J. Cole’s Friday Night Lights is one of the best releases of the year.Â J. Cole has set the bar high for his debut album coming in 2011.Â Here, J. Cole discusses his upcoming album with Rap-Up.
Now that J. Cole has given fans the appetizer with his latest mixtape Friday Night Lights, heâ€™s focusing his attention on the main course. The â€œWho Datâ€ rapper shares a few more details about his highly-anticipated debut.
â€œThe album could be done. If I needed to put it out next week, I would be able to,â€ the Roc Nation signee tells Rap-Up.com. â€œMy expectations were already super high and I think the fansâ€™ were too, but now that the mixtape is out and the response is what it is, I kinda want to go back in and do a few more songs that are that much better, just to boost the level of the album.â€
He is now eyeing a spring drop date for the project. â€œI think weâ€™re looking at a March release date or something around there with the single coming in a couple weeks.â€
While he wouldnâ€™t reveal the songâ€™s title, he did hint at a guest appearance. â€œAs of right now, it has a feature,â€ he says of the undisclosed tune, adding, â€œI think itâ€™s what a lot people been waiting on.â€
And despite Cole World being thrown around, he has not announced an official title. â€œI never announced that as the name of the album, but itâ€™s a sick title. I did think about that as a possibility, but as of right now, thatâ€™s not the title,â€ he states. â€œWhen I get a release date that Iâ€™m confident about, then Iâ€™ll put out the title of the album.â€
One thing he would share was his current list of collaborators. â€œIf the album was to come out tomorrow, it would be me for the majority of the production, No I.D., one from Danjahandz, and one from Brian Kidd.â€
