J Coop – Notion [Video]

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s own J Coop recently teamed up with videographer Tim D to drop this new lyric video for the track “Notion.” This track comes off J’s recent Self Reflection: Do I Stand Out? EP. Which was all kinds of great. But let’s get into the song at-hand.

I’m ‘a be real with y’all. When first I saw the track name on the EP, I thought of that Drizzy Drake joint called “The Motion.” But J Coop takes it all in a different direction. He talks about the “Notion.” Notions are beliefs and views on things. So J Coop uses this joint to spit all of his notions at his listeners. Oh. He also uses this track to showcase his flow. It’s a beast. Check the video after the jump.

The rhyme scheme stays consistent throughout the track. Many of the lines in each verse end in some sort of soft rhyme. In the first verse, everything rhymes with “notion.” There’s the “potion” (aka: sizzurp), rolling in (and flowing in) with the “motion”, as well as a few sage words of wisdom: “Don’t fix it/ If the shit aint broken.”

Seems like J Coop is practising what he’s preaching. He’s got his thing going and it’s working; shit aint broken, so he’s not trying to reinvent his M.O.
