J. Cole has hinted that his debut album will hit stores in the fall. The Roc Nation rapper revealed that he has now finished recording his album.
J. Cole spoke during a break from performinng at the Bonnaroo Arts & Music Festival, and he said he isn’t excited about waiting for the album.
“The only thing I’m not looking forward to about the album… I just finished the album last week,” he said. “It’s weird. It didn’t feel like it because I’ve got to wait three months for it to actually come out. I’m used to putting out a mixtape I’ve been working on for a year and instantly see the response. I can instantly follow everybody’s response to all the songs.”
The Fayetteville, North Carolina rapper isn’t content with just sitting back. “With this album, when you gotta release it commercially, I gotta sit around and wait and see what people think,” he continued. “I know it’s incredible, but I probably won’t really feel it until that two-week period when an album usually leaks and I see the responses, or the day it drops and I see the responses. I’m excited, but the real excitement comes when the people hear it.”
