Nov. 12 Update: J. Cole has now released his latest project and first since 2009. The mixtape, Friday Night Lights, was inspired by Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music series, most notably the track “Devil In a New Dress.” You can download the mixtape below.

So it appears that J. Cole will be releasing a new mixtape after all. We had an inkling that he would be doing this, especially after several new tracks from him had popped up on the net over the past month or so. The speculated title by many was Villematic, but it turns out Cole’s again going with the sports theme here. Friday Night Lights, which serves as the follow-up to his breakthrough mixtape The Warm Up, will not be just a throwaway collection of leaked freestyles. Instead, the North Carolina native is putting together a proper project, which will feature the newly leaked “When I’m Gone.” As much as I, and others, would rather hear his still untitled proper debut, Friday Night Lights will certainly hold us over until that record finally drops.
Friday Night Lights is due out Nov. 12. [Nah Right]
