J Cole to Release Debut Album This Summer

J. Cole is spending his summer vacation on tour with Rihanna, but the rapper is set to rock his debut album by summer's end. He will also announce the official title and first single shortly. "The announcement's coming soon," Cole told Billboard.com. "We gotta clear the sample for the single, which is taking super long, for whatever reason... but as soon as I drop that single I'll get the album title, the album release date, and then we're gonna have a great summer." Damn, the legalities of clearing samples for making us wait for a new J. Cole song.
Cole teased some details about the album, saying it is "really heavy -- heavy in a good way. At first it hit a point where I was a little nervous; I thought it would be too emotional. But it ended up balancing really well, with fun and humor, and then some aggression, and then the really emotional-type of songs that I'm really good for. I feel like it's a really complete album."
