After getting fans hyped earlier this week, J. Cole kept his word and released his “surprise” album yesterday called KOD, which if you were unaware stands for 3 acronyms including Kings Overdosed, Kids On Drugs & Kill Our Demons. The 12-track project is receiving great reviews thus far, and is filled with several standout records, including “KOD,” “1985,” & “Photograph” to name a few, but another track that’s been getting a lot of attention lately is this song called “Motiv8.”
Read as “motivate,” Cole hops on this self-produced beat and raps about being motivated to get the money, something he repeats throughout the song & chorus. The song even samples the 1995 classic “Get Money” chorus from Junior Mafia.
Take a listen to the lyrical onslaught and sound off in the comments (below). KOD available now on iTunes.
I can't have no sympathy for fuck niggas
All this shit I've seen done made my blood thicker
Spill promethazine inside a double cup
Double up my cream, now that's a Double Stuff, yeah
Please don't hit my phone if it ain't 'bout no commas
Keep the peace like Dali Lama, big body Hummers
Backin' out the parkin' spot and though the law be on him
He exempt, Shawn Kemp, he keep that .40 on him
