Jermaine Lamarr Cole, better known by his stage name J. Cole, is a native of Fayetteville, North Carolina. In 2009, he became the first artist to sign to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. His debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story was released on September 27, 2011. Have a taste of his skills…

Cole’s sophomore effort, “Born Sinner” features a bevy of guest appearances, such as Miguel, Amber Coffman, Kendrick Lamar, TLC, James Fauntleroy, 50 Cent, Bas and Jhené Aiko. The album was also primarily produced by Cole himself, along with others such as Jake One, Syience and Elite.

Also along with fame comes the introspective tracks (“Runaway”, “Chaining Day” and “Born Sinner”, duh) on how far an artist is willing to go, potentially sacrificing his soul in the “big city of dreams” to the success powers that be. With much to prove and like a great album should always do, there is plenty to rewind and will take several listens to fully digest. “Ain’t That Some Sh-t”. Yup, point taken from the equally magical and repulsive music biz, the “Land of the Snakes”.
