Here’s some new J. Cole. He and Big K.R.I.T. are carrying the torch for true Southern spitters.
The track is called Killers and there’s an interesting story behind it.
Here’s the story:
From Alex Haldi:
Hello All, Unfortunately our first single leaked ahead of time but I would really appreciate if you could link the artwork and our blurb. Its for Charity and this is by far our biggest artist… you know the deal with the leaks.
“Celebrated creative mind Alex Haldi has collaborated with some of music’s biggest stars including Jay-Z, Rihanna, Big Boi, Wu-Tang, Ludacris, J. Cole & LL Cool J, and is putting the finishing touches on his own solo art event May 12, 2011 in NYC at World Monuments Fund Gallery. Exploring the human fascination with organized crime, ‘The Glorification of Gangster’ showcases some of the key players and criminal lifestyles across the globe and many generations. The art at the show will consist of three elements: Fine art (including mixed media paintings on wood), Oversized Typography Murals, and Retro Pop-Art Illustrations. Portions of work sold will be going to charity (campkayak.com).
A promotional mixtape is to be released in the next month which will include a series of original music, mash-up remixes, and classic covers by a number of different acts that are all linked thematically with ‘Crime’. The talent will vary across different musical genres (hip-hop, rap, rock, electronic, etc.), and includes music from artists like J. Cole, Kris Kasanova, Voli, Andrew Maury (Ra Ra Riot producer and RAC), Jon Connor, Elite, Ritz, Lyn Charles, Loyal Divide, Neitherfriends, and many more. The download will be free, with a link to donate money to our charity.
We will provide the download to the mixtape when it drops. If you need the J. Cole file in your life right now…it won’t be hard to find. Here’s the artwork:
