And I love that Fauntleroy is somewhat in the public eye now. He’s found success as a songwriter, working hits like “No Air” by Jordan Sparks and “Suit & Tie” by Justin Timberlake. But now it seems his name is everywhere! He’s definitely someone whose brain I’d love to pick.
J. Cole released a song called “Let Nas Down” from his upcoming album, Born Sinner. On it, he talks about —duh— letting down Nas, one of the greatest rappers of all-time. Help him get happy again.

J. Cole released new music today, just two weeks—the release date was moved up to June 18, same day as “Yeezus”—before his new album is set to hit stores/iTunes/etc. “Crooked Smile,” which features TLC, will be on “Born Sinner” along with “Power Trip,” “Miss America” and “N***az Know.”
Lyric Video: “Power Trip,” J. Cole feat. Miguel (2013)
This new trend of producing lyric videos is very interesting to me. Why do labels take the time to create creative videos surrounding just the lyrics? Do they make the anticipation greater for official videos? Do official videos live up to that hype?
Regardless, this is the first one I’ve ever posted and it’s mostly because I love this song so much. “Power Trip” is J. Cole’s first single from his upcoming sophomore album “Born Sinner,” which will hopefully be out this summer.
