After spending the end of 2018 lending his vocals to a lot of features, J. Cole is back with a metaphor for his solo career. “MIDDLE CHILD” is the story of his place in the music industry, explaining his place in the hip-hop “family” as between the underground rappers and “the OGs.”
Horns create a beat fit for a champion with victorious notes announcing his return. The single comes as his first official solo single since 2013 and steps away from the non-traditional album release of his last three drops.
Suggesting the start of a new era for Cole, “MIDDLE CHILD” sets the stage for a huge 2019.
