YES!!! It’s finally happening. After waiting for 2 years now, J. Cole’s debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story is getting closer and closer to being officially released. J. Cole was the first artist signed to Jay-Z’s new all-inclusive company Roc Nation and is pretty consensually known as the dude to watch in hip-hop. The Warm Up, Cole’s second mixtape, is still one of the nastiest, dirtiest, filthiest, grimiest, and all-other-synonyms-ist records I have ever heard. 9.27.11, everybody. Save the date. I know I will.
Sidenote: Jay-Z also signed Jay Electronica. You think dude likes sound of “Jay” a little bit?
