J.Cole was signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation around the same time Drake inked a deal with Young Money. Cole has been much quieter in the months since, diligently working towards his first album and releasing occasional leaks.

Premeditated Murder is based around an instrumental that would have felt right at home on Reasonable Doubt; lush, but understated like Cole himself. The lyrics describe the Fayetteville-born rapper’s current mindset– one of great expectations but equal uncertainty. He is pensively penning an album that already has a lot of hype around it.

Premeditated Murder is a decent track with a great feel and lyric, but it’s far from being “single material”. We understand J.Cole’s brilliance and level of depth, but he’ll have to come out with something stunning for his October release. If Lights Please is any indication of his upcoming tracks, we have a lot to look forward to. Keep meditating Cole, great things are expected.
