May 10, 2013 | Patrick Homeyer
Roc Nation emcee J Cole took the rap world by storm in 2011 with his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story. This June, the southern rapper with the East Coast flow hopes to continue his success with the his second LP, Born Sinner.
Last Nov. 13, J Cole released his first single, entitled "Miss America." With its socially conscious lyrics,the song became an instant hit, despite lacking a radio-ready hook. Fans can now hear the album's second single, "Power Trip," featuring the singer Miguel. On "Power Trip," Cole and Miguel collaborate to produce a catchy song with meaningful lyrics.
Unfortunately for fans, J Cole has not yet released the new album's track list. He's also kept the list of guest producers and artists under wraps, although he's said that features will only be a small part of the album. Many fans have speculated that Roc National label owner Jay Z will make an appearance.
Last May, J. Cole announced that he and West Coast spitter Kendrick Lamar are collaborating on an album, which has yet to be titled. With two new albums in the next few months, Cole is giving fans a lot to look forward to.
