J. Cole Announces New Album

North Carolina’s own J. Cole just went on UStream to announce the name and release date of his highly anticipated followup to 2011’s Cole World. And it’s called….

Born Sinner – scheduled to hit your iTunes and music stores on January 28, 2013.

Since 2011, J. Cole has sold more than half a million records, earned a Grammy nod, and has even teased a dual album with Kendrick Lamar. After the success of good kid, m.A.A.d city, the rap world seems primed for another huge release by a talented young gun. But Cole had better beware the dreaded sophomore slump – with label president Jay-Z behind him, he’s certainly got the backing to create something special.

Will it be a smash like his last album?
