At this point in the year, every man on planet earth struggles to make it through the work day. The Lebronathon has come and gone. It’s still too early for fantasy football so discussion of the actual season is definitely out of the question. And every single highlight on ESPN revolves around baseball. So with no fantasy trades to propose, or 87 yard kick off return clips to watch and get us over that 3:00pm wall at work, one must do a little soul searching to find a way to stay awake. Luckily music never takes a break.
Premeditated Murder- J. Cole
Premeditated Murder; J. Cole’s latest release since “Who Dat” gives J. Cole fans something to hang their hats on. Amazing track, and arguably better lyrics. Aparently the Fayetteville rapper hasn’t skipped a beat since The Warm Up. With mixed album reviews from Thank Me Later and Attention Deficit, Cole seems to be in a prime position to possibly pull off the best freshmen album debut of the trio (Drake, Wale, and J.Cole). “Cole World” is due to drop October 26. Guess we’ll soon find out.
More About Nothing- Wale
After the long awaited“Attention Deficit” arrived to mixed reviews, Wale has been under the radar to the say the least. Well August 3rd, he looks to pull inspiration from The Mixtape About nothing, the album many dubbed, mixtape of the year. His next project titled “More About Nothing” is right around the corner and has advid Wale listeners impatiently waiting. Just the other day, he tweeted “I think I wrote one of the best songs of my life… and its only two verses #moreaboutnothing.” Can’t wait to hear it.
