Listened to some J.Cole... I'm voting Drake

If you understood the underground like SUPER underground rappers and producers you would see why. As a producer you would have heard a million J.Coles from 2005-now. When i heard him rap i was like eh,he's cool. When i heard that he made his own beats i frowned cus everything i heard him on is lack-luster. If you think J.Cole is that hot, go on Futureproducers.com and see how many J.Coles you get. If he keeps this hype up and gets bigger and stuff he can probably do somethin hot,but right now....i wouldn't put money on him.

pretty much my sentiments. I started listening to jcole because of this thread. My favs include a dollar and a dream, I get up, Til Infinity, and some others. He is good but there are so many rappers out there like him...I don't understand why he's getting so much hype.

Drake is a better technical rapper, he has a better flow, is wittier, and he can sing. Yeah he's getting mainstream but that just means he's doing it right. With wayne going to jail, this is the time for drake to come into his own.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

We had the same pole on Liveagl.com
www.liveagl.com/question-of-the-week-drake-or-j-cole/
and J. Cole came out on top...but personally, I think Drake is a better all around rapper..

and PEOPLE..please don`t be discouraged by his latest songs..understand that he is being "featured" on the "commercial" songs, I'm not Stan Lee'n but listen to his upcoming album before you're conclusion...

i understand where yall are coming from cause before i heard of cole i was bumpin super hard to comeback season and room for improvement, drake can spit hard as fuck when he wants
but i think cole got a way of expressing himself and telling his story thats raw and delivery is on point
yes their are alot of undeground artist that do this well but they dont have mainstream appeal and have trouble coming on a commercial song
tahts why i find cole so good, he can come hard on any type of beat,and produce his own shit so you know his albums are gonna be sick because he knows exactly what he wants and how to deliver it

in my opinion cole is way better but drake is still sick , apart from we like herrr and we like herr tooooo

To me its the same as Nas vs Jay.

Cole will be alot like Nas, highly regarded as a sick MC, but will not achive as much sucess as drake(like Jay).

Cole is the better rhyme spitter, but Drake is the better artist. And who is better is far from a hands down decision either way. You could argue that drakes ability(or willing) to dumb down for mainstream sucsess, gives him the edge based on versatility.....or not. =)

I cant believe this is even being debated right now.
DRAKE > J.COLE.

i think they are both dope btw.

I thought that drake would get old after a while but affter listening to
the songs that got leaked out from "thank me later" he still got it.

lmao this shouldnt even be a competition. drake is a better mainstream artist cause he writes simp ass lyrics. j. cole on the other hand is actually an MC. the man writes some crazy rhymes. drake on the other hand is more appealing to more people, yes but its the same shit over and over. if you people don't see this you obviously havent "listened" to cole, only heard his music.

If you think drake is better than j. cole, try again faggot

why do you think drake is the more popular in the mainstream rather than j. cole?

because j. cole actually writes shit that makes you think. theres a reason why drake is huuuuuge while nas, talib kweli, random dudes like that are not. because america is dumb as fuck and listens to music that doesnt challenge their minds

I dont understand why people say J. Cole's lyrics are on a higher level than drakes. Their both equally easy to understand. Dont fucking say i dont listen to cole either. I probably played "the warm up" as much as "so far gone" if not more.

Im not trying to bring in artists and saying whos lyrics are better, but if you listen to wale's lyrics, those ones you actually have to understand.

Can you explain to me what he means by "Paint a picture and show the deaf what it's like to listen"? Doesn't really make sense to me, how could you paint a picture that could show a deaf man what it's like to be able to hear? Second line is dope tho.

Thanks.

I INTERPRET it sort of like a analogy, this proves what was said about how his lyrics make you think much more then Drake's. Again, my interpretation.
