Elliott Wilson takes to the streets of New York City to kick off the third season of “The Truth” with one of the summer’s biggest hip-hop matchups: Kanye West‘s Yeezus vs. J.Cole’s Born Sinner. YN gets the scoop from J.Cole’s right hand man, Ibrahim “IB” Hamad, and Yeezy’s contributing producer, Mike Dean- but who will get the edge in the end?

    Elliott, you are completely wrong about Back Skinhead. That energy has the infectious energy of a rock record, much like a large portion of old school hip hop in the tradition of the Run DMC’s and others.

    Yo, Elliott. The show is dope. I’m enjoying both CDs but Cole is a better overall CD. I mean I had track #1 on repeat in my car for a few days now… Sometimes I rhyme like Hov…

  • Morgan Johns

    YEEZUS!!

    I think they both are great albums. Why does one have to be better than the other? I disagree with you about Black Skinhead; the drums on that song are so hard and deep. Blood on the Leaves is an amazing song. I agree with Mike Dean calling Ye the Pink Floyd. He is pushing the boundaries and expanding the sound of the modern hip hop. As For #BornSinner **Applause** I love Forbidden Fruit and Runaway. We need to put Mac Miller in this conversation too. I think that we finally have balance is our choices… #OnlyIfCommercialRadioCouldSeeIt

    Yeezus delivers that next level production as ALWAYS…..some of the tracks definitely have POWERFUL messages as well. Born Sinner has ALL the elements that comprise a CLASSIC album….(I bet he didn’t let Nas down with this one)…..Both Albums speak volumes of the talent of both artists, with Kanye continuing his futuristic evolution, and Cole showing his continual growth as an MC. Each album will shake the core of you for different reasons, be it Kanye’s battle chants and heavy bass, or Cole’s relatable lines. However if I HAD to choose, I’d say “Born Sinner” will definitely be mentioned among the Reasonable Doubts and Illmatics.
