. And ford escorts? Come on Son! you rap like the year they was made. Straight up I'll tell you.

inclined to agree... overall isn't that what twitter is anyway..I was on it heavy for a hott sec..it was cool for a hot minute..then I noticed the isht is attention whoring at its finest...worse than facebook
This. There were some cool and interesting tweets and a few Rappers are actually interesting to follow but most of the sh*t is not tolerable and mad annoying.

Cole speaks the truth on this one.

Friday Night Lights is a mixtape, not a album. Lots of rappers drop hyped up mixtapes or get hype elsewhere. Doesn't mean they gonna sale as much as J.Cole did. They won't unless they achieve a female fan base. All the hype that Krit and Gibbs have built for themselves and it won't achieve much, sells wise, unless they pander to the females on their single (like J.Cole) and even then it still might not work since neither have s3x appeal or even enuff game to make up for it.

And "Work Out" is the primary reason his album sold what it sold.
n*gga you are retarded. Learn grammar, then talk.

your using twitter for the wrong reasons, if your main purpose for leaving is based on what other n*ggas is doing. you supposed to be connecting with YOUR fans. dumb move. guess he got the recipe for success outside of social media. good luck.

fu*k outta here, this is coming from a dude it took 6+ years to gain a buzz and had to transition to a pop release , dude knows nothing about promotion. I'm not even on twitter, but its' clear it's a huge marketing tool and needed in this time, when his buzz continuously drops (as this is also the dude who speaks multiple times about not being recognized by the media) , he'll run back.
hate hate hate

cole world was a good album, if he put some warm up sh*t, it woulda sounded like a mixtape

cole never used twitter like that in the first place, be mad he spoke the truth about twitter f*gs

I feel where he was coming from, but like anything its all in the manner in which you use something and in this day and age, your presence (or lack of) on the Internet and/or social media can make or break you, sad to say. He could have used it sparingly, saying certain things that didn't come off as attention whoring or whatever that his fanbase would have appreciated. The old ways of simply " just letting the music speak for itself" is not going to work anymore, especially not with the fickle young generation of music fans where if don't feel some form of connection with their current favorite artist they ditch them quick and move on to the next.
