J. Cole’s sideline days are over.
With his first album Cole World: The Sideline Story, the Fayetteville, North Carolina MC solidified his position as a bonafide rap star touring the world with hit records and then earning himself a nomination at the 54th Grammy Awards. Now with his sophomore LP Born Sinner scheduled for a June 25 release on Roc Nation/Sony the once humble kid stands tall as confident man on a musical mission.
"I didn’t know conceptually what it was going to be, I just knew that I had to come right back. I wasn’t satisfied with the first album," Cole says of Born Sinner.
