Despite his success of his first album and breaking through with the hit single “Work Out”, J. Cole was not satisfied with his effort after he found out he had disappointed Nas with the radio-freindly track. This story is chronicled in Cole’s track “Let Nas Down” off his recently released album Born Sinner. After a listen to the entire album, it seems Nas’s opinion has made a complete 180.
After being overwhelmingly impressed with Born Sinner and the original version of “Let Nas Down”, Nas decide to hop on the track and give a dedication to the MC he named the next big thing. Offering up his praise, Nas spits about his own journey in the game and how proud J. Cole has made him. It seems as though the torch has now been passed.
