Buy J. Cole’s “Lights Please” on iTunes

Lights Please

What started with a post featuring my favorite song from J Cole’s The Warm Up has turned into the most popular post in HTT‘s 6-month history (over 15,000 page views since July!), probably because I typed up the full lyrics to the mastered version as soon as it dropped.

Now, Cole & Roc Nation have decided to push “Lights Please” as the digital single, which is a great decision in my eyes. Since the first time I heard it, I felt it had the potential to achieve enormous success as a single because it blends the right amount of catchiness with real lyrics that many people can relate to. Plus, as Hov’s protege, people expect Cole to be talented from the jump – this song will reinforce that notion.

Do your part to support one of the year’s best songs by grabbing it at iTunes  for less than a 6-piece order of chicken nuggets.

And don’t forget to tell everyone where to find the lyrics – I really appreciate the love & support that everyone has shown to this historic post.

Special shouts to Nation and his new blog The Calm for the heads up, Enjoy!

Warm Up

While the internets wait for Shawn Carter’s new single with Rih Rih and ‘Yeezy, we’ll have to settle for a new version of an extremely dope track from Hov’s Roc Nation signee J. Cole.

I updated my original post with the full lyrics, but it seems that North Carolina’s promising young MC liberated the mastered version of the song of the year best jam off his Warm Up mixtape, “Lights Please.”

Peep the download link below and the full-length lyrics after the jump. Song spotted at Nah Right, lyrics typed by yours truly.. Enjoy!

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!
