In a tweet earlier today, J. Cole announced that his sophomore album, Born Sinner, has been completed and the release date has been moved up to June 18th from the original June 25th, which means that it will be debuting on the same day as a certain Chicago producer's highly anticipated Yeezus. Stay tuned for the track listing and in the meantime, make sure to check out the Kendrick Lamar Born Sinner story that Cole released to build hype for the album.
Here's hoping that J. Cole the singer doesn't ruin too many of J. Cole the rapper's songs (as demonstrated on the album's first single, "Power Trip"). Hit the jump for the deluxe version artwork and the stream/download of one of my favorite pre-Warm Up Cole freestyles over Mobb Deep's classic "Shook Ones" instrumental. Via Xclusives Zone.
