As soon as our peeps at 2DopeBoyz premiered this unreleased J. Cole song, See It To Believe It, we knew we had to share it with the Booth. As usual, Cole gives us a glimpse of his life over one of his signature gloomy instrumentals that gives me the chills. Vocally he rhymes about his pre-Roc Nation deal life with no clothes in his closet and making songs in his bedroom, then promises of his upcoming reign as an emcee, telling an unnamed shorty to “come and kick it with a ni**a on his way to the top.” And Cole knows we’re still waiting on that ebut album (no, this won’t be on it) ‘cause he makes a quick reference to taking too long, but then affirms that we f**k with him nonetheless. You’re right, we’re waiting Cole. Impatiently.
