Rapper J. Cole just released a new freestyle called “Album of the Year” with a WorldStarHipHop exclusive video in which he raps over Nas’ “Oochie Wally” beat. The title is in reference to his record-breaking album KOD which he declares “album of the year/undebatably.” He also takes a moment to call out hypocrisy with America’s treatment of drug addiction: “Now Billy mama want the judge to pardon his addiction / How many black addicts that got caught up in the system / With no sob stories on your prime-time television / I can smell a blatant contradiction.” But then he switches gears, comparing himself to the Notorious B.I.G. “My cadence be the greatest we’ve seen since the late M.C. / Whose name was the Notorious,” and then, finally, a plug: “Let’s end on a positive note / Come see me live.”
The YouTube video also includes a statement from Cole that appears to announce more to come: “The Off Season coming soon … All roads lead to The Fall Off.” Watch the full video above and stream the song below.
