Official Album Art for J. Cole Debut Album

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?

Pick up The Warmup while you wait over at Datpiff.
