J Cole - mainstream Hip Hop's Savior

Drake was the false alarm (although Drake, J Cole and Jay Z were all on Dead Presidents 3), but everyone in the record industry jumped on him anyways, but J Cole is the real deal. J Cole actually makes lyrically driven tracks that MEAN something, with a flow that is nonchalant and robotic he can still conjure up images and feeling. I just hope that people don't call him the new Drake or brush him aside as "been there done that" because his verses are too good, although it's questionable whether top 40 radio will be ready for a guy who actually has something to say. It would be awesome if Lupe Fiasco and this man collaborate on something.
