New Music: J.Cole “Who Dat”

We’ve seen Jermaine perform this twice already and earlier this evening, Funk Flex bombed away his street single. It’s not the final mix, but enjoy nonetheless.

  • Interscope Employee

    First couple comments probably listen to Gucci Mane and dat Wacka Flaka nigga.

    Fuck that! J.Cole did his thing. the production is so on point!! Elite & J.Cole

  • Nathaniel

    hmmmmm

    this won’t do cole. jay will be sending my nigga back to the lab for this one.

    this is a 1st single for your debut album yo…it’s time out for the raps about your mic skills and taking over the game. let’s get a real song concept. we know you’re capable.

    i think this is worse than all the joints on the warm up with hooks. cole is my nigga, but this ain’t gone do, lol.

  • Ac@pella!

    This song is cold…

    @Rhyme

    U crazy. Kill ya fuckin self…

    @Truth Will Out

    WTF have I been listenin’ to? U need to open up ur ear drums…Matter ‘fact, jus pop them bitches instead…

  • Sarcastic

    OMFG, JCole the Jesus Christ of HipHop, omg, he’s gonna save the entire world of hiphop with his perfect being and omg, i juss want to worship him and not listen to anything other than his praises, JCOLE = Jesus!!!!!

  • King JuggaNott

    This could be a fire ass Saints song……but we’re stuck wit the Yin Yang Twins song….I mean…eh.

  • http://www.twitter.com/pyth_powermove Pyth

    Jay DID Open The Superbowl This Song Might Be The Start Of A Big Marketing Plan For Cole… Just Sayin’

  • NuJEW

  • LBDII

    Nice to have some J.cole to listen to before I call it a night.

  • Dan

    Keep in mind this is not the final version. One thing I hope the improve on is the bass. When he performed it live, the song knocked. This leaked version doesn’t have that same feel.

    However, Cole stay killin niggas.

  • HawthorneFinest

    Meh.
    I like the beat……rather listen to This guy than fucken Coochi mane, wacka floka Lame, soulja girl, and Fake (drake).
    But yeah…I agree that the best new artist is Jay Rock and Nipsey Hussle.
    they out there grinding…this dude hasn’t even dropped a tape yet!

  • koa29

    @HawthorneFinest

    Why u sayin Drake = Fake? Dude has publicly said he knows he doesn’t have a hard life image, but the dude makes good music… IMO that’s all that matters. Kinda the same with Ross, but he lied, so it’s different…but Ross still makes quality music, you cant deny it

  • coldworld

    Nice!!!!!

  • illaDeuce

    You people are just too stupid. Motherfuckers need CD quality final version or nothing. When this things mixed its gonna be a beast and you guys are gonna break your necks over the bass, tryna tell me “this wont do” shut the fuck up. You dont even know if this is an official single, or a street single. Anyway, I like it.. jus sayin.

  • HawthorneFinest

    @kao29
    Drake = Garbage.
    and ross does NOT make good music.
    his 1st album was Koo, but then he fell waaay off.
    and I have no respect to artists who Lie just to make money.
    that makes them a bunch of Pussies!!
    Drake ain’t even as good as J Cole.
    anybody who thinks drake is dope is str8 out Gay!
    listen to the damn lyrics….fuck the beat & Hook!

  • yardie_ute

    OMG

    Fiyaaaaaaaaa bumboclaaat fiyaaaaa. Raw, unmixed, whatever this song is the straight bumborawseclaat fiya
    It sure beats “over” even in its current state.
    CD Quality ASAP.

  • http://wdthdigital.com WHO

    Eh maybe!
    the title is good though

  • H.N.I.C

    Seems like half the posters here just listen to beats no lyrics…go OD on Coochie man and all that other lame shit..this lil dude just spat three verses of straight fire ..and y’all are here hatin ..this is why music sucks today ..y’all are so hooked on dumb shit you cant even get with the good stuff right in front of you….

  • East

    ^
    thas the first thing that came into my mind when i heard that “im the oneeee”
    i might be reachin too, i just want j.cole to go in on drake for no reason.

  • that dude

    Can’t wait for the CDQ dirty version. The censorship takes so much from the song. Damn, this dude stay dropping jewels tho.. ok so Cudi got those melodies, B.o.B. got that southern musicianship, Lu has the conscious lyrical tip, but Cole has the RAP.. like, this is that pure fire RAP. This feels like late ’90s early ’00s shit… yesssss. Great street single.

  • blackberrykushed

    Fuck the unfinished beat and how high or low the vocals are and whether or not Mary Anne is Chapel Hill likes this shit on the radio. Dude crushed the verses with some subliminal and not so subliminal shots at Drake. He’s making his case that he can be that dude and dumb it down just a little bit while still keeping gems in there for the heads thats really listeing. Its really Jay Z 101 shit.

    I like Drake especially when he’s rapping. Might even buy his album cause I kind of like what he’s doing, think he seems like a good dude and I like to support talented artists. But Drakes got to be listening to this thinking “I just hope I can stay getting along with this J Cole dude.” Drake referenced 48 Laws to Power in one his better songs where he’s actually rapping: “Read 48 Laws if you never read it, thats one of the main reasons i’m level headed.” I haven’t read that shit but I’m sure one of those laws is staying away from confontations with dudes like J Cole and making sure they’re on your side.

  • apple juice

    ^^^^ i like this dude #shoutout to blackberrykushed

  • MiloD

    bitch i got that flame!!!!!
    no wacka or flopa
    cuz bitch i got that flame!!!

  • King JuggaNott

    Took a fucking break….gave this shit a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th listen….this shit is Hot. Nice…Nice…Keep up the good work. Now back to my fucking grind…..*Sigh*

  • llll

    This is SICK, i like the flow. Maybe u hate because its not a dirty and not finished version, just wait!

  • http://www.twitter.com/zarioonline mistah_zee

    j cole is the future like he lived his whole life backwards.

  • mike

    the album is a brick

    people talk about this first song

    wait and see/listen, this album will be major !

  • sheesh

    damn get off j. coles nut sack.. lets be real he has some good shit but this sounds like a failed attempt at a single.. yall niggas hypin him up for NO reason at all drake is just as good as him if not better.. if u disagree go listen to room for improvement and comeback season.. this shit is full of lukewarm punchlines tryin too hard to fit in

  • Che

    WTF people need to sort themselves out. Shit’s nice.

  • 106

    Jcole nice he killed that shit. Not trying to be nobody but himself we need the dirty version soon as possible though.

  • QUEENZ

  • doughboi773

    Over>>>>>who dat

  • SilkCityP

    This is not making the album!!! The beat is terrible, and the way he built the song is lackluster…. Come on Cole…. You working with Kanye & NO ID… wtf you got Elite making beats?

  • http://rapradar sd456

  • YYEY

    horrible mix…waiting for the full CDQ

  • JustSaying

    song was okay he is an okay dude. there are so many rappers I’m more interested in that people don’t talk about. Keep your ear to the underground.

  • http://WWW.g-ses.COM $es

    This is straight fire ! but u gotta be a hiphop lover to really understand why,he layers his figures of speech just right and delivery is nice.The beat kinda reminds me of takeover or the bassline? but i like it as rough as it is.Its not meant 4 commercial radio more like mixshows dj’s hour.Dope keep coming fam …..And its all friendly comp between him n drizzy ne ways.They gonna end up doing a lp one day watch on sum meth n red shit!Predictions…..

  • Da Business

  • maximosis

    The last person I would listen to when it comes to music is an Interscope Employee.

  • Cola (Every Hood’s A&R)

    HOT!! Way better than OVer. J.Cole 1-1, Drake 0-1

  • Really

    J.Cole is a beast and its this is a great song. Over isnt a bad song though the beat is crazy but this song is somewhat better. I like both of them. Cole reminds me of Nas

  • thebullfrog24

    Anyone who says this single is better than over is just one of those people who are trying to hard to be different.

    this song is garbage…everything on the warm up is better then this song.

  • Eric_Wright

    j. cole is nice but he has a lot to prove with all the hype and shit….
    i never seen RR re-post sum-thin like this none the less just for the PA version… seems weird
    like either one of yall is fucking j. cole, or you are definatley getting paid to show extra love to sum of these artist, thats your perogative but as a former journalist i would like to THINK YN would keep it fair and balanced….
    like i said cole is nice, but i think he over hyped, and he will have t prove me wrong, all you hip hop sites and jay and shit really set the bar high for this kid….

  • jayfuck

    this is the real shit not that em corny shit!!

  • c.j

    who that?is cole world nigga!!

  • young hov

    Dope..

  • Nick

    uhhhh this song is better then over by drake.. i wont get annoyed hearing this more then two times like over..

  • Sarcastic

    Yes i hate Drake so much, everytime i get a chance to mention his name, i do cus i dnt care about him that much, And omg, i fuckin’ love this song, JCole is the Jesus Christ of music and will sale millions…NO BILLIONS….NO KATRILLIONS wen his album drop cus he has chart topping singles on the charts and everybody knows his name and will purchase anything he puts on Itunes, why cus he’s Jesus Cole :D

    COLE WORLD!!! Kid is changing the game ..cole and laws!! watch out competition

  • Joe

    drake and j. cole are both tight as fuck, it is alright to like both artists. People who hate on this song are the ones too fuckin slow to understand the lyrics, every line of this song is on another fuckin level, most rappers couldnt put words together like this if they worked on it for years

  • Scully

    How do you spell “disapointing” ?

  • random

    coming from a die hard cole fan this song couldnt do it for me I cant blame him cuz if you spit real shit in a commercialized world no ones gonna listen he needs to switch up flows or its really gonna be a cold world for his record sales im still supporting this guy when the album drops but I wanna see if he could pull off some next shit with mixing real shit with commercial shit – random out

  • S.K.I.T.Z.

    wen j. cole and dis nigga drake gun put out a track or start throwin shots cuz theres to much of this shit talkin for the machine not to try n market this shit…real talk drake was scrait til he got wit Y.M. now he jus a cookie cutta ass nigga he gassed up and he aint even put out a album yet

  • S.K.I.T.Z.

    @Sarcastic Yes i hate Drake so much, everytime i get a chance to mention his name, i do cus i dnt care about him that much, And omg, i fuckin’ love this song, JCole is the Jesus Christ of music and will sale millions…NO BILLIONS….NO KATRILLIONS wen his album drop cus he has chart topping singles on the charts and everybody knows his name and will purchase anything he puts on Itunes, why cus he’s Jesus Cole

  • killacrack

    it was cool,hes just heating up right now getting his buzz ready.its hard for people to like you when your not going pop. his next track of course will be a lil more radio friendly.sorry no one raps to be broke so there will be a radio friendly track coming soon.

  • will

    bro drake has to be slow if he thinks J.Cole is looking to collab with him that 3rd verse the slight on the ignorant shit freestyle the dismissal of that comparison

    this guy is dissing
