To say that J. Cole’s debut album is one of the most anticipated albums of the year is an understatement.
The talented MC announced via Twitter that his album, titled “Cole World: The Sideline Story”, is slated for a September 27, 2011 release. This title will continue with the basketball-themed titles which were used for his previous mixtapes “The Warm Up” and “Friday Night Lights”. It's almost like Kanye West's college-themed albums, only this time a sport-theme is used.
The album will include production credits from the likes of No I.D., the incredible Danja, and Brian Kidd, along with a collaboration with Jay-Z. The first single, ‘Work Out’, which samples Kanye West’s “New Workout Plan” and Paula Abdul’s “Straight Up”, was released last week.
J. Cole has really been working hard and fans have been eagerly waiting upon his debut. Although his “buzz” single, “Who Dat”, failed to ignite the charts, I have a feeling that he will obtain high first-week sales.
