Last week J Cole released his “Truly Yours” EP and promised to follow it up with the first single to his much anticipated upcoming album “Born Sinner”. Well here it is, with the help of Miguel on the hook Cole puts his spin on a “radio friendly single” for the ladies. Cole sat down with MTV’s RapFixLive and had this to say:
“The most exciting part about that song ['Power Trip'] and the reason why we went with it is that it sounds like nothing that’s out, and it was between that, and this other record that’s like, maybe a bigger record, but ‘Power Trip’ had that newer sound. They both have a new sound, but ‘Power Trip,’ absolutely you couldn’t point to any song on the radio and be like, ‘Oh, this sounds like that’…everything from the beat to the way that I’m flowing, you’ve never really heard me so sleepy. I really did them verses in my crib and just loved the way they felt.”
Brooklyn rapper Sean Price is the most interesting man in the world in this retro-style video for ‘BBQ Sauce,’ which features Pharoahe Monch on chorus duties. Produced by Evidence and DJ Babu (of Dilated Peoples), ‘BBQ Sauce’ is off Price’s latest album, ‘Mic Tyson’ which dropped at the end of October. The deluxe edition is out now at iTunes. Sean P is currently doing an international tour with stops in the UK, France and Germany, check out tickets here!
J Cole got on twitter yesterday to unleash a new 5 song “EP” to tide fans over til his sophomore studio album “Born Sinner” comes out in a couple months. Cole also makes note that his first single for the album will be released this week, so check back for that
Cole had this to say -
“I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have.
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)”

Shady Records President Paul Rosenburg confirmed to Billboard.com this week that Eminem is “far into the process” of recording his untitled eighth studio album. He also noted “We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He’s been working on it for some time. It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when. We’ve got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we’re trying to see what else lines up.”
Paul and Shady have a lot on deck in 2013 with Yelawolf’s sophomore album and 50 Cent’s “Street King Immortal”, both expected to be out in the first half of this year, so lets hope everything lives up to expectations!
