J. Cole – Higher
Jay-Z's protege, J. Cole, released the mixtape Friday Night Lights recently and it's pretty stellar. It's also pretty lengthy at 20 songs. That's why I'm here to spoon-feed you a stand-out track in "Higher".
As you could expect over 20 songs J. Cole explores a bunch of different beat and rhyme styles. "Higher" popped out to me immediately because of it's bounciness and jubilance. It just feels like a damn good time. Lyrically, he's not laying down anything profound, but this how love songs go in J. Cole's world. It also feels vaguely like a Lupe track which always scores points in my book.
