“Track 1”

Producer: Universal

Co-producer: J. Cole

Complex says: The album opens with a dreamy soundscape that we can’t help but compare to Jay-Z’s “Intro” from The Dynasty. The desperation in Cole’s rhymes make him sound like he’s down to his last dime, but despite the circumstances he still comes off as a nice guy with a mean flow. The beat switches up slightly from verse to verse which is why Cole gets a co-producer credit.
