Last Saturday We Presented The ROOTED Design Experience At The Underflow, Presented By Red Bull. An Evening Focused Around The Growing Hip-Hop Community & Culture In The Greater Nashville Area.
We Allowed 200 People To Create Their Very Own Graphic T-Shirt Picking From An Array Of Graphics And Placing Them Where They Saw Fit As We Pressed Them Live. The DIY Environment With Our Team And Attendees Was Nothing Short Of Amazing. Thank You Again To Everyone Who Made This Important Evening For Nashville Possible. #stayROOTED
After initially trying to break onto the scene as a producer, Cole decided to take his shot from another angle and released his debut mixtape, The Come Up, in 2007. It was the mixtape, not Cole’s beats, that eventually caught Hov’s attention.
Despite originally trying to get his work to Jay as a producer, the man who once made a “Produce for Jay Z or die trying” t-shirt, never received a single production credit on a Jay Z solo project. Even though Cole was able to get a feature on Jay Z’s The Blueprint 3 the same year he signed to Roc Nation, he saw his feature returned by Jay Z just a single time: on Cole’s freshman album Cole World: The Sideline Story. But that verse was something special.
"Yeah, I got a Hublot, I call it Tebow
I strap that bitch with a gator band
Y'all niggas ball half-time, y'all niggas like the Gator band
Y'all niggas need a time out
Who got these niggas all wound up?
Cocksucker, I'm 730
Y'all know where y'all niggas gonna wind up?
No more Mr. Nice Guy, hello Mr. Nice Watch
Only but a matter of time 'fore I hit yall niggas with a nice shot
Y'all niggas better not call the law
Get no blood on my Audemar
Meaning y'all better not waste my time
When y'all ready I take you all to war
Meanwhile I'm just chopping off doors
Put the front on the back, cause I'm back and forth
Put the front on the back of the 'Bach like a boss
So I'm fronting on niggas when I'm backing off
What up, Cole? It's your time, let's these niggas know
Adjust your Rollie on these motherfucking hoes
Whenever you ready, go"
J.I.D: DICAPRIO 2
genre: Hip Hop
Overall J.I.D did a very solid effort on this record, he showed his versatility with different styles and flows on tracks like Tiied (even though the auto tune was annoying) and Workin out. This record doesn’t have many bad tracks and is pretty consistent. Even though it isn’t very sonically innovative or creative the songs change in style and texture throughout the album to give a good listening experience.
