Right before J. Cole stepped on stage to host a New Year’s Eve at TAO in Las Vegas, the NC rapper revealed that Born Sinner was being pushed back. In a short interview with Pop Stop TV, Cole stated he was still working on his next album. “Nah, it’s not going to be January 28. It’s going to be a little later than that. I needed more time.”
The original date of Jan. 28, is actually J. Cole’s birthday, but the expectations are sky high for his sophomore release so it delay seemed inevitable.
Here’s another video of J. Cole discussing the album before his appearance at TAO and a short clip from his NYE apperance. You can also listen to “Miss America,” the first single off Born Sinner below. [XXL]
