yeah im sure the majors need all the money they can get on this release...... u do realise people that dont pay for music arent just going to go and buy the album because some sad ass nerd is reporting links. we are just going to go and find it somewhere else. you really got nothing better to do with your time? really think you are making a difference? i look forward to hearing you response to this.

Yeah, I know that. Doesn't mean I can't piss people off by making the leak harder to find than the Holy Grail... lol


lol youre an idiot.

Great album but I wish he didn't put some of those mixtape tracks on here.  Only other complaint is that J Cole's hooks all sound exactly the same

All in all, Cole absolutely 100% delivered exactly what I'd hope he would for what, two years now? This album completely lives up to the hype. He's obviously someone who's recorded so much music for this album and leaked A LOT of what didn't make the cut. When that happens, fans often get concerned that the leaked material will be better than the material kept for the album. Now that the album has been heard, I can confidently say Cole did the best job possible of keeping his BEST music for the album and also putting the best leaked tracks on the album as well.

A near classic for sure and probably album of the year.

I agree with most of what you said but I have to say that IMO Return of Simba is the best track he's ever done and would have been a nice track to open the album up with. The intro to that song (him talking about having to meet with jay) and then he just explodes over that classic beat. Song is just perfect in my eyes.

my review after listening to the album twice:

1. Intro - N/A
2. Dollar and a Dream III - 4.5/5
3. Can't Get Enough (feat. Trey Songz) - 4/5
4. Lights Please - 4/5
5. Interlude - N/A
6. Sideline Story - 4/5
7. Mr. Nice Watch (feat. Jay-Z) - 3.75/5
8. Cole World - 3.5/5
9. In the Morning (feat. Drake) - 4/5
10. Lost Ones - 4.5/5
11. Nobody's Perfect (feat. Missy Elliot) - 4/5
12. Never Told - 4/5
13. Rise & Shine - 4.5/5
14. God's Gift - 4.5/5
15. Breakdown - 4/5
16. Work Out - 3.75/5

BONUS TRACKS:

17. Cheer Up - 4/5
18. Nothing Lasts Forever - 3.5/5
19. Daddy's Little Girl - 3.5/5

very solid album throughout, Cole actually lived up the hype of his debut musically unlike Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean

this might even be better than WTT for me but I'll have to see which album I still bump in a few months, by far better than C4 though  8)

Dope album overall. After first couple listens I'd give it 4 mics. The track with Jay-Z and the following one sound out of place though, as if they were leftovers from WTT

The only song with a decent amount of replay value is "Dollar & A Dream III".

Come on thats gotta be a troll post. I usually dont involved in arguments and i probably wont respond after this but ure telling me Lost Ones is not a great song?

Definite contender for album of the year.

There you go. That's more proper terminology. "Dope". Words like "phenomenal" & "incredible" are being thrown around in a thread about music that isn't really anything special when you really listen to it. He's been making the same sounding music since he's hit the scene. I've seen no growth, no improvement.

Like somebody said earlier, "I don't know if this is better than 'The Warm Up'". Cole show no signs of progression, this is the best he will ever be.

Wait so if the song hadn't dropped 3 months ago, we would be allowed to call it phenomenal according to you? So if the song was phenomenal 3 months ago, it's phenomenal anymore because it's 3 months old? That makes no sense.

Anyway, I skipped most of J Cole's material so 90% of the album was new to me and even if I had heard the songs that leaked beforehand, that wouldn't make them any less dope.

It's all good though, to each his own.

Wait, so since Snoop's Doggystyle was the "best he would ever be", does that mean Doggystyle is not a classic? (I am not comparing Doggystyle to Cole World btw and I am not calling Cole World a classic).

No, an old "pretty good" (easy with that "phenomenal" word) song 3 months old, trying to be passed off as something he's just released has no replay value. To me it's an old track I'd skip because I'd rather listen to material I haven't heard.

Well you kind of answered yourself with what you said in the parenthesis. Cole World is not a classic. It likely won't even go down as album of this year. & as Snoop and almost every other mainstream rapper we've ever seen, you progressively start getting worse after your first album.

Doggystyle is a classic album. Cole World is a pretty solid/dope album. Snoop as his best produced arguably one of the greatest albums ever. Cole at his best produced an album people are excited about because of the hype but will be forgotten about shortly.

I mean, sure. There is a chance he gets better, but so far two street albums (he really tried hard on) & one studio album deep, he really hasn't given us anything that really sticks out that could be remembered long-term. & like I said, most rappers seem to be better earlier in their career rather than later.

See, this is why I dodge the leaked songs from official albums and mixtapes/street albums with teasers from the album. I wanna get that fresh album feeling from all the songs. Sadly, I couldn't wait with some tracks, and Work Out has been on repeat a couple of weeks now lol.


And so what if Cole hasn't "showed any progression" or doesn't "switch up his flow", he's still better and fresher than most rappers out.

Why are you prophesying about the man's future career? This is a discussion about his debut album. Whether he gets better or gets worse in the future has jackall to do with this thread.
