Video After The Jump
What clown said hip hip was dead? You can't kill an art form that's driven from the energy and love that's put into it by both the artists and the fans
No doubt there are going to be times fads pass through hip hop like mohawks and skinny jeans, but at the end of the day talented spittas and producers will bring back that real sh*t.
I typed all that just to publicly admit I've been sleeping on J.Cole
. You know, he was Jay-Z's
1st on Roc Nation
artist, blah blah. It kind of went in one ear and out of the other.
But I've recently realized the error of my ways. The man is the truth and a big part a rap's future.
On Friday (July 16) Cole came to Philadelphia
as part of the Heineken Inspire tour
. The show also featured legendary turntable King Jazzy Jeff
and R&B songstress Marshia Ambrosius
Cole did his thing and paid respect to Philly by bringing out Freeway
for a couple songs.
It was very interesting hearing and see the old Roc-A-Fella
on the same stage with Jay-Z's new Roc Nation MC.
We get to see J.Cole perform "Last Call
" before he brings Freeway out to perform "Roc The Mic
" and "Who We Are"
