J. Cole delivers an incredible verse!

The track, which is taken from Jeezy’s new album ‘Pressure’, hears the rappers unleashing hard-hitting verses over mesmerising production by SoundSmith.
“My president was black, now my president is wack,” raps Jeezy in the tracks first verse.
Before J. Cole delivers a stunning verse of his own. “I just dropped a gem or two within a few verses I sing / For all my real ni**as trapped inside the game.”
Kendrick Lamar ends the track with a mix of rapping and singing: “These streets made for ballin’ / 10 toes ain’t for fallin’ / I hear the world callin’ / Tell me if you all in, tell me if you all in.”
J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar have been teasing fans with rumours of a collaborative album over recent years however the pair are yet to officially announce the project.
After their collaboration on Jeezy’s album was released, fans took to Twitter to give their thoughts.
