I’m a few days late on this one but it seemed like the perfect post to make my comeback to the blog. Born Sinner is nothing short of a masterpiece. Unlike on his debut album, Cole was not under pressure from his label to make commercial tracks. Able to make the deep music that he does best, Cole delivered the album of the year to this point. Born Sinner sees Cole contemplate the state of rap, the problems facing our nation, and above all his own feelings since releasing Cole World: The Sideline Story. He went through a very dark period after dropping his last album, saying he feels as if he essentially sold his soul to the devil in the hopes of making money and radio music. The dark tone of the album matches his feelings, and it is one of the most emotional and meaningful projects I have ever heard. I know I said this above, but I don’t know how to describe the album other than “masterpiece.” It should go down as a classic, and Cole says that Born Sinner marks the beginning of his prime. If this is the beginning, I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
