To this day J. Cole is arguably one of the best lyricists in the game, and he’s proving that early into 2019 with a fire new single. On Wednesday night, the Dreamville Records founder dropped “Middle Child,” a self-reflective anti-beef track. In the tune, Cole points out he’s in the middle of two eras or “little bro and big bro all at once.” And shows love for the younger generation of rappers, including 21 Savage and Kodak Black, with nothing but support in his lyrics. He also takes time to shout out other contemporary rap greats, like JAY-Z and continues the idea that rap beef isn’t necessary in his verse about Drake… It only makes sense for a rapper who’s seen his last three albums go platinum without any features to speak on his rap game dominance, and how he doesn’t sweat the competition, noting that he’ll “make sure that the real gon’ prevail.” To hear Cole’s full track head to Billboard.com. Until next time, for Billboard News, I’m Jordyn Rolling.
