J. Cole- Lost Ones

J. Cole released the video for his song Lost Ones off his debut album Cole World. Directed by BB Gun, the video was made before signed he got a record deal and features a younger Cole and his girlfriend arguing whether or not to keep their child. *sorry folks-gotta visit youtube to peep the vid*

The video and song reminded me a lot of Common's Retrospect for Life. I felt it did what it was supposed do-provide visuals for a song. I must say though, both songs provided slightly different view points on pregnancy, young mums/paps to be, abortion, growing up without a father and relationships.

Check out Common ft Lauryn Hill- Retrospect for Life in comparison.
