Hip-Hop’s man-in-waiting J.Cole sat down with Hot 93.7’s Jenny Boom Boom and Craig G to discuss his now cancelled mixtape. The project was riginally scheduled to drop as a teaser to his long awaited debut album Cole Word: The Sideline Story due out September 27th.

He put on record that “I’m not gonna put out a mixtape. I just decided this. But the music I was gonna put on the mixtape, I’m just gonna slowly…drop it.” Hmmm, maybe in the vain of Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Friday releases? Yeezy must’ve taught him well.—Keenan Higgins
