J. Cole's incendiary freestyle on the L.A. Leakers has ramped up the excitement ahead of "The Off-Season."
J. Cole's The Off-Season is upon us, and with the big release only a few days away, the Dreamville lyricist has been in the midst of a pre-game rollout. As such, he actually came through to deliver some bars for the L.A. Leakers, who have been steadily doing their due diligence to ensure that the people are well provided. In that regard they have succeeded immensely today, holding it down with J. Cole's first radio freestyle in years.
While it seemed apparent that Cole was in game shape ahead of The Off-Season, there remained a bit of uncertainty as to how his confidence would manifest. Evidently, it seems as if Cole is simply hellbent on leaving little doubt of his status as an elite emcee. Over the chosen backdrops of Souls Of Mischief's "93 Till Infinity" and Mike Jones' "Still Tippin," Cole proceeded to stage an absolute clinic, showing his handle of basically every quality an emcee should aspire to have; lyrics, flow schemes, pacing, cadence, self-awareness, and charisma, the list goes on.
