THE CLIMB BACK
OVERALL RATING (⭐⭐⭐⭐)
J. Cole sounds hungrier than he’s ever sounded on “The Climb Back.”
J. Cole might end his career as a top 5 rapper of all-time. On “The Climb Back,” one of his latest singles, he tries his hardest to turn non-believers of his greatness into believers.
You get all kinds of J. Cole’s on “The Climb Back:” We’re talking a numb Cole, a competitive Cole, a killer Cole, a spooky Cole, a hood-certified Cole, a disgruntled Cole, a mob boss Cole, and a slightly melodic Cole. When you combine all of the Coles together, what you end up getting is a lyrical banger that will leave a few weak-ass rappers shook.
“The Climb Back” is off of J. Cole’s short Lewis Street project.
