SNEAKER-PIMP!

these names may ring a bell if you were in DC this past weekend for the sneakerpimp shoe showcase.. there werent as many official fly kicks as there couldve been..

and excuse the next statement but:
I HAD THE FLYEST SHOES ON IN THE WHOLE CONVENTION!! hahaha

BUT:
like 3 weeks ago i copped The Warm Up- a mixtape released by J. Cole. A rapper from North Carolina who is the first signed artist under Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. Honestly in my bold opinion, the mixtape was a gem. I thought to myself out of all the the freshman rappers, CH, Cudi, Wale, Blu, blah blah blah down the line, that J. Cole has something unique to offer.

As he took the stage I could not help but to dance and sing along with the lyrics ,but i noticed few heads bobbin or hands in the air.

I don’t know if it was because of low exposure of the crowd about this man, but he has a list of credentials. He graduated magna cum laude from college. That is something that as a rising senior in college i Can relate to. But it’s not all about just relating.

he outdid himself as he rapped a live version of his rendition of Last Call (kanye’s college dropout final track) and stole the show with “these niggas think they the shit and they ain’t even farted yet”

J. Cole should be a household name.
If he isn’t by the end of the year I give up on hip-hop.

they say hip-hop his dead?!

with the likes of listening to j. cole…
HIP-HOP MUST HAVE 9 LIVES!
