DESCRIPTION: In honor of Dreamville, I decided to take a look back at my introduction to J.Cole’s music his 2010 mixtape “Friday Night Lights”. This is truly an outstanding project from a concept standpoint. Cole thrives in the underdog role and his unconventional route to becoming the star we know today is highlight all throughout this tape. Not many are able to compete when Cole is motivated and hungry and this project is a prime example of why he is where is his today.
BEST SONG: TOO DEEP FOR THE INTRO
