J. Cole is one of the most respected and successful rappers in the game. Even Nas recently said he was one of the three greatest of all time. The Power Trip star is not shy about claiming accolades for himself, either.
Cole was featured on Benny The Butcher’s new single, “Johnny P’s Caddy.” In one of his verses, J. Cole boasts that he is the best rapper alive. Many fans would agree with the statement.
“Cole pen be lethal, crib like an old MTV show, uh. On God, the best rapper alive. Headshot, now go and ask the best rappers that died. They tell you he never lied, n*gga.”
Benny The Butcher’s new album was produced by The Alchemist. The record just dropped today. Fans on social media have debated about J. Coles claim.
The consensus is that if Cole is not the best of all time, he’s certainly up there. Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem would probably argue for the spot. Only one of those rappers is considered the most successful ever.
The debate over who the greatest rapper of all time is will go on forever. There is always a new, undiscovered talent out there waiting to break out. J. Cole believes his time is right now.
