Best album released since Kanye's The College Dropout.
Rashad L. Smith
If you are looking for a good album filled with good lyrics and great production that is very much a Rap/Hip-Hop album then you should buy this album.

A few years ago, I went to see one of my favorite artists in concert, Janelle Monae. I quickly realized though, that almost the entire crowd was there not for her or Wale--but the opening act, J. Cole. Within minutes, Cole had the entire audience on their feet and rapping along with him. I didn't know his music at all, but found myself moving along with the crowd and smiling just because the vibe was so good. I had to wait two years though before I could go and buy his first album though. I wasn't that impressed to be honest. I thought that I had somehow mis-remembered how good Cole was.

Two years later though, J. Cole is back with the album I think he had always been trying to make. He even says as much on the brilliant "Let Nas Down." It's clear the label and Jay-Z made him release a far different debut album than he had intended originally. This though--this is where you really see him.

"Born Sinner" is both reverential as well as super modern musically. Cole hasn't hopped on the bandwagon of rap trends like having a girl sing all of his choruses or making the beats all dance tracks, but he is also not stuck in the past. His beats are clean yet with subtle touches that really elevate them like a jazz saxophone. He both samples as well as references tracks from the beginning of rap in a very respectful way-- A Tribe Called Quest, Biggie, and Outkast all make appearances. Also, Cole very smartly pairs himself with some great collaborators like the Dirty Projectors' Amber Coffman, Miguel and a choir who all provide a contrast to his rather deadpan delivery.

Lyrically Cole is a beast. He is introspective and thoughtful, sometimes bragging, sometimes telling stories.

man, cole REALLY delivered on 'born sinner' its so far ahead of his debut album which i could NOT get into at all. The album starts off well with 'villuminati' which features a famous biggie sample that fits in so perfectly. The song came under fire from over sensitive critics that focus on single words instead of listening to everything cole has to say but im not gonna get into that. This is the first album ive bought in a long time that feels like hit after hit when im playing it.
My top 5 changes often but right now i would have to say that it's, villuminati, rich ni***z, ni***z know(deluxe), land of the snakes and new york times(deluxe). I advise everyone that buys this album to buy the deluxe edition, it's worth it, the five bonus tracks aka 'Truly Yours, 3' are on a seperate disc. 'Born Sinner' is my AOTY so far(easy choice) and will most likely remain that. J. Cole may not outsell Kanye's 'Yeezus' but it's definately a much better listen for me.
Finally, if it's dope hip hop you are looking for then you cant go wrong with this, COP IT AND SUPPORT DOPE MUSIC.

Call me silly but this album is outshining over the hype that was Yeezus. I'm a fan of both of them but this is hip hop. The lyrics are telling and they are relative. It's not juvenile like the lyrics Kanye decided to spit on a lot of the Yeezus tracks. Also the production value of the tracks were manicured showing an integrity to the value of the music and the emphasis to the lyrics to the track. It's not trashy or degrading but speaking in a smart mannerism to the prose. Been a fan but this album is making me a believer of the future of hip hop. Also, this LP needs to be put on vinyl. It needs to be in my elitist collection. Damn.

J. Cole made the release date of June 18, 2013 even sweeter by releasing his highly anticipated effort Born Sinner (Deluxe Edition) the same day as Kanye West and Mac Miller's new efforts. While West's Yeezus [Explicit] is receiving the most buzz, perhaps J. Cole should be receiving equal, if not more 'love'. Born Sinner is an exceptional follow-up to J. Cole's debut effort, Cole World: The Sideline Story, one of 2011's best album. Intellectual and bold throughout, Cole's lyricism shows growth; he was already 'killing it'.

"Villuminati" opens, chocked full to the brim with allusions and brainy rhymes. It may be a bit heady to open, but it successfully shows Cole's skill. Criticizing what Cole considers falsehoods of televangelism (and perhaps the church itself) is "Kerney Sermon (Skit)", in which pastor Kerney Thomas advertises a Prayer Package meant to 'heal' hardships, etc. He follows up the skit with "Land of the Snakes", a cut in which he reminisces on his past, particularly his own hardships and a regrettable one-night stand. Remaining focused, Cole does not disappoint in the least. On the ubiquitous promo single "Power Trip", Cole continues to impress, as he suggests his girl has "Got me up all night, all I'm singing is love songs..." Overt about his feelings, Cole claims "...this has gotta be the longest crush ever..." while his partner in crime Miguel just 'wants you to want him.' After the love is gone, "Mo Money (Interlude)" proceeds, with J.
