J. Cole – Lion King on Ice MP3 DOWNLOAD
On “Lion King on Ice,” J. Cole returns to his alter ego Young Simba, but now in a much colder and darker tone. He raps about his come-up and his experience growing up in Fayetteville, where he didn’t always know whether he would see the next day.
The song seems to be rapped from the perspective of a younger Cole as he talks about needing to prove himself and rise to the top of the rap game, two things that the current Cole has already done.
Two days before releasing this song, Cole published an essay titled “The Audacity” in which he discussed how the feeling of needing to prove himself is what drove him when he first began rapping:
When I started rapping, it was the competition that drove me. I had a burning desire to be the best in the world and to prove it with every verse.
This and “The Climb Back” are the first two singles from Cole’s sixth studio album, The Fall Off. They were released together as Lewis Street.
