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.
Quincy is the creator of Ratings Game Music. He loves writing about music, taking long walks on beaches, and spaghetti that fights him back.
