Lights Please

J. Cole

I been listening to J. Cole’s mixtape The Warm Up after hearing & reading good things. I admittedly slept on dude before now for no apparent reason, which was a bad look on my part. The North Carolina MC is the only cat Shawn Carter has signed to his new imprint Roc Nation, so I had decided to let the new tape rotate.

One cut in particular caught my ear early. On “Lights Please,” Cole elaborates on the ups and downs (okay, mostly ups) of being intimate with the opposite sex – which we all know is no easy task, especially when one is trying to change the world.

He proceeds to drop knowledge, calls out dead-beat daddy’s, then eventually marinates in the sensuality of the female, um, “aura.”

Shouts to Complex Mag for the link and J Gill and B Dot for the heads up . I typed up some of the lyrics for “Lights Please” below for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
