Album Stream: J. Cole ‘Born Sinner’


J. Cole’s upcoming LP, Born Sinner, leaked onto the Internet yesterday. But, instead of going into crisis mode, the Roc Nation rapper went ahead and made the project available for full stream. “Thank you for the love. Rather than acting like the leak didn’t happen, here’s the official album stream for those who haven’t heard it,” Cole tweeted.

So, here it is folks. And make sure to purchase the album on June 18.

  • Mustafa Elbaf

    I honestly expected more from this album :( disappointed

    • Mahsoom

      what more, that Jesus himelf was on the fucking hook of power trip, get the fuck outta here

      • Mustafa Elbaf

        Firstly power trip is a great track in the top three on the album in terms of overall production. Secondly you obviously have no clue about his capabilities cause if you did then you would’ve known this is far from his best work. I’ve been fucking with Cole since day one. Thirdly the overall feel of the album was dull. He was giving away tracks (truly yours) like his album was gonna be a classic. IMO the material on the album wasn’t as good as his mixtapes. Listen to his old shit it is gold. So jump off his dick you clueless idiot, admit this album is average and that he didn’t deliver on this project. I’m a MASSIVE fan love Cole my favorite rapper ATM but you’ve gotta be honest. I’m really disappointed!!!!

          lol people like you make me laugh. If you are a REAL cole fan like you claim you would realize everything this album engulfs about the man’s life. He’s giving you everything, exactly how he feels, everything hes been through just to make it to the top. Mixtape days were glorious and we’ll never forget them, but the man was in a different place at the time. He’s not the same dude. He’s seen shit and been through shit he could never even fathom. The whole body of work that is Born Sinner is classic and unlike what any other rapper is doing right now. He’s changing the game slowly but surely and when you look back 20 years from now Born Sinner is going to be at the focal point of that discussion. The production is insane, his lyricism goes so hard and is incredibly intelligent maybe you just dont understand it and his flow, come on. He’s switches his flow like crazy throughout the enire album. Take another listen and realize the growth this man has endured and the beautiful music he’s made because of it.

            idk I feel he never stood on topic and lost me a few times and then bounced back….staying true to the meaning of the song wouldv made it more enjoyable…he is usually good at this but didn’t show in this album

          • Adriana Garcia

            let me correct myself some of his songs not the whole album
