J. Cole Speaks on "A Star Is Born"

J. Cole humbly speaks about the makings of one of the highlight tracks of B3.  I may not have gotten tickets to the Jay-Z show at MSG tonight, but a particular slam piece I know who's flying into the city for the weekend hooked me up with some J. Cole tickets for his show at NYU tomorrow (a worthy replacement).  As a bonus, I've attached the version of "Lights Please" that appears on his superb mixtape The Warm Up (the final version will appear as the title track for his proper debut album, due out in the next couple years).  It's a classic track in which Cole starts out rapping about the ills of the world, only to be blinded by...well, I'll let you listen to the song for yourself.  It's also the track that got him signed as a relatively unknown artist as the cornerstone of Jay-Z's Roc Nation.  Keep your eyes (and ears) out for this NC emcee, he's going places (also, for those of you who haven't peeped it, I recommend reading his interview in the latest issue of XXL).
