Get Free

One of the best things about Soundcloud (besides watching where and what people comment on and making personal playlists of unreleased/b-side tracks and finding new artists) is hearing so many different versions of the songs I love.   One such song is “Get Free,” which has two remixes I love–one featuring J. Cole (a thoughtful kinda rapper*<3) and the other a Sniff remix (seen in the tweet above from early this week).

The latter is hard to understand, but the bassy notes are so full and fun, it’s hard to not like it.

The aforementioned, however, has some very interesting lyrics. And when paired with rapgenius (if needed**), it’s a key to some interesting food for thought, which J. Cole manages to do quite often. He’s really something special. <33

*The “rapper catalog” can help explain that a bit more.

**Many references are easy to pick up without rapgenius, but it’s still interesting to see how different people interpret and explain the lyrics.
