Yesterday, J.Cole unveiled the official artwork for his upcoming sophomore album ‘Born Sinner’. He also surprised us by revealing that he was pushing up the release date from June 25th to June 18th, the same day Kanye West and Mac Miller release their albums. Billboard were able to talk to Cole about his decision and why he wants to compete with Kanye’s ‘Yeezus’ album. Here is what he had to say:
“Instantly the lightbulb [turned on]… it got real. I made one phone call to somebody that would know, just to make sure first. As soon as I got it confirmed, I was like, ‘Yo…’ The idea hit me instantly: ‘You got to go to that date’. I’m not going to sit [here]… I worked too hard to come a week later after Kanye West drops an amazing album. It’d be like, ‘Oh and J.Cole dropped too, a week later.’ Nah. I’m going to go see him on that date. He’s the greatest. So it’s like, I’m a competitor by nature so it was instant, it wasn’t even a thought.”
“It’s a definite statement about how I feel about my album, which is confident. At the same time, let’s not forget this is Kanye West. He bets 100, 1,000, whatever the perfect is. His track record is flawless. I’m only expecting an incredible album from him. But I know what I have.”
