Rap Royal Rumble: Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ vs J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ – Which Are You Buying?

Published: Tuesday 18th Jun 2013 by Sam

June 18th.

It’s a day many Hip-Hop enthusiasts had etched in their minds, for two of the genre’s most pronounced titans go head-to-head in a bid for chart glory.

The initial “owner” of the date is controversial Kanye West, whose ‘Yeesuz’ album has provoked pandemonium of all varieties. Keen to embrace the art of competition Roc Nation’s Cole actually moved up the release of his sophomore set ‘Born Sinner’ so as to go toe-to-toe with West – a move many have hailed for its bravery (and audacity).

And while the real “winner” is arguably fans of Hip-Hop, we -as ever-want to plough through the smoke and mirrors to find out which releases the masses are truly “here” for. Forget the leaks, the babies, and the media spin and let us know…

    I just bought Born Sinner last night, definitely a good purchase.
    Yeezus was a disappointment in my opinion.

    j Cole

  11. Taria June 18, 2013

    Kelly and Yeesus

  12. DIGGER BEY June 18, 2013

    I like J Cole’s album cover. Both are part of the Roc Nation Family, so its Win Win for both. Yeezy = 500k first week and J Cole = 150k – 200k first week.

  13. POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 18, 2013

    None, will download for free , even not that because i don’t wanna waste my time , will stream online and that’s it.

  14. nobitchassness June 18, 2013

    Talk A Good Game is a wise purchase.

  15. EdwardPonton June 18, 2013

    Definitely Purchased Born Sinner, after listening to both leaks Cole won me over. Initially I was going to buy both but Kanye comes off as arrogant these days and surprisingly Target didn’t even have Yeezus in stock yet.

    Born Sinner is a very solid effort by Cole. It’s a grower you must listen to the songs repeatedly and enjoy stories and testimonials to appreciate the album. Great purchase

  16. Navy Sailor June 18, 2013

    I will purchase yeezus and probably download J Cole.

  17. Ty Glascoe June 18, 2013

    I purchased J Cole ‘Born Sinner’ & Kelly Rowland ‘Talk A Good Game’… I’m very happy about my decision. They killed these albums!

  18. Chile Please!! June 18, 2013

    J.Cole album is ever this Ms. West is seed.omen!! I can’t with his album! J.Cole is about to take over the rap game! With is s*** Vanilla Waffer looking ass!

  19. Stans Make Me LOL June 18, 2013

    Kanye West damn near lost his mind with Yeezus, Dreadful piece of crap album. J Cole WINS hands down, from “Crooked Teeth” to “Power Trip” he is what the rap game needs.

    • NΛVI June 18, 2013

      “crooked smile’ c*** lol

  20. King B>Rihanna June 18, 2013

    Born Sinner

  21. IM A FREE B*TCH June 18, 2013

  22. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 18, 2013

    Just returned from Best Buy with “Yeezus” & “Born Sinner” in hand. 🙂

    AWESOME day for hip-hop!

  23. Boss June 18, 2013

    Just bought Cole’s album nd of course it goes hard.

  24. Carpe Diem. June 18, 2013

    Gonna cop Kelly’s and J. Cole’s deluxe albums tomorrow.

  25. Back 2 J June 18, 2013

    To be honest I didn’t like the songs I heard from Kanye. But J Cole’s record is dope, especially the song he did with TLC called ‘Crooked Smile’. A song with a good message behind it. That really needs to be released as the next single with a music video with T Boz & Chilli.

  26. bibi93 June 18, 2013

    J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’

  27. Alex June 19, 2013

    Kelly Rowland’s ‘Talk A Good Game’!!!!!!

  28. Jay June 19, 2013

    Comparing J Cole’s CD to Kanye’s CD is like comparing Jay Z to ASAP Rocky…. you just don’t do it. Two completely different artists with two different agendas. Everything isn’t a simple as Bey v Rihanna Fan Fluff.
