So who is going to be the next big thing in hip-hop? I have my money on J. Cole, whose rapping and production skills have quickly earned him a high level of respect from artists and fans alike. He has been taking his time with the release of his highly anticipated solo debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story, but luckily he has some tunes for us to chomp on during the wait. For our first teaser, Cole unleashes a full EP called Any Given Sunday #1, which serves as the introduction to his Sunday series of promotional material (hit the skip to read more on that). The EP has five songs, all of which have some sort of little story behind them. Some are new, some were going to be on the album, and some are just tracks that Cole wanted to unleash to his fans. Cole World: The Sideline Story is due out Sept. 27.
Head over J. Cole’s blog to download the EP and hit the skip to read more about it.
1. Like A Star- Was saving this for the 2nd album. Due to some other shit beyond my control, I’ma let this out now.
2. Knock On Wood- One of my fav. freestyles. OG Dreamvillains gotta be reminded, new fans gotta get put on.
3. Pity- Brand new J. Cole, Omen, Voli. Produced by Voli @volitheentity
4. How High- at one point this was guaranteed to go on The Sideline Story.
5. Unabomber- Just heard this today for the first time in a longgg time. Love these raps.
Every Sunday til the album drops I’ll be back with something. Maybe just 1 song, maybe a video, depending on how I’m feeling.
September 27! We almost there. Until then…
