In 2011 when J.Cole's album 'Cole World: The Sideline Story,' was released I was obsessed. Just like one of his tracks says I couldn't get enough. I wanted Cole in the car, my house, the shower and my bedroom...cause those are my most favorite places to bump a beat. Obviously... I literally had waves of excitement the moment I pressed play for each and every song. Your thoughts may be wondering what's J.Cole up to now?
J.Cole is set to release another album June.18th but some lucky listeners got their fix of this mellifluous rapper's songs four nights ago. Cole set up release parties for a full stream listen of his album in eight select locations around the globe including New York City, London, Toronto, Houston, Chicago, L.A, Atlanta and his hometown of Fayetteville, N.C. Invite only participants were the first audience ears to hear Cole's sophomore album as he was rumored to have kept heavy watch over the much anticipated compilation. Cole has had tremendous success the past few years with being named the best new artist at the 54th Grammy awards and acquiring an ever growing fan base. Yet the 28 year old rapper made a decision that has shocked the music world; he decided to release his album the same day as Kayne West's release of the controversial album "Yeezus." Is Cole committing career suicide or is he making the move that will rocket his music through the charts? Difficult to predict what could make or break success in a musician's professional career but Cole stresses that he's proud of his music and ,even amongst criticism, has stayed true to the rap game. My personal preference will be to purchase the J.Cole album but I'm a sucker for his music and I think he deserves the credit. When June.18th comes which rap city train will you be boarding? The Cole express or the Kanye kaboose? I promise that wasn't a Kardasian jab. She seems like a very nice lady and she is pregnant. Which means she can do whatever her hormone filled body wants.
