Besides Kid Cudi, Drake and a few others, most rappers choose to rap about the same old: money, cars, clothes, etc. But when Jermaine “J. Cole” was signed to Roc Nation, it seemed like Hip-Hop got a breath fresh air.
J. Cole’s lyrics were refreshing and to back up his rhymes, were his unique beats. J. Cole dropped two of the hottest mixtapes in Hip-Hop: The Warm Up (2009) and Friday Night Lights (2010). After those mixtapes released, J. Cole was named the Prince of Hip-Hop. But with all the hype surrounding those two mixtapes, fans failed to realize that J. Cole has yet to drop his first album.
J. Cole has been pushing back his album release date for a few months now. Stating that he wants it to be completely perfect for his fans, he has finally come up with a date. J. Cole released news this week that his album will be dropping in September and from what he says, it should be well worth the wait.
“I’m trying to find ways to word it without sounding overly egotistical, and I want to remain humble, but also let people know it’s actually (really) incredible.” “I’m sitting on gold, man. I don’t wanna speak it up too much but I’m super confident in it. I’m super proud.”
Along with the news of his album date, J. Cole will be releasing a new single, “Lost Ones.” Fans can get more info on the single and the rest of the album by watching an interview posted on the Real Talk NY website.
I look forward to hearing J. Cole’s album and I know that he will hold his crown of Prince of Hip-Hop.Tags: album date, Drake, Friday Night Lights, Hip-Hop, J. Cole, Kid Cudi, lost ones, mixtape, prince of hip-hop, Roc Nation, The Warm Up
