First Spin: Born Sinner – J. Cole
It was not long after the first listening sessions for Born Sinner finished when the album leaked and even shorter after that when J. Cole posted a stream of the album online. Given the situation, there is a good chance all interested parties have had opportunities to hear the album in its entirety. We have.
While no means a bad album, J. Cole’s first studio release, Cole World: Sideline Story, was a tad bit disappointing. In a sense, Sideline Story was a project that played it close to home. Since Cole has been promoting Born Sinner, the young Carolina native has expressed his growth as an artist. However talking about growth and actually displaying growth are two different things. With our first impressions, we are hearing good things.
For this First Spin, Boman and Mickey Retro examine what this project means for J. Cole, how his production has improved in the time since his first album and of course, what it means to disappoint Nas.
