J. Cole Featuring 21 Savage & Morray

SONGWRITER­S Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, Jermaine Cole, Jacob Dutton

“my. life” is the second collaborat­ion between J. Cole and 21 Savage following their 2020 Grammy win for “a lot.” On the fan-favorite track, they don’t sound satisfied by their successes, as they search for contentmen­t. While North Carolina rookie Morray pays homage to Styles P and Pharoahe Monch’s 2002 single “My Life” on the chorus, Cole and Savage’s verses tackle subjects like overcoming childhood trauma: “My family tree got a history of users that struggle with demons,” raps Cole, while Savage responds: “The stuff that I’ve seen got me traumatize­d.”
