Sky is one of my absolute favorites in the game. With that said, his version isn't ever in the same league as what Cole dropped today. He murdered this.
I think I'm just gonna stop reading folks comments about him cause the majority of them are crazy as hell. If this song bores you, then you don't have a pulse.
Something possessed my wife to download the Kendrick Lamar album. Talk about boring. Dude almost made be crash the whip. ASAP Rocky? Come on. I tried to listen to a Currency song to see what the hype was. He's awful. Just talking. Most of these cats just talk, and about the same sh*t. Cole spits and has variety, but he's boring. I don't understand the hate.
Good post, understand where you are coming from, but what variety are we talking about with respect to Cole. With the exception of a few outstanding tracks, Cole seems to lack any sort of authority on a track, like he;s not even convinced about what he's rapping about, he put himself in this lane that he is authentic hip hop, so its almost as if he feels he has to do that which is why so much of his music, from the flows, to the voice, sounds the same, and is forgettable, not in "his music is trash" forgettable, but in a "well hes alright" forgettable.
I can obviously see why people like Cole, and he has put in the work so props to him for that, but we havent seen anything remotely new or interesting from him in a while bar a dope track here and there, and thats why people think he's boring. He;s not bad by any means, he's a good rapper, but I don't see anything more to him currently than just bein a good rapper IMO.
