J. Cole Says He’s No Longer Putting Out A Mixtape, But Will Release Several Songs Prior To His Album Release [News]
Initially J. Cole planned to drop a new mixtape before the release of his debut album, but he has now changed his plans. Instead he will release the songs that would have been on the mixtape before the release of “Cole World: The Sideline Story”.
The reason behind the move was primarily because of how close the dates of the release dates for the mixtape and album would have been. He spoke exclusively to Hartford, Connecticut’s HOT 93.7.
“I’m not gonna put out a mixtape,” said Cole. “I just decided this, but the music I was gonna put on the mixtape I’mma just slowly drop it. I’ll just drop it out online and they’ll find it. You know, my fans will find it how they will. I’m confident. I don’t wanna run and drop a mixtape. I don’t want people to get confused with that. I don’t want them to love it, because they’ll love it. If I put out a mixtape they’re gonna love it cause I don’t know how to put out a bad mixtape. That’s the problem. So I don’t want them to fall in love too much and them my album comes four weeks later, five weeks later. We only eight weeks out. That’s not a long time. I’ll be giving them songs in the meantime so it’s cool.”
Although the album release date is approaching, J. Cole reveals that he is still waiting on a verse from Jay-Z.
“I haven’t even heard his verse. He [Jay-Z] got five days to turn that in,” Cole explained. “I don’t know if I like need to change my verse yet or not. If he tries to kill me then I’mma change my verse. Yea, I’m not going out like that. The hook is on there and everything so he’ll get it.”
Cole World: The Sideline Story will be released on 27th September.
