A lot of noise has been made over J. Cole, as he is the first North Carolina artist to become a mainstream rap star in some time. J. Cole was credited for being a lyrical artist able to appeal to the masses. His lyrical abilities earned him comparisons to the likes of Nas, transcending his title as a Southern rapper.
