J. Cole Scores Missy Elliott on ‘Nobody’s Perfect’ — Listen
J. Cole's debut LP, 'Cole World: The Sideline Story,' drops Sept. 27, and as the release date nears, the North Carolina MC is dropping yet another track from the effort.
Fresh off the premiere of the Jay-Z-assisted track 'Mr. Nice Watch' comes 'Nobody's Perfect.' The rap star reflects on his life, which has changed drastically during the two years he's spent crafting his first album. From visiting the island of Barbados, getting "handed diamonds and pearls" and stressing over "10s and better" like Rihanna, Cole is living the good life.
"Remember when I used to be stressed over D'wanna/ Now a n---- only texting, get stressed over Rihannas/ I'm talking 10s and better," he rhymes.
Missy Elliott steps in for the chorus, lending her silky vocals to sing, "Nobody's perfect, ay, but you're perfect for me," rather than serve up an animated rap.
