This the type of s**t that make you wanna let go

Mixtape J. Cole feels freer and more natural. I have always liked the tapes more than studio albums because I felt they came from a real and raw place and this new track is in that vein.

This song hit me like a ton of bricks. I listened to it like five times yesterday and was focused on every single word, making sure I didn’t miss a thing. I don’t really need to say much because the lyrics speak volumes. Verse one:

“American hypocrisy, oh, let me count the ways
They came here seekin’ freedom
Then they end up ownin’ slaves
Justified it usin’ Christianity which saves
Religion don’t mean shit, there’s too much ego in the way
That’s why ISIS is a crisis
But in reality this country do the same shit
Take a life and call it righteous”

— J. Cole

Just let that marinate.
