Leak of The Week: The Warm Up – J. Cole


It’s finally here my Dukes. J. Cole & Dreamville Records presents The Warm Up. It’s good to see that Lyricism, wordplay and all in between. This might sound like an over cosign but seriously this is one of the best pieces of music I’ve heard from a new artist in quite some time. After I bumped it Cole told me something and I’ll just relay the message to ya’ll.

Live with it, Dive in it man.” – Cole

Track list and link after the jump. Warm Up!

And J. Cole music is Live!
