J Cole Just Literally Changed The Game With ‘ATM’ (@JColeNC)

j coleThere is a lot of mix feelings about the visuals for J Cole’s ATM. Some people are really feeling it and labeling it as a whole next level in hip-hop, while others are saying it’s lame, wack etc. As far as we here at MJ Magazine is concerned, both the song and the video are on point. We fully endorse and support J Cole and what he’s doing.

Unfortunately, many people miss the underlying message, which is simply that “money isn’t everything” and “we shouldn’t sell ourselves for this money.”

Check out the video here and decide for yourself.
