On the first single from his highly anticipated upcoming album, Roc Nation’s J. Cole, comes hard. “Miss America” serves as both a homage and scolding of these beautiful United States of America. Cole produces a dark, fitting instrumental over which he spits consciously, and at times angrily, delivering his own State of the Union. As a young emcee of the highest caliber, the North Carolina native demonstrates his insight and intensity exuding the maturity of a seasoned veteran.
Stream this charged, and powerful, portrayal of the Cole World below, and make sure to show some support when the single hits iTunes tomorrow. Cole’s second studio album, Born Sinner, is due out January 28th. Mark your calendars.
