WORDPLAY: They both have good wordplay but considering the fact they both tell stories with their album songs it would be hard to pick except when you look at mixtapes & singles. E.g (Black Friday, Dots' Section 80 and Coles' Friday Night Lights)

For me lil wayne is the most overrated rapper of all time(my opinion though),he's an average rapper.
I like Lil Wayne though but pre Carter 4 Wayne.... It's terrible seeing how bad he has deteriorated anyways

Hmmmmmm!I love your post,it's very informative but I don't want to mention my overrated rapper of all time because of some rap fans here on nairaland(no offence).I'm not among those people who are overhyping Kdot and I will never do that.I just believe he's a better rapper(that's all).For me "the game" is the current king of california,recently he's becoming a little bit commercial because of the cash but he's still on top of his game.My favourite rapper of all time is Nas(Godson),I love everything about Nas(pls no homo),Illmatic is my favourite rap album.But I still respect and listen to rappers like 2pac,Big,Krs one,Dr dre(I'm addicted to his chronic album),Rakim,Dmx,Wu tang clan,Jay Z,Game,D12,Cannibus,Jadakiss,ghostface killer,Raekwon,Jedi mind trick etc.I respect you so much because of your contributions on this lovely thread(you are a lady but you are a big fan of hardcore rap).Big up to you#have a wonderful weekend.

It's a tough decision.

Kendrick is a lyricsist, he makes you see the world in different angle, from his EP to Overly Dedicated mixtape, he talks about life as an underdog, how he is not influenced by the society, then he was forced to drop Section 80 where he talked about life in a third person, like Tammy song which talks about a good girl gone bad & Keisher song about a girl who was insecure, he then talked about his own insecurity in the track The Spiteful Chant. He then dropped his best critical acclaim album "good kid, mAAd city" where he talk about himself, peer pressure while growing up & his girlfriend Sherane which was also a good and a bad influence. Everything change for Kendrick when he released ToPimpAButterfly album, he's now an activist and motivator.

Why J. Cole right from time raps from personal experience, he uses experience to inspire in his music. from his mixtape to album as been very consistent.

For motivation I listen to Kendrick, For inspiration I listen to J. Cole.
youve made quite valid points,but i dnt think keishas song is about her insecurity,its "no make up".keishas song is about how d environment nd society influenced her life negatively putting d majority of d blame on sexual harrasment nd d mothers little regard for d daughter,thats y he said on 'sing about me.he told d sister that he just wantd to tell d story of how their flawed system destroyed keisha

They are both good, but media rates them too high. Will go with joyner lucas any day over both of them. He has everything flow, lyrics, speed and good beats to. Unlike like kendrick most times his beats would be dull, but he would be making sense. I rep joyner Abeg. Meanwhile look up this version of king kong

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, Black Friday.

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



Colelovers let's keep reminding them that Cole's 2014 'Forest Hills Drive' Album went platinum withoutt a single feature.... Only 4 other rappers achieved that.
Chief, I'm a Hard core J. Cole fan, but Kendrick killed black Friday

Chief, I'm a Hard core J. Cole fan, but Kendrick killed Black Friday, I mean from the composition, to his voice, to his dissing stupid rappers. It was just hot. Kendrick is more of a Poet, he's a deep poet that, you gotta use your dictionary or Google search terms or phrases he uses. J. Cole speaks to you while Kendrick speaks for you. Go listen to Untitled Unmastered 01,its about rapture, but you gotta be effing attentive to get it.

Of truth, Kendrick won in Black Friday (I have to admit) but I listened to it 4 times with lyrics on. Good job, but brother, lemme just say we get impressed differently, maybe not my kinda rap.

They're both top lyriscists all tho Kendricks lyricism has a more staggering depth. J cole definitely brings something different but as ab_soul said "if I ain't better than Kendrick no one is"

For me, J. Cole is my favourite rapper in this world, but then, it depends on what you're looking for in rap. If you're looking for hardcore bars, kendrick is your guy. J. Cole is more of a brilliant story teller ( listen to Wet Dreamz and you'll understand). J. Cole speaks to you. You can bleeping relate with his music on any level. Listen to his latest album from the beginning to the end accordingly and try to decipher the story. Peep the picture below for the explanation though. Talking about the Black Friday freestyles, Kendrick did justice to that! Just listen to it and read the lyrics at the same time, then pause to think. You'll be suprised at the punchlines you missed before. Kendrick is too sick! In all, J. Cole is still my favourite but Kendrick comes after him definitely! My favourite J. Cole song is Fire Squad though. Rappers to watch out for are Vic Mensa, Lil Dicky and Machine Gun Kelly. Just download their last albums.
For the explanation of J. Cole's latest album, check the picture below.

Well well two of the biggest artists right now but this thread is not about who you like more,it's about what the masses prefer

J Cole's got a huge female fanbase because of the type of music that he makes plus he got the looks too,to me that is already a win

Kendrick Lamar on the other hand makes music stickly for the hood and females ain't about all that Kendrick's complexity,they want ish that keeeps them dancing in the club

So the winner of the leader of the new skool contest is *drum rolls..drum rolls* ....J Cole

both are amazing artists.... but it's about the music tho...i think you should leave their persona aside... The energy K.Dot pushes out on dem tracks tho,its unmeasurable!
