Title: "Born Sinner" | Release Date: Spring
After becoming the first artist signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation in 2009, J. Cole delivered on his mixtape buzz with the release of his debut "Cole World: The Sideline Story," which bowed atop the Billboard 200 chart in September 2011. Since then, the Fayetteville, North Carolina native began work on a collaborative project with Kendrick Lamar and headlined worldwide tours. Last November, the wheels started turning on his sophomore set "Born Sinner," led by lead single “Miss America,” which peaked at No. 34 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The rapper, who promised a short film to coincide with the album, most recently moved the LP to Spring 2013.
