Riff: J. Cole – “Power Trip”

Jun 18, 2013

Can’t help but feelin’ like I dropped the ball, cliche/I used to pop up on you at the mall each day/Now typically I kick game like Eastbay

from Power Trip lyrics by J. Cole

Hooking up with Miguel for arguably his only track that could be described as vaguely romantic, Cole regrets not seizing the moment with the girl he once anonymously sent flowers to as he returns to the hometown apparently packed with girls bereft that they’re not with him. [LISTEN].
