J. Cole Drops ‘Truly Yours’ EP, Announces New Single
J. Cole is thanking fans for much deserved success following his debut studio album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, by dropping a free downloadable EP titled Truly Yours.
Cole World, which released on September 27, 2011, went certified gold, selling more than 500,000 units. to many, it was one of the top hip-hop albums of 2012.
Along with the new mixtape, the rapper released the following note to his fans, where he reveals that a new single will be out sometime this week:
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).
Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as f**k for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul..
The wait is over.
PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
1 – Can I Holla At You
