J. Cole has just released a new track called The Reasons. It was recorded when J. Cole was in his late teens, around the time he was still recording songs under the alias Therapist. In all, it’s an interesting glimpse into J. Cole‘s humble beginnings. Glimmers of J. Cole‘s lofty aspirations shine through in his verse. He even uses the distinctive flow that would later on garner him praise on The Come Up. The Reasons is a rather short track. It spans a mere 1 minute, 28 seconds. However, the punches it packs despite its short length will not be lost on any true J. Cole fans.
Also featured in the song is rapper Bobwrite, who takes over in the last third of the song.
