Drake vs. J.Cole

Hip Hop lives, despite its current washed up state. A cultural movement that music lovers all over the world can identify with in one way or another. Some so-called Rappers have demolished the essence of the genre that defines our existence, but two heavyweight newcomers are fighting to preserve its value.

Thank God for Drake and J. Cole.

Although the bickering over who is the better lyricist may never be settled, at least Hip Hop fans can partake in an argument of substance when it comes to these two.

Drake-Lil Wayne's prodigy: Slumdog Millionaire Bollywood flow, mixed with some R&B flavor.

J. Cole-Jay Z's prodigy: Hardcore lyrics delivered in an articulate fashion.

Drake may have the upper hand when speaking in terms of popularity and record sales, but J. Cole is definitely on the rise.

Who do you think has the most potential? Best lyrics?

Speak your peace.
