J. Cole Drops Any Given Sunday Mixtapes, Adds Revolution Date
Once upon a time, not long ago, rising rap star J. Cole performed locally as Rihanna's opening act at BankAtlantic Center. Prior to that, we spoke to him, and in addition to his skills on the mic, he's quite a gentleman.
As it turns out, Mr. Jermaine Cole is taking a page out of the books of Drake, Lil Wayne, and Wiz Khalifa and making South Florida a regular stop. Tipped by The 305.com (and confirmed by the venue), the first signee to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label is coming back for a show at Revolution on September 11.
Although we're still waiting for the September 27 liftoff of his debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story, there's some new material that dropped just this week.
The mixtapes, dubbed Any Given Sunday volumes one and two, feature iconic shots of Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali on the covers and feature a variety of tracks that won't appear on his album but are among Cole's faves.
One in particular, "Like a Star," is one of the best uses of Corrine Bailey Rae we've ever heard.
