J.Cole is gonna kill himself with that no featured artist stunt. Dude could be big if he had a good singer on the hook of a single a la B.o.B.'s Nothin' On You or Airplanes. Hopefully his mind will change because the chorus of the songs I've heard is what's lacking.
I totally disagree and think that it is refreshing to see an artist not just go for the trend of getting the hottest R&B singer or overused rapper of the moment to make a guest appearance on his album. He is talented enough as an artist to hold it down on his own and I am glad to see he is passionate about making quality music instead of just going for sales with a million and one guest appearance.
