NEW MUSIC: J. Cole. Yay or Nay? I'm Still On The Fence.

Download Link: J.Cole - The Warmup

So I've been hearing quite the buzz about some kid that went to St. Johns with me and just signed to Roc Nation. But I have NO CLUE who he is! And from the looks of things, a lot of Y.O.U. dont either. So partake in this video. It should fill Y.O.U. in just as much as I would. And then some..

While my friend KLEPONE and I are not signing off on him just yet, "Dreams" featuring Brandon Hines caught our attention. All I can say is that Drizzy might want to step it up before J. Cole takes all his limelight. I feel the comparisons coming. Tell me what Y.O.U. think.

Signing Off...

If you're clueless as to who Brandon Hines is, Stay Tuned Kids!

EDITOR'S NOTE: CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Yet further evidence that in this Mad Max-like wasteland of talent that mediocrity is the new "good" and that good is the new "great".

Sure the young homie reppin' "Fayettenam" (Fayetteville N.orth C.arolina slow poke) has an enormous amount of potential, however, the derth of viable candidates for the oh so coveted Hip Hop "throne" has created a largely internet based vacuum where after a good freestyle or 2 message boards and blogs fill up with dick riders all hailing the "flavor of the month". I mean, haven't we ALL been here before? Asher Roth? Kid Cudi? Charles "The Pink Punching Bag" Hamilton? Insert random overhyped MC's name here x______________________________________.

Listen, if Y.O.U. truly do think that J. Cole is the "future", then please do him the greatest favor and grant him the space to grow and mature into the artist that he is destined to be. The hype stops here. Livestyle is all about quality control my friends. Please make a note of it.
