The question is not about who raps better Or who you prefer? .. The LEADER of this PRESENT CLASS, their HEADBOY is DRAKE. He has broken records set by ONLY Micheal Jackson & Elvis Presley. He has set his own records and has sold more ALBUMS and singles than any of them. Numbers don't lie
you clearly didn't read the topic b4 talking about how drake has broken records set by m.j. its about rap man, not singing.


For me its a damn had choice. Both a just too dope but I think kendrick is more on the conscious side, he's a bit deeper. But cole's tight tho and u can easily relate to his lyrics

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.
I'm not a fan of the new school rap but Kendrick is the best new school rapper

I think Nas saw the future. I remember his Album " Hip hop is dead".

Words of an old man with silver hair on his wheelchair
His eyes were bloody while describing what lies before me
' said evil bitches and jealous men would try to destroy me


Nas all day everyday

This is a tough choice ma nigga.

Both are into conscious rap,

both are conservative,

Both uses their lyrics to address social issues (a lot), But J Cole does it more.

Both Have entered the mainstream industry.

Kendrick gets more features.(Because Cole will always air his views it doesn't matter what the songs about)

They both have lyrical prowess

Cole is like Nas, Kendrick is like Jay Z.
ETC.

So in my own opinion

Kendrick is the leader. Because Kendrick is still ready to conform(although not entirely), He will still say that thing that you want to hear and still take a jab at you. So anybody can really listen to Kendrick.

Its mostly hardcore hip hop heads (like me). That usually listen to Cole. Mainstream fans can't Just Fvcks with J Coles music.

So for that Kendrick Wins. For creating a style that appeal to both the mainstream and Hardcore rap fans.

I can go on and on about these two.

but y'all should listen to ab-soul though, That dude is underrated. Even Kendrick admitted he was a better rapper than him.

I didn't mean to quote you ma nigga. It was a mistake.

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.

And you think cole isn't all about that, Cole to me is just PHENOMENAL. I love him as much as I love Kendrick, Drake, 2pac, Jadakiss, A$AP Rocky, Bry$on Tyler, kid cuddi, Lil Wayne, to mention a few cos they're realist. Have you listened to "j. Cole-Dollar and a dream 3" "Cole world "" adolescence" in short album "Cole world sideline stories" "forest Hill drive".

Cole is my first choice relaxing my mind when I'm dealing with some real life shiit. Kendrik motivates me to not back down and Wayne agitate me to getting whatever I lock my target on.

Re: Kendrick Lamar Or J.cole?: Who Is The Leader Of New School Rap? by omoISEYIN(m): 12:51pm On Dec 13, 2016
Just like Jay z and Nas.
Bothe are great and successful rapper, but depends on what you see as success.
Jay z is one of the richest rapper coming out of many self announced retirement to drops albums
Nas being a renowned peot and lyricist have the greatest rap album of all time ILLMATIC even as a tenager to his credit.

Even a dumb rapper can be rich ask Master P but
A dumb rapper can never be the best of all time.

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.

Re: Kendrick Lamar Or J.cole?: Who Is The Leader Of New School Rap? by lakesidepapa(m): 12:54pm On Dec 13, 2016
I listen to both rappers but lyrically and flow, Lamar have it. To me, lamar is the better one and currently the best rapper in the world now. Short, Smart, real and Genius. He's like another Pac.

"YOUR CARRIER AINT poo UNLESS ITS GOT SOME KENDRICK IN IT"

kendrick to the bone!


cole also is a nice rapper in the block but kendrick is far away frm this dude in all aspect.kendrick is a lyricist,he is not like ur common rapper wit som boom boom boom type of beats,almost all is instrumentals are sorts of metallic and jazz fussions.listen to his TPAB to find out wat i min or betta still go back in to days of his rigarmortis,em hi power tracks or section8.0,good kid from mad city..and also try n listen to d dimension he took the cole world's black friday beat..to be honest d two are good but k.dot is better,his style is aggressively crazy like the pirahnas.

to crown it all someone uses a 2015 album to buy the whole of 016. funny enoff wen sumone said he is a commercial rapper,mehn u listened to much phynos,ola n co thats why u cnt differentiate btwn hardcore rapper n commercial rappers.

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.


Drake is not even near to the throne.... J.Cole is

You guys are very sentimental. I'm not even a DRAKE fan but facts are facts. Do you know that Future / young thug are classified as rappers? Drake raps and he sings. You cannot in all honesty say he Isn't a rapper. He has broken and set records on billboards, Grammy's, spotify, iTunes, cutting Major deals left and right. You think that happens to any Tom dick and Harry? Drake is in a League on his own NONE of these guys can do the numbers he's doing NONE. when J Cole and Kendrick Lamar are going 1x platinum , Drake is already 6x Platinum. I watch Interviews, podcasts and periscopes and if JOE BUDDEN- who is feuding with Drake can confess on HOT97 to Ebro and later Chalamange Tha god, that Drake is the Biggest rapper in the Game to the acknowledgement of these HIP HOP HEADS then I don't think your opinion is OBJECTIVE enough.

J,Cole and Kendrick?
I need to listen to J.Cole more. He must be really good to be compared to Kendrick.
Is this just Nigerians or is the rest of the world committing this fallacy.
Lamar is in the league of spirit legends.
To me he's undisputed king and no one is even contesting.

I totally disagree.in fact it's the other way round.Cole OS in fact easily understandable&has more mass appeal than Kendrick.There are mixed views from a lot of fans on TPAB Cos it was a complex album.From the first time till today,I still play FHD cos it's a straight album but TPAB took me more time to understand.Cole is more mainstream and less hardcore than lamar

Same here man...that moment when you gotta open genius. Com on the side to assimilate his bars. But I tell you, I adore Cole and Kendrick. One of my favorite Kendrick track is "U.O.E.N.O freestyle ft Ab-Soul, school boyQ, Jay Rock and future" Damn they spit real fire on that track.
