Album Review: J. Cole’s (@JColeNC) Born Sinner

Unknown

 

 

On Born Sinner’s opening J. Cole announces “It’s way darker this time.” The first song “Villuminati” samples Biggie and basically introduces listeners to the concept of the album. Unlike his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story where he had to prove his talent, but on his sophomore album is where he was able to celebrate it while also showcasing his diversity.

Cole’s lyricism seems to flow effortlessly along with Born Sinner’s production, mainly because he produced majority of the album. Knowing what beats and instruments sounded great with his flow. On “Forbidden Fruit” featuring Kendrick Lamar, Cole borrows a sample from A Tribe Called Quest and places a simple bass guitar with the track. J. Cole’s determination to receive approval from Hip Hop legends like Nas and Jay-Z (Sometimes I brag like Hov), “Let Nas Down” we are finally able to his vulnerability about being shunned by Nas because of his previous work. This album is great, lyrically and musically, Cole’s ability as a producer and lyricist make you realize he can stand on his on without the help of Jigga.
