“I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have,” said J. Cole via his website. “Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space).”
Late last night, Cole wanted to give his fans a few of those songs because “you deserve them.”
Cole went on to state, via Twitter, that this is not a mixtape nor a preview to the album. Oh yeah, he also mentioned that the first single from his highly anticipated Sideline Story follow-up album will be dropping this week.
