J.Cole has released his first tune of 2019 titled ‘Middle Child’.
The lyricist started teasing the record earlier this week and as promised, he delivered.
As the title insinuates, the song portrayed him reflecting on his status in Hip Hop’s current setting, saying his role was a connect between two eras.
He also declared himself as the greatest right now.
His words, “To the OGs, I’m thankin’ you now / Was watchin’ you when you was pavin’ the ground / I copied your cadence, I mirrored your style / I studied the greats, I’m the greatest right now.”
The popular rapper also dropped a few bars that were aimed at Kanye West.
His words, “If I smoke a rapper, it’s gon’ be legit / It won’t be for clout, it won’t be for fame / It won’t be ’cause my shit ain’t sellin’ the same / It won’t be to sell you my latest Lil’ sneakers,” He rapped referencing Kanye’s Twitter rants over Drake’s shots at his Yeezy 350 sneakers.
