On his "Red Nation" hit, Game rapped "niggas'll trade they soul to be Drake or J. Cole." Of all the new talent in the rap game, they have received the most attention. Drake was already a popular mixtape rapper, while J. Cole is Jay-Z's product.

Drake made the transition to the big time last year and is now working on his second album. J. Cole, on the other hand, has been subject to several delays. It, undoubtedly, got to J. Cole, but now his debut release is on the way.

What Drake and J. Cole have brought to a struggling hip hop game has not gone unnoticed by Royce da 5'9. The Detroit rapper recently spoke on the two rappers. Royce da 5'9 said Drake, J. Cole, and artists like them, are bringing lyricism back to the game, when it was lacking.

Royce credits them, also Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, Kanye West, for bringing lyrics back when lyrics were not even cool in hip hop. He referenced Waka Flocka Flame when he said he did not have lyrics and did not want them because they did not make any money.
