Kendrick Lamar Or J.cole?: Who Is The Leader Of New School Rap? by PigMeat: 1:56am On Dec 13, 2016
I was listening to this debate and comments from nigerians in "hot fm abuja" when the issue of WHO IS THE LEADER OF NEW SCHOOL RAP was raised, I was amaized by some persons comments on the topic, like someone said j.cole is 10 steps ahead of lamar, which I think such comments was borne of sentiment from a j.cole's supporter.

I have decided to introduce this debate here on nairaland for lovers of new school to, without bias tell us who he or she feels is the leader of new school rap, and why he or she feels so. Feel free to choose others like drake, wale, pusha t, andre, immortal, 2chanz, french montana, big seun, meek mill, etc.

Just like CR7 vs Messi, it's all about preference. Personally I prefer listening to Cole even though I listen to them both, Cole just gets to me.
I also heard they are both working on a collab album as leaked by Ab Soul.

Yea, I heard of the collabo too. I love the fact that the competition is a healthy one. Remember the jay z and nas's scenario.
I will liken j.cole to nas and lamar to jay z.

Leader of the new school, it's proven and it's known,
I'm sitting in a chair but in the future it's a throne.

The artiste who dropped those bars, is the leader of the new school.

Bless-up.

Lol, u know how the lamar dude came into actions. It was too sudden, although he was doing some underground stuff before then, but the rate of his talent growth was a speedy one. Lamar is good but not the musical christ as people has portrayed him.

i don't think this topic is suitable to ask Nigerians, in depth analysis won't be carries out, because most of us hv been bewitched by listening to wacky songs day in day out, I doubt many pple in naija will undastand wot J.Cole and Lamar brings to d rap world, to many they re just regular rappers..

back to the topic, they re both lit, but personally, am a Kendrickian.

.kendricks got that complex, fist-in-the-air/rebel flow and content. He's a better lyricist.
Cole is more relatable, also a good story teller, great flow, him being a producer is an advantage. He's gettin Boring tho. (If uv copped his last two albums "2014l and "4 ur eyez", ud get my drift)

drake is more of a pop artiste dan a rapper. Den with all the ghostwritting claims. He's a great music maker tho. N I luv listenin 2 him . If I see a drake album and that of kendrick, I'd reach for drake's frst without thinking.

wale is alright. Not a fan tho. Dats all I'll say.

pusha t has always been dope

Big sean got That lovely cool, laid back flow

But bros why u gotta mention 2chainz and french montana na? But y?

Kendrick is a genius.
He doesn't just rap, he does conscious hip hop.
Listen to his lyrical content and you will know he his way above board.
He is an activist, its solely not about the beats, billboards and platinums
He belongs to skool of tots of the likes of Pac, Nas, Common, Public Enemies, Tallib, L Boogie (Lauryn Hill) and so on.

Re: Kendrick Lamar Or J.cole?: Who Is The Leader Of New School Rap? by stinggy(m): 11:53am On Dec 13, 2016
it's a Coleworld for me cool

Kendrick is more of a commercial rapper.

Y'all dissing Cole need to read up his lyrics, no one comes close to this guy. Lines like he is conversing with you, so real a niqgar.

In songs that has featured both rappers, Cole has been better - T.K.O. by JT, I'm back.

If you're still doubting, try these tracks:
- Born Sinner, Get Free, Apparently, Cole Summer...


Cole's 2014 'Forest Hills Drive' Album went platinum without a single feature.... Only 4 other rappers achieved that.

J. Cole lyrics are easy to understand and equally passionate to flow with. It's philosophical.

However, Kendrick is more of underground, raw and little bit core for the yung skools. He's more of 2pac while Cole is more of Biggie
