J. Cole has announced that he’ll probably release a mixtape this summer before his album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, drops in September. In his words, “I’m going to go ahead and say probably more than likely this summer before the album. Because I have a lot of songs I want to put out. I don’t want to wait a year to put ‘em out,” he said. “I really love these songs, I ride around listening to these songs and I wouldn’t mind putting them out. It’s not going to be The Warm Up or Friday Night Lights , meaning that I treated them like real albums. This is going to be more of like a true mixtape. Don’t expect the album, but expect the mixtape.” New music from J. Cole is always good news to me. Enjoy.
