With anticipation building after the releases of Truly Yours and Truly Yours 2 mixtapes , along with hit single Power Trip ft. Miguel… Cole has officially released the album covers for his upcoming album, Born Sinner. The album has been set to drop June 18th (Same as Kanye’s, Yeezus but i’ll save that for another post). Recently J Cole sat down with MTV to explain why he went with the title “Born Sinner” and the new concept for his music.
“I feel like the basketball era of my music was over. This new album and concept represents me and where I am now and where I have been over the past year and a half.”
Be sure to check out J. Cole’s interview with MTV.

“Lights Please” is a track that Cole world refers to as a classic. Off his mixtape, The Warm Up, Cole stated that this track would be on his debut album, before he was signed or even knew when his album would ever release. In a concert he performed in 2009, he joked about his album dropping in 2012, not knowing that he would be just months shy of actually dropping his album in 2012 [ironic huh?]. “Lights Please” was also the tack that officially “put him on.” It got him an interview with Mark Pitts, who played it for Jay-Z, who then wanted to meet him. From that, Jermaine Cole is now a part of RocNation!
