In case you haven’t heard, the world is predicted to end today. So far we’re good and safe but in case sh*t gets real in the next few hours, make sure you listen to J. Cole’s new track before you check out.
Cole wrote a message for his fans explaining that if the world ended it would be wack because he wouldn’t have been able to drop this song:
“If the world ends tomorrow, damn. I would be mad as shit for 2 reasons. First, I’m not with my family. That would suck.
What would also be wack is if I never got to drop this song.
Summer of 08′. Mark Pitts meeting had happened a month ago. He said he bad words with me, but he not talking about signing me. Ok. bad word that. I’ma make my new shit so stupid that the next time he meet with me he gonna HAVE to sign me. Same summer I made Grown Simba and started The Warm Up with a “bad word it” mentality. A few special songs I made that summer haven’t dropped yet. This is one of them.
Some of the most fun I ever had making a record. Alone in my room, making the beat, writing the raps, Jammin to this.
Here we are, Years Later, and right on time. Enjoy
– oh yea. Shout to the spanish nigga that came through and played the percussions. To the cool ass horn player that laced me, I forgot his name. This was my first Quincy Jones moment. Shout to Lil Cole. Shout to Aristotle. Shout to YOU.”
Cole is prepping for the release of his sophomore album Born Sinner which is due to be released on his birthday, January 28.
