J. Cole's been quietly constructing his delayed sophomore album for some time now. While his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, dropped in 2011, Fans were only treated to scattered mixtape tracks while waiting on his next project. Well, in the wee hours of the morning, Cole answered his loyal followers with a piece of his soul.

I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have. Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space).
Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul..
The wait is over.
PS – 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
