Which is better: The Warm Up or Friday Night Lights?

It's no question that these are J. Cole's two seminal works. Cole probably won't even surpass these two projects (unless Born Sinner proves otherwise). Which of these do you think is cole at his best?

    I will say this tho, fnl imo had better, more polished production. But warm up i think was better lyrically. He had more storytellin and conceptual songs on there.

    All this. Warm Up felt like an actual mixtape. FNL made me mad cuz he threw away what could've been a really dope album, then give us the slighty above par Cole World, which felt more like a mixtape than FNL.

    And Looking For Trouble is fuckin epic.

    The Warm Up
    I loved the warm up. I will personally go as far to say it's in my top 10 mixtapes of all time.

    He really talked about internal conflict a lot on that tape. The struggle between right and wrong, light and dark, Black and white, within every man and in our society. It was very subtle too - he did not do it solely by coming outright and saying it directly. He did it through story telling, through description of his own feelings and the details of how he saw the nature of his world.

    FNL was dope, but he changed a bit and it sounds like he tried to go for a more appealing sound. It was the beginning of his quest to get that radio hit.

    The thing wit his album is u could tell that he was just tryin to play it safe. Wit songs like workout, can't get enough, nobody's perfect, Mr. Nice watch, cole world, and in the mornin, he was desperately tryin to chase a hit due to pressure. He's been sayin lately that he has more freedom and he's in the same space now as he was in durin the warm up, so maybe he can redeem himself on born sinner *crosses fingers* .

    Cosign 100%.. I remember when Higher was rumored to be a single for Cole's debut before FNL came out..

    And Cole sounded real sharp on The Warm Up, and the concepts were on point as well..
