Big Sean ft. J. Cole - 24K of Gold
Now that Big Sean‘s brand spanking new Detroit mixtape has had a little time to soak in everyone’s ears, it should come as no surprise that there’s quite a few cuts off the project that are receiving a hefty amount of attention. Among those records is stand out selection 24K Of Gold, which features noted Roc Nation spitter J. Cole. The record comes across as surprisingly mellow and a welcomed change for the Detroit emcee whose past singles have been known to shake a rump or two. I mean, the guy has a song called Dance (A$$). Sean also takes on the songs hook, which seems to serve as a nod to Nas’ 1996 cut If I Ruled The World, as he sings, “Wishing I could wrap my whole life up in 24K of gold/ Lately I been dreaming about diamonds and pearls, yep diamonds and pearls/ And enough money I could rule the world.” Keeping with the lax vibe of 24K Of Gold is producer keY Wane who mellows out the production with subtle scratches and laidback keys.
