    Long live the Idols may they never be your rivals, BIG was like Jesus HOV wrote the Bible…

  • JayBird

    Born Sinner is straight fire. J. Cole definitely earned the title of having the album of the year, the only person who could change that is Drake when his album drops 9/17 but even then I still doubt it would be better than Cole’s album. And words can’t even describe how great Nas’ flow is on this record. Great week for hip hop.

  • Word

    That was beautiful. Ahhhh man! Cole fucking world. I don’t care what none of y’all haters say no more. Nas blasting Born Sinner so the critics and naysayers can have their opinions. Fire

  • yourstruly

    That was legendary, the torch has been passed from Nas to Cole now baby!!!

  • the brain trust

    No other genre gives you such drama, or has such great stories created through music.

    Nas absolutely bodied this.

    What a year we’ve had in hip hop.

    This is awesome. I literally had a feeling go through me that i haven’t felt since I was a kid and new music came out.
    Happy for Cole finally getting an official co-sign from a legend. Cole is probably Bittersweet that of all people, it came from Nas first.

  • sharp

    damn talk about getting the chills :0 mad props for nas to come show why hes one of the GOATS he deffinitly needed another verse. Im just happy for j cole to have his time to shine its like hes always down to give praise to others waiting on his turn….its like jay z said “i got my shades on waiting for the sun to shine my way”…

  • ECU

    AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!! When I heard this I too felt something. I loved the regular version, but this remix is BANGINGGG!!!!!! This is history right here. We’ll be able to look back on this in 10 years. I smiled the entire time I heard this song. I really hope J. Cole outsells Kanye, but even if he doesn’t he is still a winner in my book. This man is so talented, and he always gives great messages with his music!!!!!!!!

  • Nasss

    Ear orgasm

  • Tev Milli

    A wonderful Saturday 4real, shit this was amazing….

    great time for hip hop PERIOD. I feel things are turning a corner. kendrick, cole, let’s see what wale has in store for us. #newlegends

  • RapReal

    Holy shit, “Nas Broke My Mic Down”

  • Buddha

    Nas said he wasn’t feeling Work Out….

    J Cole. responded humbly by putting out Let Nas Down….

    Nas feels the respect and feels the new album, and gives JCole love on his track, in a way only Nas could do.

    Our WHOLE CULTURE could learn from this… Being humble doesn’t mean saying you’re humble, it means showing you’re humble, and great things come of it.

    J. Cole not only did he make Nas proud but he made his fans and the real hip hop/rap community proud good have artist like him around great music from great people more love to Nas and Cole. And one day there should be a Nas, Cole, and Kendrick album but thats for another time and day for now today is yours Cole enjoy hope you get this message.

  • Tbones

    The Jay Z Dickriders YN and his cohorts have exposed their feminine side again. How the heck is a Jay post with fewer comments about his track list be the no 1 post ahead of a dope ass Nas verse in response to a JCole track with triple the comments of Jays. Its only the fools up in here that can confidently do that shit and act like they doing shit right. I will go out on a limb and say the only reason this is no 2 is cos its a J Cole remix n hes on the lable of their god Jay. LMAO.

  • Cheese

    @Tbones
    That’s YN for you. Dude has this little kid grudge against Nas. I remember him putting Distant Relatives as the worst album of 2010. YN swallows Jay everyday. That’s something that you can definitely count on.

    @JayBird…

    Don’t even mention Drake for the album of the year, lyrically he’s weak and Started from the Bottom was trash, how is working in the supermarket starting from the bottom? How he won that Grammy over Nas baffles me….

    Jay-Z will have album of the year, even though I’m a Cole fan, Jay will come out on top this year.
