Don’t even cry about it, just another episode of life
I was reading something about Tupac’s last album, and learned about this old J. Cole track from the Friday Night Lights mixtape that I’m unfamiliar with. J. Cole interpolated Tupac’s ‘Hail Mary’ in the chorus and the production is ripe and gorgeous.
The song’s theme also reminds me of the movie, Boyz n the Hood (dir. John Singleton, 1991), which I recommend if you liked Straight Outta Compton, Dope, Fruitvale Station, and Poetic Justice.
