J. Cole "Therapist" — a freestyle over "Victory" circa 2002/03.
With J. Cole's takeover of the Chi tonight, and in general with the new critically acclaimed album, Born Sinner, I felt it most appropriate to take it back with an old, rare freestyle from Cole for an edition of #OldSchoolSundays.
Two takeaways from this video:
1. It's very 2002 — 240p video quality with J. Cole rocking a tall tee. I bet he would be the first one to laugh at the attire and the lil dance he puts down before rhyming.
2. A glimpse at J. Cole's skill that has now come to full fruition some 10 years later. Classic production. And one that I think would be a fun revisit for Cole in 2013. Ya know, just for fun.
As mentioned above, J. Cole's in the Chi tonight as his "Dollar & A Dream" Tour continues. I feel like everyone in the city knows he's at the House Of Blues in an hour or so, but if you catch this at posting time, watch this while you get ready, then head downtown.
Born Sinner in stores now; the new "Let Nas Down (Remix)" out yesterday featuring the one and only Nas.
