    J. Cole Sideline Story for Throwback Thursday

    Welcome to another Thursday as that mean we are closer to the weekend once again. My playlists this week consisted of some old school hip hop from the 80s and 90s.

The new album from the Outlawz called One Nation was also bumped and it was really good. For my Throwback Thursday, we are turning to J. Cole who happens to be one of my favorite newer artists.

    Gang Starr Family and Loyalty With J. Cole

    First things first, rest in peace to the late, great Guru. Guru passed away in April 2010 from a long bout with cancer.

Last year, he dropped the K.O.D. album which was great. His Dreamville imprint just released a compilation last month. A little over 10…
