J. Cole - Cole World: The Sideline Story


Today marks an important day in the hip hop community, as following three mixtapes, sharing the stage with legends and headlining sold out tours… J. Cole has decided it’s time release his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story.

Produced by Roc Nation, this album was anticipated to be a debut much like Jay-Z’s Blueprint, bringing that timeless appeal to give Cole some staying power. This is helped by the fact that Cole World has no real weak songs, and appearances by Drake, Missy Elliot, Trey Songz, and Hova himself adds the variety needed to never have to skip a track. The way the album was put together also deserves some credit, as the songs are arranged to make for a smooth run through of a larger piece of music. Cole World was slated to be released today, but it seems like everyone was tipped off to the leak early, including me. It’s always nice to know someone on the inside of the art world. Preview it below, then Buy or Download the whole album for yourself.
