J. Cole is the latest guest to sit down with Kevin Hart on his “Hart to Heart” show, and Kevin asked Cole about his thoughts on the current state of hip-hop.

Cole explained, “I think it’s fire,” he shared, as seen in the clip above. “It’s a whole different ballgame, you know what I mean? A whole different crop of young superstars and styles… I’ve been feeling like this for maybe a year or two [and] I hate to say it almost because it sounds almost like pandering, but I really do think, like, man, it’s a lot of fire female rappers.”

After stating that female rappers are making “the most exciting” commercial songs, he added, “They’re giving us a lot of fire moments.”
