J. Cole is making sure his next project Born Sinner is on our radars. His first EP reestablished the Roc Nation rhymer’s talents have gotten sharper. Truly Yours 2 continues to whet our appetites for the album— just press play on his tracks with guests 2 Chainz and Young Jeezy. Lyrically, Cole shines on the soulful song “Cole Summer” and the melodic “3 Wishes.” He even made a great reference to Tia and Tamara Mowry, which put a lot of smiles to fans who grew up in the ’90s. To Cole, these may be his throwaways, but rest assured fans can’t get enough. See you June 25.
