Hey man if that's how you feel and you don't care (it's couldn't care less btw) whatever. If that's the J. Cole fan you're gonna be don't pay me no mind but your opinion isn't the mandated priority all fans should have just cuz you don't care.
The summer half way done. Cole dropped the ball on it. If this is something you don't want to discuss cuz he messed up as far as grabbing that opportunity fine. Don't mean his career is over.
You must be joking about bringing up over saturating the market and J. Cole. He is the farthest thing from that at this point in his career. Dude is on a mixtape a year schedule. I know I didn't say ANYTHING about dropping a single every week. So maybe you're confused arguing on a tangent. I'm talking about releasing a project. That single every week shh don't even bring you proper buzz to improve your standing. Just wasting lyrics. So you can miss me complaining about that bs.
I don't know how you could claim to be a fan and then say you wouldn't even remember if Cole held it down with a memorable summer. You remember when Jay was doing it though right? Like I don't even know what type of point you're making by saying that. If you don't care about dude being successful go ahead and be that type of fan. You keep talking like you do not understand. If dude dominates in any season that DIRECTLY translates to a great album. We all know what type of artist he is so it's not like these other rappers gaining popularity with weak music. You on some afraid of fame shh right now, like Cole just dropping good music without the praise should be good enough. That's how he'll get dropped.

FOOHWTBS man. As if we're not in a J. Cole thread.
Clearly you did not comprehend my point about J. Cole and the over-saturating of music today. In no way shape or form did I remotely even mention that Cole was over-saturating the market.
I don't understand how Cole "dropped the ball" at all this summer. The man is TOURING with RHIANNA and PROMOTING his upcoming album right now yet he dropped the ball because he didn't drop a mixtape when YOU wanted him to?! Just think about how ridiculous that sounds. Like someone said earlier everyone has a degree in marketing and promotion nowadays. SMH
Its funny you mention Jay who is my favorite artist in any genre of music. No I do not remember what summers Jay had on lock. Jay usually dropped a single in the summer before his album in the fall or winter. The only time I remember him maybe having multiple songs in the summer was Girls Best Friend off the Blue Streak Soundtrack and Hey Papi off the Nutty Professor 2 Soundtrack dropped. And yeah I never once thought to myself "wow Jay is really holding the summer down." So nah I don't remember at all and when I look back or reflect upon my favorite artist I think about the great body of work he has with his albums not what summer he held down.
"Holding down a summer" means nothing. Producing good/great albums and having a great body of work means everything.
This. People need to stop acting like A&R's and let artist do their thing. The whole Cole Summer thing is not that serious and it won't make or break his album, plus whats a Cole summer when it's a Cole World?
